Looking for a Samuel Burgin born about 1726.  Not sure if Duffield or Heanor in Derbyshire.
Spelling of Burgin can be quite varied.

I have found a Samewell Burgin married a Sarah Needham on 4th May 1753 in Duffield,
There appears to be 2 x William Burgins about the same time with parents Samuel (spelt in various ways) and Sarah:

William Burgin bap 31.10.1756 (presbyterian or unitarian) of Duffield
William Burgin bap 12.10.1756 of St Laurence, Heanor
suggesting that there are two Samuel and Sarah's, but cannot find any info for Heanor couple.
Can anyone help at all?
Thank  you

Looking to trace a William Burgin father of Samuel (spelt Samewell). Samuel at some point migrated to Heanor in Derbyshire,
Samuel's baptism transcription gives date as 16.02.1726 - Anglican.
Parents are named as William and Anne.  Samuel's baptism took place in Stokenham, Devon, so rightly or wrongly I have made an assumption that Samuel's parents; or certainly one of them will come from around Stokenham.
I came across a William Burgin and Anne Standford who were married on 6th Feb 1720 at St Giles, Cripplegate, London.  Anne Standford was bap 8th July 1698 at Southwick, Hampshire but London/Southwick seems a long way from Stokenham!! and I have no evidence to tie all of them together as a family.
I believe that William and Anne had 10 children (including Samuel) the youngest being
Thomas Burgain 12.04.1741 all of which baptised in Stokenham.  As I have progressed the name has changed from Burgoyne to Burgin with many other spellings in between.

I have copies of St Michael and All Angels baptisms at Stokenham 1725-1812 which covers most of the children.  I also have a copy of the Oath-takers and tax-payers in Georgian Stokenham plus Stokeham Milita which names a "Will" Burgin.

Could there be another William and Anne around the same time that married in the Devon area?

Is anyone able to help please.

Thank you

Looking to find information on a William Burgin, think he was born around 1700 in area of Stokenham, Devon.  Believe he had a number of children, one being Samuel Burgin bap 16.02.1727 in Stokenham.
At some point he and his family migrated to Heanor in Derbyshire. 

My initial ancestor had the name Burgoyne, but there are various spellings of the name as I have worked through various records.
Any help or information would be appreciated.
