      "John Lavers of East Allington & Sarah Prout of Halwell Married 30th. May, by Banns"Although of East Allington and Halwell Parishes at the time of their marriage I think both John and Sarah were baptised in Slapton; they were probably living in East Allington and Halwell for work. Although both surnames were reasonably common in the area there was only one Lavers baptism in East Allington between 1700 - 1753 (in 1702; from the South Hams website index) and Prouts were similarly lacking in Halwell (the marriage was the only Pro*t CMB event in Halwell, for a birth 1704-1744, according to the FMP index, as at 21 May 2020). The Slapton baptisms seem the only likely ones, assuming the events were in a parish whose records survive, and both being from the same parish could explain how they knew each other. That said, whilst simply putting Halwell and Slapton into Google maps suggests they are 7 miles apart, and East Allington and Slapton 5 miles apart, there is no readily available infomation as to where the families lived in Slapton (if any survives at all) and there is unlikely to be anything to tell us whereabouts John and Sarah were in East Allington and Halwell. Looking at a map of the parish boundaries shows that the detached part of Halwell parish (as it was then - now part of Blackawton parish as the boundaries have been rationalised) has a significant length of boundary shared with East Allington and another section with Slapton. All 3 meet at one point. It is quite possible that John and Sarah lived near each other after moving from Slapton, and neither may have gone far from home at all.
