Possibly, a final entry on this topic. I don't know when Devonport became one of the country's principal naval ports, but I guess that the move of the DYER family to that location could have been the cause, or result, of Joseph and Adam joining the navy rather than the army. If they did, I know from my researches at Kew that the naval records there are excellent so, if anyone wants to find them, it would be a good place to start.

There was some data missing from my listing of the DYER family in Lanteglos-by-Fowey.

John was bap on 24 Feb 1716 and buried on 11 May 1721

The un-named female was actually bap Mary on 14 Oct 1718 and buried on 6 Nov 1718.

Other than the parents, none of the family was married in Lanteglos-by-Fowey.

Hi George

Seasons Greetings  :)

The two daughters of Joseph & Sabina married men who worked at the dockyard, so possibly the Dyers would move there for work, I know my ancestors in that area ( and in Saltash) worked on the docks or were Mariners.

Hi Claire'

I believe that I have now found William BENNETT, viz:-

25 Feb 1722 William son of Joseph & Katherine BENNETT, Saltash

Saltash to Stoke Damerel is only 3 miles.

I've not found his death or marriage elsewhere; surely, this is the man I want?

I cannot find a marriage for Joseph BENNETT and Katherine ??? which, presumably, would have taken place prior to 1722.

Can anyone help, please?

To help in my search, I've been looking for Elizabeth BENNETT's siblings in the hope that their names would enable me more precisely to identify her roots, but with a total lack of success. As mentioned previously, her parents married in 1747, and she was baptized in 1756. It seems incredible that she was the only child but, if not, where are the others? Can anyone help, please?
