mygriffiths, thank you for you time spent on this. If you don't mind me asking, which website did you refer to, to find out above information? How sure are you, Mary you kindly found is the correct Mary who went on to marry John Radford.

Trying to find out John Radfords parents names.

Parents MAYBE Isaac Radford Born 1749 Kentisbeare, Devon -Died 29th November 1789 Kentisbeare Mary Lane 1754 Kentisbeare, Devon Died June 1815, Kentisbeare

Where else can I look, I would hate to go down the wrong path and waste time.

John Radford Born 1777 in Bradninch, Devon

John Radford Baptised TBC (Maybe Parish Church of Saint Disens OR Bradninch Baptist Church)

Devon Archives and Local Studies Service responded to my email - They have taken a look at the Baptism register for Bradninch register for Bradninch but was unable to find an entry for John Radford in 1777. They also searched a couple of years either side of this date but no John Radford was found. Is it possible that he was baptised in a neighbouring parish or elsewhere? Possibly at a later date? Baptism didn't always take place in the weeks or months after the birth. (Though it is normal).

Married Mary (maiden name and date not known)

Any assistance you can offer is appreciated.

mygriffiths, thank you once again. I use Ancestry and haven't got access to Find My Past.

I found something that lead me to believe John Radfords parents might be :

Isaac Radford Born 1749 Kentisbeare, Devon -Died 29th November 1789 Kentisbeare

Mary Lane 1754 Kentisbeare, Devon Died June 1815, Kentisbeare

Does Find My Past have any information to relation to them at all?
