     Sarah Bidgood married Richard Nicholas, son of Gregory Nicholas and Sarah Dawe, on 14 Oct 1861 Par. Ch of St Paul, Tavistock, DEV, ENG, cert. shows Richard as sailor, s/o Gregory NICHOLAS, farmer; Sarah as d/o Abraham BIDGOOD, labourer; Both of full age and resid.

     My speculation that Sarah might be Abraham & Joan's first child appears to be correct.
Sarah's birth date of c. 1835 would fit the marriage date for Joan and Abraham.
Sarah was living with Abraham's mother in 1841 and 1851, this latter being next door to Joan's brother Isaac.
Her mariage cert. shows her living at Newon Mills, and as dtr of Abraham Bidgood, labourer.
A baptism entry of a Sarah dtr of Abraham, labourer, & Joan Turner of Newton fits known info of Abraham being Tirner or Bidgood, including the change over time.1,9,10,4,2
