|10 May 1804||Matthias WINYETT||marriage||Spouse: Elizabeth HANDFORD. Bachelor and spinster both OTP BY BANNS. Witnesses: Matthias WINGETT, Snr (his mark), J. Wetherall.||What appears to have happened here is that Mathew married
Elizabeth HANDFORD in Stokeinteignhead in 1808 and had two children.
He then died about four years later - we don't know how - so the widow and
her children became chargeable to the parish.
The settlement examination was obviously to see who was going to pay. They must have decided that it was to be Elizabeth's parish of birth - presumably Widecombe - and she and the kids were sent there.
