KGarrad..... thanks for the baptisms.  I didn't know where they actually lived.  Looks like Silverwell is right by Three Burrows.  Still a farm today called Silverwell Farm.

Cas..... Any witnesses to that marriage?!

Interesting.....

Sarah's mother was Elizabeth Ann HOOPER.  Maybe John was a relation.  Elizabeth Ann's parents were possible Daniel and Ann but this is a big maybe.... I found a Devon baptism for the approx year!!!

Thanks again

Bitzar.
