However John Quick married at Berry Pomeroy on 13th July 1788 to Elizabeth Narromore, widow of Berry Pomeroy. At marriage John was described of South Brent. Elizabeth had been born Quant in 1765. She had 2 surviving daughters from her first marriage.
John and Elizabeth had a daughter Elizabeth Quick baptised at Berry Pomeroy in 1788, then they moved to South Brent. The 2 Narromore girls were left in the care of grandparents.
At South Brent Mary Ann Quick was baptised 1791. Then 6 year old Elizabeth Quick died (1794) at South Brent. In 1795 John Quick jnr was baptised at South Brent but his mother did not survive many days after the birth.
I have a very detailed account of John Quick jnr's life (from a settlement examination) but would love to know a bit more about John Quick snr.
From the settlement examination, at sometime John Quick snr was an ag lab, working for John Crocker of East Allington.
