After the one in 1841, the water gets muddied because of all the Johns in the family, immediately confused by 2 deaths registered in Okehampton R.D. One in 1925 was for one who was 69 when he died, so born abt. 1856 so wouldn't seem to fit either of the Johns in 1841(there were 2 in that same family). There is no death indication of the age for the other, though it was registered in 1856 so might have some relevance to one of those Johns. I'll have to get the Death Certificates to see if they help as I feel I need to sort out who they were to understand if either was the John in 1841. There are others in later Census years and I have details for them - John, John E. John Emmanuel and Emmanuel who might be all the same one - or not. The bames of John E. and John Emmanuel feature variously in those living in Meeth in 1891, 1901 and 1911 and if the one you found at Giffords Hele, Meeth is one of these, I can say from what I already know that it might be that they had no close relationship to Richard.
A lot more research is needed so continue to keep your eyes on the Message Board, as if anything comes up, I'll let you know.
