Sorry David I do not want to appear ungrateful but as it was obvious from what people commented that David was actually not a relative as he had died 2 years earlier than my husband's "Parfitt" that the enquiry had come to an end

Thank you everyone for the help you gave me  :)

Sorry JuliaP but I dont think you have read all this info thoroughly;

You quoted;

1) REGINALD Horace Parfit 22 January 1892
From Census and FreeBMD  Birth Reg he is born 1896***
Parfitt; Reginald Horace, March 1896, Plympton, 5b 208

2) GEORGE Parfitt 7 Dec 1850- Ivybridge
From Census he is born 1859****

3) Following George with Father ALFRED back, Alfred is born c 1835-1837 Pensford
1861 in Ivtbridge, Devon we have;
Alfred Parfitt, 24, born Pensford, Somerset   
Emma Parfitt, 20   
GEORGE Parfitt, 1, born Ermington, Devon 

Do you have Alfred/Emmas Marriage Cert?

4) 1851 ALFRED Parfitt born c 1836 Somerset is lodging in Newham, Glous

5) 1841 Jo found you this Census and info;

Priscilla Parfitt, born 15 Jul 1821, Plympton St Mary, to David (In the Royal Marine Artillery) and Mary.
Also William, 21 May 1826, David now Corporal in Marine Artillery

1841 Breconshire Wales
Mary Parfet 40
Priscilla 20
William 15
Mary Ann 12
James 10
ALFRED 5******


6) I found you ALFREDS Likely Baptism;
ALFRED Parffitt Baptised 4 Oct 1835, St Mary,Stanton Drew, Somerset
Mother MARY, Singlewoman
(FreeREG)

7) if you look at the info Jo posted the 1841 is the right Mary/ Son Alfred as info on David/Marys Daug Priscilla is given
She is there in Wales in 1841,

So DAVID died 1833, ALFRED is Mary Illeg Son.
Mary was nee WEST married to David Parfitt 1819

I also took you back another generation with DAVIDS Baptism, Parents, Siblings and Parents Marriage and their Burials.

1841 Wales Census Reg District is Crickhowell

Death Reg March 1851 Crickhowell, 26 244, for a Mary PARFITT

Hello
I just saw the all the info about David and Mary Parfitt - my ancestors - via their son William born 1826 in Plymouth. I have a record of David's enlistment in the Royal Marines (from PRO Kew) with all his details.

I can add a little more about Mary West. On the parish record of their marriage at Plymouth Charles (Dec 5 1819) she is a widow. I have spent a lot of time looking for a Mary marrying a Mr West (and a death of a Mr West) in the west country but have come up with nothing logical. The most likely person for Mary West is the one baptised in Plymouth Charles on 18 May 1798. Her parents were William and Elizabeth (Haynes). She seems to have gone back to her maiden name - if it changed - after the death of her first husband. I would be interested in any comments.

By the way some of David and Mary's line (via Mary Ann) and Mary's line (via Alfred) continued: Alfred Parfitt's (1835) son George (1859) married Mary-Ann Parfitt's (1828) daughter Emma (1862). They had 6 children including Reginald Horace Parfitt (1896-1967).

Hello
Please see our recent posts about David Parfitt and Mary on Somerset Lookups. We now think she was Mary Welch a widow in 1819.  We think her first marriage was to John Welch in 1817, he died in 1818. She was probably Mary Sulivan.

Hello
I have been alerted to a Mary West baptised 16 Feb 1801 in Plympton as a stronger possibility.

Hello,
For the record Mary West married David Parfitt in 1819 at Charles Plymouth. David was from Clutton Somerset. He enlisted in the Royal Marine Artillery at Bristol on 30 Aug 1804. He served in Canada according to the 1815 muster roll.  Mary West was baptised in Plympton 16 Feb 1801. Her parents were William West from Plympton and Johanna Tall from Charles Plymouth
