John Daw1

(circa 1799 - July 1831)

BMDB data

     John Daw was born cir. 1799 Tavistock?, DEV, ENG.2
     John Daw married Mary Friend, daughter of James Friend and Rebecca UnknownSurname (m. FRIEND), on 4 Dec 1823 Stoke Damerel, DEV, ENG, banns called St Eustachus 7th, 14th, 21st Jan 1821 (sic), John Daw and Mary Friend b.o.t.p.
Bishop Transcripts for the Parish of Stoke Damerel show the marriage of John Daw hatter and Mary Friend b.o.t.p. 4 Dec 1823 ! Both signed; Wit: Thomas Smith, Mary Burt.3,4,5
     John Daw died in Jul 1831 Higher Brook St, Tavistock, DEV, ENG, leaving behind his wife with an unborn child.2 He was buried on 7 Jul 1831 Tavistock, DEV, ENG, entry shows John DAW as 32, resid. Higher Brook St.2
     Does anyone have any explanation for the date discrepancies between the Tavistock Jan 1821 banns being followed by a marriage in Stoke Damerel in Dec 1823, the latter coming from the Bishops Transcripts?
A very slow Bishop? Cold feet?
Both images are clearly dated.6

All the other info

     John Daw baptized Whitchurch 1798 to Isaac and Sarah DAWE, and John Daw marrying Mary FRIEND and having a son Isaac Friend DAW in Oct 1798 are possibly the same person, this bog post refers.
I would love to hear from any descendants of John and Mary that may be able to confirm this identification.6

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.
