    Moore _ Wake marriage
    Richard MOORE, Widower, married to Sarah Wake, Spinster, 23 August 1825 at St. Mary's Church, Redcliffe, Bristol, Gloucestershire.

  • Notes  Married:
    • Lauretta Jane (Machon) BROOKS was a grand-daughter of Richard and Sarah MOORE. In her diary she wrote " In England, Hannah RAWLINS married a man named WAKE. Their daughter Sarah WAKE married Richard MOORE, a widower with a large family. His children were cared for by their mother's family and he and his second wife, Sarah WAKE, emigrated to Canada. To this union twelve children were born making in all twenty two sons and daughters he was father to. Their youngest, Mary Anne married John MACHON and had one daughter, Lauretta Jane, who married David BROOKS; their son Fred BROOKS married Constance BECK.

      The marriage of Richard MOORE and Sarah WAKE had not been found prior to 2020. The 1813-1837 Marriage Register Index was searched by the Devon Family History Society for all parishes in Devon without success, thereby increasing the likelihood that they married in a nonconformist church or outside of Devon. No baptisms have been found for the children born to Richard and Sarah prior to their immigration to Canada. (Anne Brooks)

      "Richard MOORE, Widower, married to Sarah WAKE, Spinster, both of this parish, by banns 23 August 1825 at St. Mary's Church, Redcliffe, Bristol. Entry 696".

      Acknowledging that Redcliffe is at least 86 miles from Bradworthy, and both bride and groom stated they were "of this parish", makes it somewhat suspect. Nevertheless, it is possible Richard left home for work sometime after the death of his last child and wife; perhaps Sarah was from the Redcliffe area. The fact that Richard was a widower, the correct time frame of the marriage, and the absolute scarcity of other possible marriages closer to Bradworthy, make this one a clear possibility. (Anne Brooks)
