There are several options for your Mary, but I would suggest that she is the one baptised at Bishops Tawton 6 Mar 1742 to parents William & Hannah.
A William PUGSLEY was buried at Great Torrington 23 July 1767 and a Hannah PUGSLEY was buried there 25 Jan 1771.

"Devon", please. Only people who are not from Devon call it "Devonshire", though the "Devonshire Institute" mentioned in another suggests that there may be exceptions.

Athel_cb - I would suggest you tell that to the 12th Duke of Devonshire, the makers of Devonshire clotted cream, the Devonshire & Dorset Regiment, and The Devonshire Association - etc. etc. Devonshire was the former common and official name of Devon and Jan's usage of it is not incorrect.

The Duke of Devonshire is a poor example, because he's based in Derbyshire, and has little connection  with Devon. All the Dukes from the first until the present one have been based in Derbyshire. Devonshire cream has been called that for commercial reasons, and it's not a person.
