William Burgin/Burgoyne/Burgoine/Burgoin - Stokenham, Devon
« on: Tuesday 07 May 19 15:08 BST (UK) »
Hello
Looking to trace a William Burgin father of Samuel (spelt Samewell). Samuel at some point migrated to Heanor in Derbyshire,
Samuel's baptism transcription gives date as 16.02.1726 - Anglican.
Parents are named as William and Anne.  Samuel's baptism took place in Stokenham, Devon, so rightly or wrongly I have made an assumption that Samuel's parents; or certainly one of them will come from around Stokenham.
Then;
I came across a William Burgin and Anne Standford who were married on 6th Feb 1720 at St Giles, Cripplegate, London.  Anne Standford was bap 8th July 1698 at Southwick, Hampshire but London/Southwick seems a long way from Stokenham!! and I have no evidence to tie all of them together as a family.
I believe that William and Anne had 10 children (including Samuel) the youngest being
Thomas Burgain 12.04.1741 all of which baptised in Stokenham.  As I have progressed the name has changed from Burgoyne to Burgin with many other spellings in between.

I have copies of St Michael and All Angels baptisms at Stokenham 1725-1812 which covers most of the children.  I also have a copy of the Oath-takers and tax-payers in Georgian Stokenham plus Stokeham Milita which names a "Will" Burgin.

Could there be another William and Anne around the same time that married in the Devon area?

Is anyone able to help please.

Thank you

A William BURGIN married a Mary LYE at Stokenham in 1697. A William BURGAINE married an Anne GOODEARE at Sherford in 1720/21. Sherford is about 2 miles from Stokenham.

Hi
There is a PCC Will for a William Burgin 1759 of Stockingham Devon.
I think Stockingham is a misspelling of Stockenham.
Unfortunately it leaves his estate to his wife and children,grandchildren with no names.
Very helpful!
William Burgoin buried 22 Aug 1758.Stokenham

ps there is also a Samuel Burgin/Burgoine having children Anne and John in 1663.
