Mary Pope Born January 1809 Coldridge John Hunt B 1791
« on: Saturday 25 February 17 15:02 GMT (UK) »
Looking for my 2nd great aunt Mary Pope B 1809 and her spouse John Hunt b 1791 location unknown

She was baptized January 31, 1809 Coldridge, Devon, U.K

Parents were

Thomas Pope  17841847
 
Grace Handcock 17821867

Both parents passed in Devon, UK

Mary married a John Hunt 22 October 1832 in Devon, possibly Ashringy  He was a widower and she was a spinster.  Believe her uncle John Handcock was a witness.  John was able to sign his name in perfect script while Mary was only able to make her mark. We have tried to find a first marriage for John Hunt without success and recent info seems to point to possible children from that first marriage

Mary and John Hunt came to Canada around 1850-51.  A possible match in 1851 census has too many children.  We would like to find possible children from a first marriage of Mr. Hunt and also his occupation

We believe they lived in or around Dorchester, Ontario. 

Their daughter Grace was born OCTOBER 11,1833  Ashreigney, Devon, England and her grave marker shows her as originally from Devon, as was her husband, John Bickley.  They married 9 Feb 1855 in Brushford, Devon.  He is listed as a Miller in the marriage document I have They are buried in Dorchester, Ontario.

Did they leave their daughter Grace behind in England?  She seems to be with other relatives.

You have posted in 'Devon' but state you are looking for the death of John & Mary Hunt who went to Canada 1850-51.  :-\

Sorry Rosie.  I should have edited the question to speak to the marriage and children.  OP has been edited.

Daughter Grace does seem to have stayed in England.  My info says she was with an aunt or uncle in Brushford in 1851.  Canadian documents list immigration year as 1857, after she married John Bickley
