I am searching for a marriage between John Parnell and Martha Douse(Doust). I have browsed through parish registers on Find my past and Ancestry with no luck.They may have met in Paignton as they are on the 1861 census separately.I next find them in Wolborough in 1871 census,this states that they are married. Their only child John was baptised at Bovey Tracey April 1872. By 1881 Martha and her son John are working on a farm owed by William Bastow at Lower Brimley. Her Husband John being in the asylum at Exeter due to a fall from a horse.Martha gets baptised again Sept 1888 at Bovey Tracey, which states she is Parnell by marriage.I also have Johns birth cert which confirms Martha Parnell formally Doust as his mother.I have more info ,but does anyone have any suggestions on where else I can look please.
