Family2: 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.

Miscellaneous

  • 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
