This is the only near miss I can see - nothing else fits and it could be a mistake on the part of the enumerator when writing out the original entry

It looks like Crocker but......................


1861


Cottage, Stokenham Devon



William Crocker Head 33 Fisherman born Beesands
Susan wife 29 Fisherman's wife born Slapton Devon
William son 6 born Beesands Devon
Peter son 3 born Beesands
Susan dau 1 born Beesands

RG9 1423 Folio 74 Page 9

This information ties in with his birth entry on FamilySearch where birthplace is given as Beesands, Kingsbridge Devon
