William son of De(or i)gory Marin was baptised Hatherleigh 27th August 1721. (I do however have an IGI individual record (which I took in 2007) for the baptism which says the surname of both William and his father, Digory, was "Murin")
Digory (then said to be Martin!)married Mrs Ann Rowse 8th April 1716 @ Hatherleigh. They had several children, including William.
I actually have 2 queries. First, when was Digory baptised, I have seen several dates by others claiming it was in the 1690's, but have searched the Hatherleigh Registers from the 1680's without any success. My second query relates to William. From subsequent Hatherleigh baptisms it appears he had married a "Mary" but "Mary" who ?? and when?.
William & Mary are said to be parents for John (1739), Thomasin (1741), Mary (1744), Edward (1747), Tamsend (?) and Joan (1750). So I presume the marriage would have been earlier than 1739.
Long time ago well before Census years and civil BMD records, so much is likely to be guesswork (like perhaps the surname was orginally Martin), but if anyone has any ideas I will research anything which seems possible.
