So - was Mary a sibling ?   or a cousin ?
Mary Phare
Baptized 23 June 1822 (Sunday) - Sourton, Devon, England, United Kingdom
Married in 1847, Pictou, Nova Scotia, Canada, to Cornelius Dwyer 1818-
reading the posts - Mary is not mentioned as a sibling when John dies - so probably a daughter of Johns brother in Sourton - would be interesting to find out though  :)

There are two baptisms recorded on Familysearch
Baptism: 9 July 1820.  Maria Phare (transcribed as Phase), daughter of John and Agness Phase at Sourton, Devon.
Baptism: 23 June 1822.  Mary Phase (transcribed as Phear), daughter of John and Agnes Phear at Sourton, Devon

Also a marriage of Elizabeth Phare to Montgomery Harper in Pictou in 1872.  John and Agnes Phare are noted as parents and Cornelius Dwyer as a witness

Do you have any documentation of their voyage to Canada


Staffordshire: Lawton Probyn Horrobin
Durham: Bamlett Hardman Winship Robinson
Suffolk: Leggett

To add to the 2 baptisms, John Phare's occupation in each is given as "Yeoman". Following the 1820 marriage I can only see the baptisms of Maria and Mary.
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
