    Notes 
    • Martha STUCKEY's baptism has not been found. The following represents my rationale regarding the liklihood that she belonged to William STUCKEY who married Mary WESTCOTT on 29 June 1808 in Eggesford.

      William STUCKEY who married Mary WESTCOTT was most likely the son of a William STUCKEY and Martha , baptized 18 April 1779 in Wembworthy. To name a daughter, Martha, after his own mother would be common practise.

      The following baptisms exist for a William STUCKEY and Mary who married in 1808:

      William, 20 March 1809, in Eggesford. Baptism register not available beyond 1812. [Married Mary; present in 1851 census with children.]

      Then in Wembworthy:

      Anna and Mary, 30 May 1813, with the comment in the register, " These two STUCKEY's added at the behest of another Rev. When or where they actually happened I do not know". [Mary married Robert JOSLIN; their daughter, Jane JOSLIN, was present in Martha STUCKEY's home in 1861] Is it possible "Anna" was in fact, "Martha", and was baptized in Eggesford ?]

      John, 23 July 1815 [Married Elizabeth WESTCOTT in 1844].

      Robert, 21 September 1817 [Married Elizabeth JOSLIN in 1839].

      Elizabeth, 14 November 1819 [Married Richard TRIGGER; her mother, Mary STUCKEY, was in her home in 1871].

      Samuel, 9 June 1822 [Present with his parents, William and Mary, in 1851].

      Jane, 21 September 1824 [Present with her parents in 1841].

      Dinah, 11 March 1827 [Living close to parents in 1841; in Martha STUCKEY's home in 1851].

      In the 1841 census, Martha and Joseph POPE were living beside the family of William and Mary STUCKEY, and their three children. William, age 60; Mary, age 56, Betsy, age 20, Jane, age 15, and Frederick, age 10. The address of the Stuckey family was Moorend Village, Wembworthy. Also close by was Dinah STUCKEY, age 14.

      On 22 June 1845, John STUCKEY and his wife, Elizabeth [possibly Elizabeth WESTCOTT], had a daughter baptized, Fanny Westcott STUCKEY; abode Moorend.

      In the 1851 census, Dinah STUCKEY, age 24, unmarried, born Wembworthy, was a visitor in Martha's home.

      In the 1861 census, a "niece", Jane JOSLIN, age 20, born Wembworthy was present in Martha's home. Jane JOSLIN was the daughter of Robert JOSLIN and Mary STUCKEY, who married in 1840. [If the term "niece" was accurate, then Martha and Mary were most likely sisters.

      While all this ties the baptized children to William and Mary STUCKEY, the inclusion of Martha in their lives is sufficient enough to raise the possibility that she too was a daughter of William and Mary.
