Research Notes

  • Research note 01: A Grace Parminter LOCK died in Barnstaple Jun qtr 1851. A Grace P, born c1782 in West Down, was with William LOCK aged 68 born in Parracombe, son William aged 31, daughter Elizabeth aged 33, and 3 young farm workers. William was farming 100 acres in East Bodley. Same family in 1841 had extra children Mary and Thomas..
  • Research note 02: Max CHUGG has a marriage to RIDD. This marriage is in IGI, 15th July 1826 in East DOWN, no parental details, groom's name is Richard.
    * A Grace RIDD aged 86 (which matches Grace's birth/age) died in Marwood in 1866, and is buried in St Peter's, Bratton Fleming. This Grace, a widow, said she was born in Berrynarbor in the 1861 census. She is living as a visitor with Thomas CARDER, who has his mother with him. A Mary aged 84 who is blind. In 1851 this Grace is with her husband William, a farmer. Working on the farm is Philip HUXTABLE aged 18. They are living in Bratton Fleming. In 1841 Grace and William are in Broad Oak, Combe Martin with 4 daughters and a son. I have not found this marriage, so I have no idea of this Grace's family name..
  • Research note 03: One Grace CHUGG married Richard RIDD. From the 1851 census, you could infer that Richard's mother was Ann RIDD, as this woman was with 2 of the children in 1841, and is living next door them (one now married) in 1851. The family would be

    Ann married unknown RIDD b 1808. Had at least one child, Richard born I not not when, but before 1808.

    Richard married Grace CHUGG in 1826, and had at least 3 children :
    Ann 1828 Challacombe - father a yeoman
    Richard 1827 Challacombe - father a yeoman
    William 1830 Challacombe - father a yeoman

    1851 census had Ann b1872 in Goodleigh, widow living alone, husband was a farmer. Schedule 29, Home place, Challacombe

    Schedule 26 had George b 1804 and his wife Mary b 1809, both in Challacombe. They are in the db already

    Schedule 30 is Ann's 2 grandsons Richard and William. Richard is married and he has a 2 month old son. From free bmd wife is Julia MAYNE, and they married in Bristol Julia was born in West Down, and they are working a 63 acre farm. William is unmarried and is a currier.

    Schedule 31 is Humphrey RIDD b 1806 in Challacombe, and his wife Mary Ann. With them are 2 sons aged 21 and 18. The younger is deaf and they were both born in Challacombe. On the next page, but in the same family are 4 more children aged 10 to 1 month.

    Note that there is NO confirmation in all this that the Grace who married Richard is 'ours'..
