Marriage 17th September 1822 Ilsington Devon.
Children baptised Ilsington
Samuel Tickell 5/10/1823 Robert Coysh Tickell 2/10/1825 and Joseph 25/12/1827.

Sometime after 1827 but before 1841 Samuel 1799 die's and Sarah Marrys William Gale born c1783 Tormoham Devon who is a farmer.

All census Tormoham Devon.
1841 William & Sarah together
1851 Sarah with Samuel , William with Joseph
1861 William with Samuel as a widower age 78.

Looking for the death of Samuel 1799 , Marriage of Sarah and William and anything at all on Robert Coysh Tickell.

Thank you

A google result gives this which you may already have seen?

There is no mention of 'Tickell' but probably ties in with the Coysh (Quoshe) side of the family somewhere. Using a surname as a middle name usually implies a maiden name some where further back.

Do you know an Ian Full? He made a post about Samuel Tickell born 7 April 1799 Bovey Tracey. He has Samuel marrying a Jane Tarring in the 1800s.

Re the Ian Full's post - its easy to get multiple Samuel's muddled up!

Pity you haven't been able to find Sarah's 2nd marriage, assuming she did. Even if it was prior to civil registration, the names of witnesses might have given a clue to William Gale

There are 2 more children baptised to a Samuel Tickell and Sarah.
Sarah 25/2/1830 and Mary 16/3/1832 at Hen St Baptist Bovey Tracy.

Don't know if it's the same family or not.

May complicate this even more.

Both Bovey Tracy and Ilsingston are in the Deanery of Moreton. You might have to spring for a CD/book of burials to try to trace Samuel. If any of them have marriages in your time frame, that would be an added bonus.

Bovey Tracy Baptists has burials 1784-1837and Ilsington 1813-1838
