The Stocker Family in Devon

This page lists those members of the Stocker family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

We are descended from a Stocker family who lived in Honiton in east Devon. We have traced our line back to Samuel Stocker and Ann Powning, who were married in Honiton in 1677. Many family members were baptised at the New Meeting House in Honiton, but there are large gaps in the surviving registers. Much of what we know about names and relationships comes from wills rather than from baptism records. For a few people the names and relationships are all that we do know, so there are still more loose ends than we would like.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are in Devon unless otherwise indicated.
