BMDB data

     James Rowe was born cir. Apr 1778 Buckland Monachorum, DEV, ENG.4,3 He was baptized on 5 Apr 1778 Buckland Monachorum, DEV; entry clearly dated April 5th for year 1778 reads: "James Son of Joseph Rowe and Elizth his Wife."2,3 Some sources show James as born on 2 Aug 1778 but this was on trees received before the extracts from the Buckland baptisms, which show a baptism on 5th Apr 1777, and before the entry was actually checked, and confirmed as 5th Apr 1778.5,1,6,3,2
     James Rowe died cir. Feb 1867 Exeter, DEV, ENG; aged 89 (not, as some had previously thought, the Dec qtr 1852 dth reg. in Exeter as James was enumerated in the 1861 census and is buried in a Trimble family tomb with a date of 1867.)7,8,9 He was buried on 7 Feb 1867 All Hallows Goldsmith St, Exeter, DEV, ENG, which rather contradicts the date of death previously advised as 2 March 1867.9,7
