    • 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)
    Children 6 children

    • "William Light marr Joan Toop of Shitstor" - due to the link with Sheeepstor it seems probable it was either this William, or that his father had been widowed and was remarrying.

      Baptism of Joan doesn't help much - could still have been either. But it seems more likely it was this younger William.
