    Notes 
    • The research on this Pope family supports the oral history that a rift occured, circa 1840, between some of the brothers and their father, John POPE, resulting in the rejection of their surname and the adoption of their mother's maiden name, CROCKER. Baptisms have been located for three of Richard's first five children; baptisms are under the name POPE. Of the next five children, beginning in 1864, four birth registrations have been located and they are all under the name CROCKER. He recorded his entire family under CROCKER in the censuses from 1851 onwards.

    • John POPE and Elizabeth CROCKER, both of this parish were married at Winkleigh Parish Church, by Banns this 25th day of December in the year one thousand and eight hundred and two, by me, John Clgt?, Vicar. Neither John nor Elizabeth could sign their names. Witness: John Po ??

      [There are three possible John POPE's who might have married Elizabeth CROCKER. This one, John, son of Samuel POPE and Elizabeth, baptized in 1782, making him 20 at the time of marriage; (2) John, son of Richard POPE and Charity, baptized in 1784, making him 18 at the time of the marriage; and (3) John, son of John POPE and Mary PACKER, baptized in 1865, making him 37 at the time of the marriage and 17 years older than Elizabeth. The naming of his first son, Samuel, plus his age makes it more likely he was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth.] [2]
