Exeter, Devon, England-THOMAS WALKER b. 1491/ALICE MUTTLEBURY b. 1492
« on: Wednesday 07 November 18 02:05 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information On the marriage of Thomas Walker and Alice Muttlebury from Exeter, Devon, Eng.
Info I would like if found:
1. Did Thomas Walker and Alice Muttlebury get married?
2. What was the date of the marriage?
3. How many children were there? Names?
 
I see other Ancestry trees stating that Alice Muttlebury married a John Smythe and named the child Thomas Walker. Sounds unbelievable to change surnames from one generation to next, but not impossible knowing the origin of the WALKER surname. I have a date of birth/death for Thomas Walker of (1491-1540) I would also like to know about any siblings if possible. I am just trying to keep my Father in Laws tree lineage from having mistakes.

Thank You
Julie

Hi Julie,
I would love to know what paper work exists, for ordinary people, that gives birth and death or baptism/burial dates from the 15 century?

I know there is plenty of recorded information for gentry and royalty but......
Rowse in Brixham, Tenby, Hull & Ramsgate. Strongman, in Falmouth. Champion. Coke. Eame/s. Gibbons. Passmore. Pulsever. Sparkes in Brixham & Ramsgate. Toms in Cornwall. Waymoth. Wyatt.

As so often, the Ancestry trees range from dubious to ludicrous. None quotes any relevant sources, as far as I can see.

There is one secondary source for the pairing with John Smith. Burke's Peerage refers to them as the parents of a Nicholas Smith, died 1596. No other children, no dates.

I can see no evidence at all for a marriage with Thomas Walker,
