    Notes 
    • There was another line of Trants in W Alvington other than that from which this Nicholas came but I haven't found a Nicholas in it so guess Sarah's father was this one.

      Could well be the Sarah Trant who marr Thomas Wills Lethbridge; banns in East Allington, 3rd reading 7 Nov 1830, marr in E Allington, 9 Nov 1830 - Thomas otp, Sarah sojourner (pos living with her uncle George) - the 1841 census shows that that Sarah was b c 1806-1811
      OR she may have died as a baby - a Sarah Trant was buried in W Alvington 31 12 1810 - but there were also Sarahs born W Alvington 1747 and 1771.

    • ** I'm not sure that I am right in linking the Sarah who married Thomas Wills Lethbridge and Sarah the daughter of Nicholas **

      In one way it makes sense - I have found no other baptism of a Sarah who could have married Thomas in 1830 (and is not otherwise accounted for). A Sarah was baptised in 1807 but when she married her father's name was recorded, and she is found in censuses which confirm which she was through age and birthplace.
      In addition, I can find no other marriage / fate that I can associate with the Sarah baptised in 1810.

      I believe the Sarah who became Sarah Lethbridge died as shown, and the age is not quite right, but it seems not unlikely that that could be about 4 years out.

      It may seem a little strange that this couple's first son was named Philip Trant LETHBRIDGE. Philip was not generally a very common name at this time, but was popular in the Trant family. Although Sarah's father was called Nicholas he died when she was just a baby. I don't know what became of her mother, but she was probably the niece of a Philip Trant; maybe he played a significant role in her life and it was in acknowledgement of that. (He was well placed to help her
