Sarah Lewis and John Dyke [Dike]
« on: Saturday 20 February 21 01:59 GMT (UK) »
Hope someone can help here.

I'm trying to identify christenings for my ancestor John Dyke and Sarah Lewis who married in Taunton in 1733 by licence.

I don't know where John was from yet but I have found a possible candidate for Sarah:

Sarah Lewis christened 1716 Wincanton - daughter of Benjamin and Hannah

My only query is that Wincanton seems quite a distance away. Could this be the same Sarah or can anyone suggest candidates closer to Taunton that I should look at?

I've tried looking for Wills for the Lewis family but so far I've not come across anything that may help.

Many Thanks for any ideas

Matt

Thanks Colin

That James looks promising as Bishop Lydeard is only about 5 miles from Taunton. Somerton is about 19 miles from Taunton according to Google so may be a bit far out, but I'll keep it in mind.

Many Thanks

There are several Dyke/Dike baptisms in the right period at St Mary Magdalene church , Taunton-which is where John and Sarah married...including one transcribed as "Jo Dike" baptised 15 April 1706 s/o William and Mary of Fore Street, Taunton-William is a "Comber".

Many thanks for that. It's certainly a possibility. It looks like William Dyke married Mary Cabell at Taunton in 1701.

William and Mary also appear to have a daughter named Hannah.
