Is anyone else looking at the Perrys, and interested in swapping information, or who might have had more luck at linking up than me, please?

WHITCHURCH - marriage look-up request 1813-1815 - (Whitchurch - Devon)
Henry Seward (or Seaward) married Mary Wilkin (or Wilkins) somewhere around 1813-1815. Mary Wilkin(s) came from St. Agnes Cornwall. Father was a miner and the whole family moved up from Cornwall. I believe Mary married Henry Seward in Tavistock because their first three (known) children were baptised there, but later ones in Plymouth. SEWARD / WILKIN marriage is not on the 3-Towns CD which covers all Plymouth & Devonport marriages of this period, so should be in Tavistock area logically. If anyone has the transcribed records I'd be very glad of a look-up please. Thanks.
