Hi Ian,
Finding it a bit difficult to negotiate this site.
Name I am researching is WALTERS (Jane) who married in 1842 in Buckfastleigh a William Churchward.  When Jane married she had a young daughter who it would seem William adopted.  This daughter was called Sophia Walters born 1840 but there is no name of actual Father anywhere (even on Sophia's wedding certificate).  I would like to get a bit further back in Jane's family.  I believe her father may have been called Philip (on Jane and William's marriage certificate) but I have no date of birth for him, or even a place of birth.  Moretonhamstead seems to have been Jane Walter's place of birth.  The word "horsebreaker" please read "housemaid" !!!   The copy marriage certificate I sent for recently is very difficult to read.... I think the photocopy machine must have been playing up.
Sorry but although I have been doing family research for a number of years it is very new for me using a computer.  I am a member of Ancestery.co.uk, but folks told me that this site is very informatative.   ::)  Regards  Pam

Can't see a Jane Walters in Moretonhampstead, in fact searching their PR's only throws up 1 Walters Baptism there & that was early 1700's.
However there's this one about 7mls. up the road:
Jane Walter
ch:12 January 1812 THROWLEIGH,DEVON
father: Phillip Walter
mother: Jane
These are all of them;
Thomasin Walter
ch: 8 April 1798
 
Elizabeth Walter
ch: 18 April 1802

Philip Walter
ch: 25 March 1804

Thomas Walter
ch: 12 October 1806

Joseph Walter
ch: 22 October 1809

Jane Walter
ch: 12 January 1812

Keziah Walter
ch: 15 May 1814
 
Ann Walter
ch: 2 January 1820

Marr:
Phillip Walter = Jane Dunning
12 Oct. 1795 Throwleigh Devon
