Landford, Devon???
« on: Thursday 07 December 17 14:41 GMT (UK) »
From the 1851 census, I have a Sarah Bradford,born c 1838 in Landford, Devon.

Anybody know where this is? It's probably close to Sampford Perverel becase by 1861 that's here she was born!

Could it be Langford which is 9 miles south of Sampford Perverel at

50.818266, -3.384514

Alternatively there is a Landford in Dorset (or Wiltshire) at

50.968500, -1.635380
When and where did they die ?

Joseph Dodd born 1847 Corbridge, Northumberland  and Isabella Dodd (nee Thirwell) born 1848 Allendale, Northumberland. In 1911  they were living at Leadgate, Durham.

(As well as there being several people of these names around the surname is sometimes given as Dodds)

I think it may be Sandford.

This from the 1881 census. Note the "S" of Sampford Peverel.
