There is this marriage in Crediton 10 Feb 1850
Robert Billing 55 Widower
Mary Shopland 61 Widow Father John Shopland Gentleman

1851 census East St Cediton

Robert Billing 57 b Crediton
Mary Billing 66 b Crediton
Emma Shopland 18 daughter unmarried milliner

1853 marriage Crediton 25 April 1853
James  Elston 40
Emma Jane Shopland 20 straw bonnet maker Father James Shopland Carpenter

Witnesses Wm Shopland and Samuel Billing

The above would appear to back up the probability/possibility of the 1806 Shobrooke marriage.

William


Dent (Haltwhistle and Sacriston), Bell and Jetson (Haltwhistle), Postle, Ward, Longstaff, Purvis, Manners, Parnaby and Hardy (Co. Durham), Kennedy and McRobert (Banffshire), Reid(Bathgate), Watson (Wemyss), Graham (Libberton), Sandilands (Carmichael), Munro (Dingwall)

Ah, great! That also explains why I can't find a burial for Mary Shopland :)

Shame there are no family witnesses to Mary's marriage. Mary was a chairwoman and Robert a carrier.

Burial of a Mary Billing on 1 Feb 1855, aged 75, of Crediton. If this is Mary, and her age is right, she had children in her early 50s (baptisms up to 1833).

Maybe not the same one though if she was 61 at her marriage only 5 years earlier.....
