I am looking for details of Mary Ann or Miriam TUCKER who was born Dodbrook 1859 and died 1895 Southpool South Devon. She was the first wife of Thomas Harris WINZER b 1857 and they married KINGSBRIDGE 1878. There were several children ,Robert 1879,Alice 1880 then my g gran Florence 1884, Edward b 1885c and then Edith 1889. After Mary or Miriam's death Thomas remarried in 1896 to Elizabeth Ellen Head who had a previous marriage to Alfred DAWKINS.Elizabeth promptly changed the surname to WINSOR saying that WINZER was too common ! Elizabeth and Thomas had five more children Walter 1889,Frances 1896, Lillian 1900 and Thomas 1902 - 1902 Any information re Miriam TUCKER ,the two marriages and children would be most welcome Than you

red mail Pinney and variant spellings
am researching William and Mary (Downing) Pinhay who had their children christened at Dodbrooke between 1810 and 1827. The abodes noted in the christenings were Goveton and Sherford. At the same time Richard and Sarah Pinhay were having children christened at Dodbrooke. As the naming pattern and given names were similar it raises the question is there a family connection. Is anyone researching either of these families?
