Have been having further thoughts aboutColebrook, which is where Thomas says he was born. Its an area of Plymouth, and I think that is what he meant when he gave it as his birthplace. |
I found a marriage of William Tucker and Susanna Stone, at Plympton St mary. 1815, and think that Thomas was baptised at a non conformist church/chapel, as there was a rise in the non conformist church attendance at that time. You had to be married in parish church, but baptisms were allowed elsewhere.
If you haven't researched the non conformist church in Colebrook would suggest you do. Unfortunately as I have found, the record keeping is not so good with those churches. But if you are certain that William and Susannah are his parents, (not sure how you found out her name), then just accept the marriage, assume the baptism, as it comes into the following year, and ties up with age given on the later census',
Hope this has helped. good luck _
