I am looking for the birth place of Samuel Palmer.
In the 1851 Bishopsteignton census he says he is age 68 and was born in Hennock, making him born about 1783, but on looking through the Hennock PR there is no Samuel Palmer anywhere near that date.
There is however a Samuel Palmer born 9 May 1784 to Samuel and Mary Palmer in the Bovey Tracey PR. But on the Bishops transcript it looks like it is spelled Parmer.
There is also a marriage between Samuel Parmer and Mary Lamzed on the 21 April 1783 in Bovey Tracey.
Has anyone researched these names and can advise me on the likelyhood that the Palmer and Parmer names are the same persons.
Also has anyone any knowledge of the Lamzed name as I can't located a birth for Mary Lamzed in Bovey Tracey, but there is a Mary Lamshead born 4 April 1763 in Bovey Tracey.
Are the Lamzed and Lamshead names the same family?
