     Honor Dawe was born cir. Dec 1804 Lamerton, DEV, ENG.2 She was baptized on 26 Dec 1804 Lamerton Ch, nr Tavistock, DEV, ENG; entry shows Honor as "daur of Isaac and Sarah Dawe."1,3,4,5,2
     IF we can disbelieve that Anthony's father given on the marriage cert. of Anthony Brooking to Honor Dawe, is George, substituting the Anthony we believe, is it pushing the limits of possiblity to also switch Honor's father from being John, ag lab to being Isaac, miller?
Many trees have made that leap, but I suspect most haven't seen the marriage cert. :).
Honor's of an age and place are hard to find in burials prior to 1841, or in the 1841 census for that matter.6

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
