     James Barter King paid a heriot in 1799 due on the death of Elizabeth King of Bridgetown, Manor of Walkhampton, DEV, ENG, "Jas Barter King for an Hert. due on Eliza King's death for Bridgetown" As his sister Elizabeth King wife of John Dawe of Yeolland died in 1799, I've assumed she was a "life" on Bridgetown.10

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.
