Richard and Elizabeth Worden
Richard marries Elizabeth
Worden in Boyton in 1755. There is a suggestion that he is the son of
Thomas and Elizabeth Bligh in Poundstock
- certainly there is a contemporary, Thomas Uglow, who marries Mary Worden
in Poundstock and who may be Richard's brother.
- son Richard 1762 is born
in Boyton - he dies in 1801. In his will, he describes himself as a
yeoman and mentions his sister, Mary Dart of Werrington. But there is
no sign that Richard is married himself and he appears to leave his
property in trust for Richard Samble, son of William.
- daughter Mary who marries
John Dart in 1780 in Launceston - both are described as sojourners.
- back to the Uglow homepage
- Mary marries Thomas Piers
in the village in 1638 - this may be Mary
1607 from Marhamchurch
- Mary 1846, born in Moriceton,
Devonport, is a servant in the village at the time of the 1871 census
