Family 1: George and Margaret Clarke

George 1603 is the son of Thomas and Mary Piper and the grandson of John and Frances Lamerton. He marries Grace Lamerton in 1633. Grace dies in 1634 and in 1653 George remarries, to Margaret Clarke in Marhamchurch.

[It is possible that George is George 1612, the son of William and Johan Lamerton and the grandson of John Uglow and Elizabeth Uglow. Also these two marriages might be separate - George 1603 marrying Grace and George 1612 marrying Margaret. Dallas Manicom's entry on Rootsweb adopts the George 1603 solution ]

  • son George 1660 born in Launcells. He marries Martha Rowland in Launcells in 1683 - Family 1a
  • son John 1661 - probably does not survive
  • daughter 1664 born in Launcells but died in infancy
  • son Thomas - he marries Grace Bryant in Launcells in 1695. He dies in 1739 - he was a tanner in Stratton - Family 8
  • daughter Amy or Avis - she marries Gamaliel Sleeman in Launcells in 1688. They have a daughter, Agnes, born in Holsworthy in 1691. Gamaliel himself was the son of Gamaliel and Agnes, born in 1648 in Holsworthy.
  • daughter Hannah - she marries William Rundel in Launcells in 1690

The existence of four of the siblings is derived from two scraps of evidence - firstly the will of Thomas and secondly a Launcells connection. Charlou Dolan has transcribed this will: Thomas mentions his wife, Grace and his brother George. We have a marriage for Thomas to Grace Bryant, also in Launcells. We have a George 1660 born in Launcells, just right to be a brother of Thomas. There are also two sisters mentioned, Avis? Sleeman and Hannah 'Tremble'. These look very similar to Amy and Hannah, for whom we have dates of marriages, both in Launcells.

Family 1a: George and Martha Rowland

George 1660 is the son of George and Margaret Clarke.

[It is possible that this is George 1653 the son of Jasper and Mary Sheere in Holsworthy and the grandson of William and Johan from Marhamchurch but George 1660 is born and dies in Launcells - it is likely that he marries there as well...]

George marries Martha Rowland in Launcells in 1683. In 1693 on 28th August, Hugh Mill of Sutcombe, gentleman and Elizabeth, his wife, leases property  in Launcells Broadpark to George Uglow of Launcells, yeoman. George dies in 1736.

  • daughter Martha 1684 born in Launcells. She marries  Richard Rayly or Bayly in 1714 in  Launcells. She dies in 1735 in the village. 
  • son John 1689  born in Launcells. John dies in 1774 in Stratton
  • son George 1693 born in Launcells. He marries Jane Uglow - Family 1b
  • daughter Margaret 1695 born in Launcells. She marries John Bryant in  1729 in Launcells (but see Margtt 1695 from Marhamchurch)
  • son Thomas 1701  born in Launcells. He dies in 1715 in the village. 

Family 1b: George and Jane Uglow

George 1693 is the son of George and Martha Rowland and the grandson of George and Margaret Clarke.

In 1727 George married a cousin, Jane Uglow 1693, the daughter of Thomas and Ann - Marhamchurch Family 8a.

Jane's brother, John, dies in 1736 and mentions Jane and her two children. We know from John 1921 that the uncles and aunts of the children include Thomas, John, Martha Old, Mary Hobbs, Elizabeth Bryant who must be brothers and sisters of George and Jane.

Jane dies, aged 53, in 1746 and is buried in Launcells. George dies in 1756

  • son George 1729 born in Launcells. He dies, unmarried, in 1763
  • son John 1731  born in Launcells. He dies young in 1742
