     John King was born aft. 1676 prob. at ?Sampford Spiney, DEV, ENG.4,5,6
     John King married Elizabeth Northmore on 25 Sep 1699 Bickleigh, DEV, ENG, entry reads: 1699 John King and Elizabeth Northmore were married Sep 25th (I initially transcribed this as 29th, but the Dartmoor Press web pages have 25th, as does John, and rechecking it, the chap's 9s do look rather different, so I've agreed it's a 5.)2,7,1,8
     John King died cir. Mar 1737 ?Sampford Spiney, DEV.1,4 He was buried on 24 Mar 1736/37 Walkhampton, DEV, ENG.5

All the other info

     John King and Robert King were possibly related, ?siblings?3
     John outlived his wife Elizabeth King who died cir. Nov 1708 ?wonder if John remarried. He would have had a newborn child to look after along with at least a 1, 4 and 6 yr old.9,10
     John King was Sampford Spiney, Roborough Hundred, DEV, ENG, in 1733 as he appears on the Devon Freeholders lists for that year, being shown as eligible, and obliged, to serve on juries. In 1730 the qualification for such service was widened from owning freehold land of £10 or more, to include men 21 to 70 who held land by lease of a minimum value of £20, provided such leases were for 500 years or more, or 99 years or other term determiniable on one or more lives. On the 1741 lists, his sons (my assumption as to relationships) Richard and Walter King show up as leaseholders instead of John, given he had died 4 years earlier.11

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.
