And lovely making a move to Devon, such a beautiful place :)

I have a Peter King who married a Peggy Dyer from Landrake in 1823. Peter Kings sister Mary King  was buried at Stoke Damerel. The Kings are also associated with Black Torrington and Devonport.
Any connection ?

cheers

Hi Jack,

In all probability, there is a connection, but my DYER root finished in 1747 when Elizabeth married William BENNETT. Landrake is only 6 miles from Stoke Damerel, and maybe where my DYERs originated. I'll do some work on the possibility.

Thanks garlands for your prompt reply.
I can offer this -
Peter King born circa 1731, married Mary unknown of Black Torrington, he died circa 1772 in Black Torrington . Their son - Charles King born circa 1767, he married Susana [maybe Lammas?] at St.Duncan Stepney. Their children were Mary, Thomas, & Peter. Mary Christened Stoke Damerel, Thomas born 1797 Devonport, married Mary unknown. Peter King born Devon, married Peggy [Margaret] Dyer 17.4.1823Landrake. he died 1881 Morphett Vale - South Australia. Peggy was baptised 1804 Landrake, she died 1886.

Hi Claire,

Regarding Mary DYER or DIER, there are so few instances of the surname in Stoke Damerel at that time that the odds are she is Elizabeth's sister. Accordingly, I have been looking for such a pairing. So far, the only instance I've found in Devon is in Tiverton (Mary bp 13 Jun 1722; Elizabeth bp 27 Jan 1728), father Isaac DYER. With Tiverton being nearly 50 miles from Stoke Damerel, is this too far for all practical purposes? This would mean Elizabeth was 19 when she married, so that would not rule her out.

Incidentally, Isaac baptized another Elizabeth on 20 Nov 1726, which would tend to point to Isacc's wife also being called Elizabeth.

As there are far more DYERs in Cornwall, I think I'm going to have to repeat this exercise over the Tamar. Any thoughts?

Hi George

I found it odd the couple don't seem to have any more children in Stoke Damerel, have you found any ?

There are numerous Bennetts and Dyers in the registers but no Elizabeths as you say.

And I can't see burials or marriages for the two (Ellizabeth & Mary) in Tiverton

Cornwall seems the more likely, I have ancestors born in Saltash who ended up living/marrying and buried in Stoke Damerel and vice versa. I would certainly do a search there.

It's a very difficult search though.

It's a pity the Stoke Damerel records dont have ages on the burial records, we may have had a better chance of nailing them down.

Hi Claire,

I agree; there must surely be other DYER children somewhere. I'll continue looking in and around Stoke Damerel.

As you've found no further trace of Elizabeth and Mary in Tiverton, perhaps they did move to Devonport. I'll see if I can find any more clues before crossing the river.

Jack,

If there is a connection between our DYER roots, Mary and Elizabeth must have had at least one brother, and the pair in Tiverton certainly did:-

17 Jul 1721 bap of Isaac s of Isaac (born 11 Jun 1721)
19 Dec 1722 burial of Isaac
17 May 1725 bap of Isaac s of Isaac

Of course, this proves nothing but it does not rule out a connection.

So far, I have not found a burial for Isaac, the father of this family.
