Funny thing those Census records. 1851 shows Richard Jessop from Tavistock but Elizabeth Maillen is from Okehampton and both are living in Okehampton. The 1841 census has both of them from Okehampton. Born around 1816 but no trace to date of his parents. Found a few other little snippets too on Richard Jessop. Apprenticed to Richard Colling on 30 Jan 1828 under the trade of tinman & brazier in Tavistock, Devon, England (assuming this is the same Richard Jessop but too much of a coincidence being around 12 years of age, in a trade that leads to ironmongery and in Tavistock, so he may originally be from Tavistock. Reference is Married on the 9th instant at Sticklepath 9/7/1839, in the Wesleyan Chapel, by the Rev. J. Stote, Mr. Richard Jessop, ironmonger, to Miss Elizabeth Maillen, both of Okehampton, in the presence of Mr. Newton, the registrar, and other respectable persons of the neighbourhood. Died Feb 21st 1890. Buried at All Saints Churchyard, Okehampton.
