    Married
    • No Wm Pike marriages found in Stokenham, 1745 - 52.
      Not the William Peeke who married Jane Bickham in Stoke Fleming on 10 Apr 1748 - though the names and date are a good fit, the Stoke Fleming PRs show that this couple had a number of children baptised in Stoke Fleming the same time 'my' William and Jane Pike were having their children baptised in Stokenham.

    • William Pike signed and Mary made her mark; both witnesses appear on other marriages, John Sayes (? best guess) and John Gardner
      A William and Mary Pike had a son John baptised in Charleton on 24 Feb 1805; I don't believe it was this Wm and Mary - esp as they already had a son John, but could well be a relation (although Pike is generally a common name there weren't a lot in Stokenham and neighbouring villages; I don't know what became of some others e.g. this Wm's 1st cousin Wm bapt 1753 - could he be the father?) I came across looking thro' baptisms in the PRs (microfiche images) but South Hams website confirms it as the only Pike baptism in Charleton, 1730-1812.
