Re: Clutching at straws
The William who married Agnes at South Brent in 1804 was in the North Devon Militia. His baptism in Broadhembury gives the surname of Auton which it could be on the marriage too. The marriage is indexed as Anton although it could be Auton. As both made their mark they wouldn't have known if it was wrong.
