Mary Winn married Samuel Stafford in Aug. 1813 at St Andrews Plymouth. Mary Winn is recorded as being a widow.
I have found only one instance of a Mr Winn marrying a Mary in Devon in the relevant period.
Christopher Winn married Mary Clinnick in Aug. 1802 at Exeter, St Thomas the Apostle. Mary Clinnick was born in Cornwall on the 'correct' date of 1786 to William & Grace.
To be a valid first marriage, Christopher must have expired between 1802 and 1813. However, I have been unable to find such a death, in Devon or in fact anywhere.
Any suggestions to another approach to solving this knotty problem would be much appreciated.
