Didn't know the children were baptised in Milton Abbott living at Metherell (where Elizabeth's father [Richard] was living in the 1901, 1891, & 1881 census years). Have looked at FMP but despite simply putting in a Search in the name Richard Bentley (or Murrain) right through various options to browsing (the over 1000 entries) the Devon Parish registers for circa 1897, cannot find anything. How did you search to find them ??
Was quite interested to find Josling - even more so that his second christian name was Richard. Set my brain on overdrive as to what the (even remote) implications of what this (yet another Richard) might possibly suggest !!!!!.
