BMDB data

     Honor Dawe was born cir. 1805 DEV?, ENG, (the previous "abt 1811" came from an 1841 census, now discounted given her age at burial.)3,4
     Honor Dawe married Anthony Brooking, son of Anthony Brooking and Mary Rowe, on 25 Dec 1841 Par. Ch, Par. of Charles Martyr, Plymouth, DEV, ENG, cert. shows both Anthony and Honor were of full age, Anthony a carpenter resid. Jubilee St, s/o George Brooking a carpenter (should be Anthony), and Honor resid. Ham St, d/o John Dawe a labourer, both signed, wit by M Rickard (?Richard?) and Robt Lewis.2,5
     Honor Dawe died in Feb 1846 Paddington St, Marylebone, LND, ENG; in childbirth, baby also died (but the dth regs are 6 mths apart.) Qtr 1
Anthony widower 1851 cens.3,6 She was buried on 15 Feb 1846 Marylebone, LND, ENG, entry shows Honor as 41, of Paddington St.3
     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.7

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.
