I am a new member in the U.S. searching for information on William Wright and family in Devon. What little I know is that he said he was born in Devonport between 1800-1802, went to sea at age 11, served in the Royal Navy, and ended up in Milford Haven, Wales. He married Sarah Child in Steyton Parish, Wales in 1822, worked as a seaman from there, was part of the Quarantine Service (probably in Wales), and lived in Milford with wife Sarah and children until his death in 1857.
I am new to Devon records and could use some help because I haven't gotten very far on my own. Thank you in advance.
