1764 Stephen WINGATE settlement certificate Stephen Wingett, sergeweaver, Joan Wingett his sister and Ann Wingett, her bastard daughter.
Parish of Legal Settlement St Nicholas (Shaldon).
Looks as thought this Stephen is the son of Stephen born in 1728 above.  I don't know why their settlement should be in Shaldon. DRO: ref.  3419 A/PO12/
19 Jun 1785 Ann WINGATE marriage Spouse: Robert MOORE.  Both OTP*, by Banns.  Both made their mark.  Witnesses:  Willm BENNETT & John RORK Is this the "bastard daughter" of Stephen's sister Ann above? OPC
14 Sep 1786 Joan WINGATE burial no age given   OPC
08 Jul 1787 Stephen WINGAT burial no age given   OPC
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.
