    Notes 
    • Richard MOORE was most likely the son of James MOORE and Margaret PALMER of Bradworthy, Devon. (Personal communication) Based on the information left to us by Lauretta BROOKS, he was married twice and had many children. I believe I have located his first wife, Grace ELLIOTT, whom he married in 1809 in Sutcombe, Devon, a village close to Bradworthy. It would appear after the marriage they moved back to Bradworthy; there are baptisms for six children born to Richard and Grace between 1809 and 1819. Of these six, there are burials for four, followed by a burial of his wife, Grace, in 1823, all in Bradworthy. One who did survive was James MOORE, baptized in 1813. I have found James, married, in Clovelly, Devon. In the 1841 census his wife appeared with their first child along with a Grace ELLIOTT, age 10, in the home. Her presence increases the likelihood that we have the correct James MOORE; very possibly James' mother had brothers; this child, possibly being his niece. No marriage certificate for this James MOORE has been located yet.

      The marriage of Richard MOORE and Sarah WAKE has not yet been found. 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. No baptisms have been found for the children born to Richard and Sarah prior to their immigration to Canada. (Anne Brooks) [3]
