      Possibly 22 Mar 1717/18 in Meavy if she was not the Elizabeth who married Nicholas Abbot, else probably the widow of the Lewis who died in 1710, although there was also an Elizabeth bapt 1703 for whom I currently know of no marriage or burial.

    Notes 
    • Elizabeth was a Jutsham when she married Stephen, no evidence of whether she was a widow or Jutsham was her maiden name but I suspect the former. It would have been probable that the widow of Bernard would remarry, this marriage fits well and no baptism of the baptism of an Elizabeth Jutsham found to fit.
    • (Research):Quite a few Collins entries in Meavy around the time Elizabeth married, but none noticed around the time she would probably have been born / baptized. This suggests Elizabeth may have moved to the parish with her parents / siblings - TO DO: look at the other Collins in Meavy and see if I can build a picture of what her family might have been and then look for similar in nearby parishes.

    • From PR entry (image on FMP):
      "Nickolas Abot was maried to Elizabeth Jutsham April the 20 1713"

      ** Please note, I am not certain that it was this Elizabeth who married Nicholas Abbott **
      I had no evidence that it was this Elizabeth Jutsham; another was married to Lewis Justham who probably died in 1710, so she too could have been marrying in 1713. Strangely, she too was an Elizabeth Collins, at least at the time of her marriage to Lewis.

      I do now think that I have some other circumstantial evidence. Stephen, son of Stephen Juthsam and Elizabeth, moved from Buckland Monachorum to Stoke Dameral c. 1740, with his young family. Stephen and Thomasina had 2 more children before both died in 1747, leaving (so far as I know, I could be missing burials) 6 children aged just 1 to 15. So far I know nothing of what happened to the 3 older children, aged 12-15, but do know something of what happened to 3 younger. John, aged about 10 at the time of his parents death married some 14 years later in Falmouth, so it seems reasonable to suppose he became a mariner. What happened in those intervening years, whether he found employment on the sea at age 10, or whether he returned to Buckland Monachorum, I know not.
      His 2 surviving younger sisters did both return to Buckland Monachorum. This may have been because this was where they had a right of settlement and it would have fallen to the Overseers of the Poor of Buckland Monachorum to take care of them, 8 year old Elizabeth and 1 year old Grace, or it may have been because there were relations there who could provide for them. On their maternal side their grandmother had died some years earlier and their grandfather died a month after their mother. However, on their paternal side while their grandfather had died young a couple I believe were probably their grandmother and step-grandfather were living in Buckland Monachorum. If I am right about this couple, then they also had a half aunt and uncle living there, John and Prudence Abbott. I did wonder if Elizabeth had been removed to Buckland Monachorum on becoming pregnant, since an illegitimate child had as the place it was entitled to settle the place where it was born, but as Elizabeth and her sister Grace were young enough to have needed the support of overseers or family when their parents died I suspect they moved to Buckland at an earlier date.
      Not perhaps in the order one might expect, Elizabeth's son Richard Pike JUSTHAM does seem to have named his daughters after people important in his life. The first appears to have been named after someone in his step-father's family, the 2nd, Grace, may well have been after his mother's sister, the one who also returned to Buckland with her. Before he gave the name of the first, who had died, to the fourth and then gave the name of his mother and mother-in-law, Elizabeth, to his fifth daughter he named one Prudence. Does this indicate that his half great-aunt (by marriage) Prudence ABBOTT was important in his life? I suspect it does, and was the reason he used this name. Of his other three daughters he eventually named one after his wife, and gave another the name Elizabeth, the first with the name having died. That only leaves Nann with no clear reason for the use of the name, but being a variant of Ann he may have used it for the same reason, both Anns having died. This use of names of people who must have been important to him means that I think we should expect to see a Prudence in his life, and so his great aunt makes sense as this person.
      With his own mother aged only about 17 when he was born Prudence, probably in her 30s, may have been a more stable motherly figure. She lived until Richard was 30, so there was plenty of time for her to be influential in his life - in fact, she was still alive when he named a daughter Prudence, so she may have been one of his daughter'sa godmothers.
