    No baptism has yet been found for Matthew; nevertheless, he stated his father was Thomas at the time of his marriage. There was only one Thomas Nosworthy in Staverton, Devon raising a family between the years 1808-37 which supports the likelihood that he most likely belongs with this family.

Generation: 4

    Notes:

    Christened:
    (1) "With regards the entry of the baptism of Thomas 22-4-1779, the vicar made a mistake in the entry; it was written as follows: Thomas, son of William and Aowsworthy; he then added Ann before the surname, but did not correct the spelling of the surname."

    Buried:
    Burial record stated his abode was Staverton; his age 62 years.

    Died:
    Death registered for Thomas Nosworthy JFM 1839 Totnes.

    Thomas married Grace Palk 2 Aug 1808, Buckfastleigh, Devon. Grace was born Abt 1785; was christened 2 Jan 1785, Staverton, Devon; died 1842. [Group Sheet]


  2. 9.  Grace Palk was born Abt 1785; was christened 2 Jan 1785, Staverton, Devon; died 1842.

    Notes:

    Christened:
    Grace, dau. of William Palk and Mary, baptized 2 Jan. 1785 in Staverton.

    It is believed that the parents of Grace were William Palk and Mary Perrett by a process of elimination regarding (1) the name Grace, and (2) the fact that three children were baptised around the same year.

    Died:
    Death registered for Grace Norsworthy JFM 1842 Totnes.

    Notes:

    Married:
    Marriage entry states: Thomas Nosworthy of the parish of Staverton and Grace Palk, both sojourners in this parish, were married in this church by banns this second day of August in the year one thousand eight hundred and eight, by me Matthew Lowndes, Vicar. In the presence of (the mark of ) Agnes Foot? and Robert Webber. Grace could not sign the register and made her mark.

    Although Thomas' parents are not named on the marriage record, he is believed to be Thomas, son of William Nosworthy and Ann Cleave, for the following reasons:

    (1) The Staverton parish records demonstrate that Thomas was not baptized in that parish. The children of Thomas and Grace are the first Nosworthy baptisms in the parish after a lapse of many, many years.

    (2) Widecombe is only 8 miles from Staverton.

    (3) Thomas and Grace named their second child, Ambrose, who was born ca 1811, and Thomas' own brother, Ambrose had just died at the age of 25 in 1810.

    (4) There is a burial of a Thomas Nosworthy, in Widecombe, 06 January, 1839, whose abode was Staverton, age 62; although a couple of years out, this also supports the liklihood that this is the Thomas who married Grace. (original burial records)
