Torcross, Stokenham, Devon, England



 


Notes:

Torcross is a newish place; it celebrated 400 years of existence in 2002, an event marked at the time by an exhibition in the Chapel, and permanently by a book "400 Years in Torcross: 1602 - 2002, A Pictorial History" by Robin Rose-Price and Clare Pawley, (ISBN 1 898964 52 1). In 2009 I bought a copy in the shop in Torcross where it may still be available (£12.95).It is in the parish of Stokenham; many, probably most inhabitants will have been baptised, married and buried at the Parish…

Mary, Susan and Kezia Pike
The three sisters were included in this drawing of 1835 by W. H. Way (Royal Academy artist) who used to stay in the village.
I think they must be Kezia (born 1829 i.e. aged about 6) sitting, on the left, Susan (born 1821 - aged about 14) standing and Mary (born 1816, aged about 19) kneeling on the right.
