    • Seems likely this burial was this William, though could have been his son. 

      Not
      one of the Lights shown in the FMP index as buried in Walkhampton on 26 Oct 1765 as the PR shows they were both infants (and part of the page is missing - I can't see their Christian names)
    Notes 
    • (Research):Lights in Sheepstor
      1696 - a Richard son of Thomas was bapt
      1707? - Thomas was bur

      - was Wm a son of Thomas? (If he was the son of Thomas why did he call his 1st son John - not his name nor his father-in-laws)

      A Richard Light was paid for work on the church at various times spanning 1725 - 1762  so it would appear that it was Richard, son of Thomas, who did the work and not Richard, son of this William.

    • From PR image (viewed 21 Aug 2012):
      Under 1707 Marriages - "William Light and Mary Barter were married Octr. 28th"

      A Wm Light and a Richard Light appear and marry in Buckland Monachorum in 1743 and 1744 - 2 of the sons of Wm and Mary? - it would seem quite likely.
      (There were quite a few Leighes in Buckland in the C17th but a gap of a few years - it may be that Williams family were from Buckland Monachorum a generation of 2 back)
