The 1861 census on FreeCEN shows only two Richard Notts in Barnstaple, one being a blacksmith and the other being a clergyman. You know that the Richard Nott to whom the freedom of the borough was granted in 1850 was a blacksmith. I would have thought that it's a safe bet that he is the same person as the blacksmith who appears in the census. It just remains to trace your ancestry to the blacksmith's family.
