    • Samuel Spurrill otp and Patty Reed of the parish of Sheepstor, no additional info. (from Banns / marriages register, image on FMP, viewed 18 Aug 2012)

    • PR with combined banns / marriage entry - shows banns unusually (in my experience) being read at 3 weekly intervals - because in this tiny place, which was not then a parish in its own right, there was only a service every 3 weeks.
      No info. given as to marital status etc.

    Married 22 Apr 1772  St. Leonard’s Church, Sheepstor, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • The marriage part of the combined banns / marriage entry shows that Samuel and Patty both made their marks, while Alice Reed and Peter Reed Junr. (both appear to be siblings of Patty's) signed. It would seem strange if they could write and Patty couldn't - but Samuel seems to have signed plenty of documents in Sheepstor, so I guess both could write but didn't on this occasion.
