Brice family of Mamhead
« on: Sunday 06 July 14 05:09 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find more info on the Brice family
A Thomas Brice born around 1732 Mamhead and died 1811 Mamhead
married a Grace Hooper 1760 Mamhead
They had 8 children my husband descending from Ann Brice Christened 1778
Ann married a William Dey christened 1777 in Ide or Mamhead, Devon
Ann Brice died in 1844 Ide
on the 1841 census list's Ann's occupation as independent
I found her father Thomas was a printer by trade
so wondering how Ann came or how she had money?
William Dey the father of William Dey would have been born around the early 1700's and he died 1784 and married a Mary Hooper in 1772 Kenn, Devon
Was the money from the Dey's?
Ann Brice's husband William Dey junior died 1836
could the money be from his side?
At the moment I'm trying to find info about the Brices and Hoopers
Had a look at the IGI
Didn't find a Thomas around 1732 but did find 2
Thomas Brice 5.10.1726 st Mary's,  Exeter to a Thomas and Catherine
Thomas Brice 2 christened 1.1.1740 Tiverton to a John
At the monent I'm not sure either those Thomas's are my One at present

Thank you will take a look.
Thomas Brice was not the printer one he married an Elizabeth.
He is not the st Mary's one either he married an Elizabeth also.
The Tiverton one also not him.
Hope these sites help
