  • Name Dorothy SYMONS 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born 10 Mar 1717/18  Blackawton, 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 
    • I know of no good evidence to show that Dorothy Symons from Blackawton was the one who married John Trant in East Allington, and given the surname being quite a common one it could be chance, but it seems to me likely:
      (1) East Allington and Blackawton are close to each other, sharing (at that time) a small section of parish boundary (see 1851 boundaries map).
      (2) There is no futher sign of Dorothy in Blackawton
      (3) There is no earlier sign of Symons [S(i/y)m(m)on(d)s] in East Allington - i.e. no baptisms from 1641 with the name, judging by the transcribed data on the South Hams wesbite (as at 13 Mar 2016).
      (4) The age of the Dorothy from Blackawton makes her a good candidate to be the one who married John (at age 23) and have their children (at age 23 - 41)

    • From transcribed data on South Hams website (viewed 12 Mar 2016)
      Shown as 1741 and says date converted to NS.
      Assuming this is correct it is unlikely the John Trant baptised in 1740 was the son of this couple, unless an error was made in when he was baptised.
