William Morrell. Devon.
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 01:40 GMT (UK) »
I'm hoping for clarification on the marriage of William Morrell. He was born in Tiverton, Devon abt 1803.
Parents William Morrell 1780-  and Sarah Doble. They married 25 Dec 1800.
William Jnr either married Mary Pring in Silverton, Devon 18 Feb 1822 where he was listed as a labourer or Mary Pope on 15 Jun 1826 in Tiverton Devon where he was listed as a tailor.
In all census entries his occupation is Tailor.
I believe he died in 1892.
On the 1881 census he is a widower and I have a death entry for Mary Morrell for 1881.
I have marriage entries for both Mary Pope and Mary Pring.
Hoping someone can finally clear up the mystery.
Thanks.

From the evidence in the sources, I believe the correct wife is MARY POPE.
Census has the wife Mary born 1806 Tiverton. So if it was Mary Pring that would mean she married in 1822 - extremely young, and unlikely. (Your William would also be under age in 1822.)
The 1822 marriage has both bride and Groom being from Silverton, not Tiverton - so this is incorrect.
Also the occupation of William as a tailor matches marriage in 1826 and all census information.
The place of marriage (Tiverton), and Mary’s birthplace (Tiverton) and she is of Tiverton Parish in the 1826 marriage record, and the place of abode for the married couple in census data (Tiverton) also supports the wife as being Mary Pope.

Baptism for Mary Pope in Calverleigh/ Tiverton in 1806 to parents William and Grace
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QLZL-NPG2

In the 1841 census Grace Pope has a grand-daughter Caroline Morrell with her, which explains why Caroline is not with her parents.

This family connection from Pope to Morrell confirms the correct wife for William is Mary Pope. Thus your mystery is solved.

Death rego for Grace Pope in mid 1844 in Tiverton
