Look Up Request: parents of Richard PROVO
« on: Friday 13 May 16 20:32 BST (UK) »
Born around 1763, in Stoke Damerel. He married a Margaret Yeo, also from Devon on 06 June 1778 at Stoke Damerel Church and possibly had a son, Leonard Yeo Provo, in 1783.

I can't seem to find anything about his parents at all.  :-\ Thanks in advance   :)

You can see the full marriage entry via the DFHS - they can provide a copy of the register. Witnesses' names may be a clue. He can't have been born ca 1763 and married in 1778. There is a burial for a 47 year old Richard in 1799 so born 1752 ish. There are 2 Richard PROVOs shown here http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/DEV/Plymouth/PlymouthArtificers/PlymouthArtificers1779-119

Thanks! I thought maybe he married when he was 16 or so and that the birth date was maybe a few years out. Thanks again
