      That link didn't work for me. Will look more closely later.

      My Stookes certainly originated in Ashton, as the earliest ones were all
      there. But I haven't been able to find connections with Widecombe and
      Christow ones, even though the latter were quite close.

      Here is a list of Ashton Stooke baptisms:

      Stooke, John Bapt: 3-Aug-1592
      Stooke, Mary Bapt: 16-Sep-1686
      Stooke, John Bapt: 27-Dec-1687
      Stooke, William Bapt: 23-Feb-1692,
      1691/2 OS
      Stooke, Ann Bapt: 22-Apr-1729
      Stooke, George Bapt: 18-Mar-1733
      Stooke, Mary Bapt: 18-Jul-1733
      Stooke, Thomas Bapt: 28-Dec-1734
      Stooke, James Bapt: 22-Sep-1736
      Stooke, Elizabeth Bapt: 31-Mar-1738
      Stooke, James Bapt: 2-Feb-1740,
      1739/40 OS
      Stooke, Thomas Bapt: 19-Oct-1742
      Stooke, George Bapt: 2-Feb-1745,
      1744/5 OS
      Stooke, Martha Bapt: 12-Dec-1746
      Stooke, Francis Bapt: 6-Oct-1748
      Stooke, Grace Bapt: 12-Jun-1750
      Stooke, Thomas Bapt: 1-Oct-1767
      Stooke, Elizabeth Bapt: 14-May-1769
      Stooke, James Bapt: 1-Mar-1771
      Stooke, Mary Bapt: 30-Dec-1773
      Stooke, John Bapt: Nov-1774
      Stooke, Thomas Bapt: 3-Aug-1775
      Stooke, John Bapt: 8-Jun-1777
      Stooke, Francis Bapt: 31-Jan-1786
      Stooke, Simon Smallridge Bapt: 4-May-1788
      Stooke, Edmund Bapt: 24-Oct-1790
      Stooke, George Bapt: 7-Apr-1793
      Stooke, Ann Bapt: 29-Sep-1795

      I'll need to check that further.

      > According to the 1838 Tithe Apportionment Records on the same page, a John

      I think that because many of them lived between Ashton and Trusham they may
      have taken their kids to be baptised in either place, as the mood took them.

      I've found some Stookes in Bovey Tracey, but none that connect to those.
