All the other info

     Patience Pike and Walter Pyke Ch of St Andrews, Bere Ferrers, Par. of Bere Ferrers, DEV, ENG, in 1752 were possibly related, as I'd like to think that Walter is Patience's grandfather, purely because I like his headstone
     "By a fall I caught my death
     Which no man knows his time nor breath
     I might have dyd as soon as then
     Had I been with phisitian men."4
