Third Generation

4. William ARSCOTT4 married Elizabeth MARKS on 31 December 1785 in South Tawton. The address was: Anglican Church. This is just after the birth of WIlliam on the 11th December, There is a concurrent William Arscott who already a widower marries Eliazabeth Jones in South Tawton on 2nd Nov 1785 - this William had already father a son called William in approx 1781 with his first wife and hence on the balance of probabilities I feel that the.

 

There are too many different Wiliam Arscotts in South Tawton to reliably go back from here.

 

5. Elizabeth MARKS4 has few details recorded about her.

 

This would be just after the birth of WIlliam on 11 Dec 1785. As the widower William who also marries an Elizabrth in South Tawton in 1785 already had a son Willian to his first wife in 1781, believe on balance of probablities this is the correct marriage for the parents of our William born in 1785.15
