      Hi Martin, this introductory message seems to have got lost on my computer,
      so I'm only replying to it now.

      I don't seem to have much on that branch of Stookes. Is there any possibility wou could send me a Gedcom of what you have there that I could add to my Stooke "one name" database?

      > William Stooke (born Lustleigh 1804) was the son of Joseph Stooke (born

      I have some Stookes in Bovey Tracey, but no Joseph.

      In the mean time, I have found this Possible Marriage
      Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
      Marriages Dec 1846 (>99%)
      Beavis William Chard 10 559
      Brown Samuel Chard 10 559
      Chick Sarah Chard 10 559
      Hebdon Emma Chard 10 559
      Hicks James Chard 10 559
      Mudford Samuel Chard 10 559
      Stooke Anne Chard 10 559

      of course there is only a 1 in 3 chance that William Beavis married Anne
      Stooke, and I'll try to follow it up, but I thought it might be of interest
      to you on both counts.
