    • When she was aged just about 8 Elizabeth lost both of her parents, one dying in May, the other in June. One of her 6 siblings had died the previous year, the others (if still living) were aged from 1 to 15.

      I wonder what happened to the family?

    • From DFHS index of PR entries (on FMP, viewed 1 May 2013)

      Shows Elizabeth Merrifield, of Lillipeek [Lillipit] - just south of Milton Combe, Milton being where Elizabeth's son died (and may have spent his working life) and where her grandson and possibly most of her family lived.
      Crucially, the burial entry shows her as aged 76, i.e. suggesting she was born about 1738-9, and so tying in with the age suggested by her baptism.

    Family 2 Peter MEREFIELD,   d. Yes, date unknown 
    Married 24 Apr 1769  St. Mary’s Church, Sampford Spiney, 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 
    • From DFHS index of PR entries (on FMP, viewed 1 May 2013) and on Dartmoor Press CD
      Merefield, Peter to Jutsham, Elizabeth; DP info shows both were sojourners of the parish rather than longer-term residents.
      Not only was Justham (including variants) not a common surname, but the burial of an 'Elizabeth Merrifield' back in Buckland Monachorum ties in with this Elizabeth (she was the right age, and living in the same part of the parish as her son and grandson lived in), adding weight to my suggestion that this was her marriage. 

      No children found of this marriage - looking at baptisms in Devon, surname beginning Mer*, as on FMP on 1 May 2013. Also none on DP 'M' CD.
