Hello to all, I would be very grateful to find the parentage of a Lawrence Ashton b. 1708 in Bradworthy, but passed away in 1764 in either Kilkhampton, Cornwall or Sutcombe, Devon. Thank you for any reply. Kind regard's, from Carole. 😀
Have you looked for him under variable spellings? Do you know when he married? There is a baptism of a Lawrance Aishton or Aiston in 1736, father Samuel, if he was getting married and had not been baptised as a child, then might have ben "done" then! daughter Elizabeth baptised 1739 with spelling of Ashdon. Lawrence listed as living at Sutcombe in 1760 on national archives site, as a yeoman. Hope this helps.
Hiya, Judith, the Lawrence Ashton I have DID get married in 1736 to a Grace Cornish in Morwenstow, Cornwall. I had him as being born in Bradworthy, Devon. Then passed in either Kilkhampton, Cornwall or Sutcombe. I will look into Samuel, thank's again. Best wishe's, from Carole.
