BMDB data

     Florence Bootel was born bef. 1655 ?Sampford Spiney, DEV, ENG.1
     Florence Bootel married John King, son of Elizabeth UnknownSurname, on 2 Aug 1675 Sampford Spiney, DEV, ENG, NB the Dartmoor Press webpage has this couple as marrying 2 Aug 1625, but the actual entry reads "John King & fflorance Bootel was married on the 2th (sic) day of August 1675", so for now, I've assumed that the intervening generation of a Robert and Ann that Mike B had between John/Florence and John/Elizabeth, doesn't exist.1,2 Florence King was buried on 19 Jan 1689 Walkhampton, DEV, ENG, being described as a widow.3

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.
