    • John NOSWORTHY, of South Brent, and Anne BRINNING, sojourner, married on 27 June 1805 in Buckfastleigh. (Parish Register) [In spite of the fact that John NOSWORTHY was from the parish of South Brent when he married, it is still believed that he was the son of William and Ann NOSWORTHY, and born in Widecombe in the Moor. This is based on the 1851 & 1861 censuses; on his age at burial which was 84 in 1862, which supports a birth around 1778; and on the historical documentation of his son, who immigrated to Canada in 1852, which provides further support for this claim.
