I have noted that a Sarah Bright was christened in Dolton in July 1882. Her parents were recorded as John Bright and Eliz.
I have trawled FMP, Ancestry, Family Search and SOG for a John Bright/Eliz marriage between 1750 & 1790, in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, but have failed to find a candidate record.
I have also scoured the DFHS Surname index with similar results.
I am aware of a 1742 marriage in Tiverton of a John Bright/ Elizabeth Mapledorum. However, I regard the birth to parents of 61 and 59 years to be somewhat unlikely.
I would be extremely grateful for any suggestions as to other sources to investigate.
