Can you find anything on Nicholas Curry and Sarah Patey, who married in 1780 in Tiverton?

Good Morning
Had a look here's what I have
Nicholas Curry buried Tiverton 28 June 1835 age 83 so born 1752
Sarah Curry buried  Tiverton  14.1.1815 age  57 so born 1757 (of Town of Tiverton).
 burial for another Nicholas Curry 12.3.1778
 Nicholas Curry admitted to the Workhouse 1.7.1776 reason -An aged man
There is an apprenticeship record for a Nicholas Cory of Tiverton carpenter 1744 taking an apprentice Marmaduke Williams for 3


I would guess that Nicholas born c 1752 is the son or of the other Nicholas carpenter of 1744.
So Nicholas s of Nicholas and Joane at Linkinhorne Cornwall 24.6.1752 might fit.
Nicholas married Joan Pellow 12.6.1743 at Altarnum.
Joane Currey buried 29.6.1777 at Tiverton
Children Elizabeth 1.6.1746 at Linkinhorne ,Joanne 2.10.1748,Mary 11.11.1750,Nicholas 1753,Alice 14.3.1756,Jane 6.10.1758 St Germains ,John 1.6.1760 and Arthur 5.1.1763.

There is a Nicholas s of Nicholas and Elizabeth Cory at Altarnum bapt  20 Sep 1713
Siblings William Mar 1716  and John 4.1.1710

This could be Nicholas's brother and his wife back at Tiverton.
Mary Curry d of Thomas and Mary at Tiverton 27.4.1765 bapt 8th May .Mary buried 8th May as well.

possible sons at Exeter st Mary Steps Thomas Cory 5.10.1762 and William 5.10.1763
Marriage at Exeter St John to Mary Griffin 17.9.1760 Thomas a joiner of St Hallows of the Walls Exeter. She was a widow.

Thomas s of Nicholas bapt 8 Dec 1737 born 20 Nov 1737 at Tiverton
Nicholas Currey married Elizabeth Badcock 27.2.1727
Elizabeth Curry buried 1.1.1728


Nicholas  Corry s of George bapt at Bickleigh 1.4.1683



Everything in bold is Tiverton  and I'm guessing 3 generations of Nicholas Curry's.
I know that's pushing it and trying to shoehorn things in.So see what you think.

I'll have a go at Sarah next

Me Again
Sarah Patey bapt Tiverton s of John and Joan Patey 12/21 Dec 1756 with twin sister Mary.
Mary buried 4.3.1757.
Another sister Joan 19 Sep 1759/bapt 4 Oct.
Brother John over at Bicklleigh 8.3.1752 of Priors Quarter Buried 5.4.1833 there and Sarah there 15 Sep 1755. Strangely she's buried at Tiverton 28.8.1755.

John Patey married Joan Bell at Tiverton 27 Dec 1751

Looks like John is the son of John baptised 23 Aug 1719 and born 7th.
Siblings Martha 19/22 .1.1717,Elizabeth 1/7/ Dec 1720,Thomas 10/17.2.1722,Thomas 8/19 .4.1724,Thomas 11/20,11,1724,Richard 5/16.2.1725,Richard 7 Dec /24.2.1727,Prudence 26 Feb /12 Mar 1728,Sarah 11/17.4 1730,Thomas 7/28.7.1731,Sarah 25 Apr/10.5.1734,Martha 1/12.8.1737,Mary 15 Dec 1739/19.4.1740

But it looks like there are two John Pateys
John married Sarah Johns 26.12.1720 and
John married Martha Hill 12.5.1717
So yours must be the son of John and Martha but some of those siblings will be the other couple.

Your John senior died 1746/7 leaving a Will for his widow Martha in 1747.He was a healmaker.
Burial 2.7.1746.
It looks like Martha remarried 28th Oct 1752 to Richard May at Tiverton
She was buried 26.3.1758.

That's all I have
