I need to buy some transcribed records from the DFHS to try to get more information about the Seldons.

Date and place of birth - abt 1725, Landkey, Devon

Names of parents – Richard and Mary (nee Honnacott) Seldon

Details of each of his or her marriages – to Jone/Joan (unknown) probably in Landkey about 1750

Occupation(s) – Ag Lab

Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on (if s/he lived in census times!).
He appears to have lived in Landkey all his life. All 6 of his known children were born/baptised in Landkey, Devon between 1756 & 1770

Date and place of burial – 27 June 1801, Trinity Churchyard, Landkey, Devon

ElizabethHerts kindly found some references at the National Archives online to this branch of the Seldon family, but I've been unable to confirm them yet. I'm still trying though!

Sue, this marriage took place in 1755, so 5 years later than you stated. However, I posted it as Tawstock is only 4 miles from Landkey and the name Jane/Jone could be interchangeable. (Am I clutching at straws??)

Ooh, did I? I wondered why the name seemed familiar.

The first child I have is Richard, baptised in Landkey on 20 April 1756. (not 1856 )

I had seen that marriage before (I think you may have found it for me?)
and I'm not sure whether it is 'mine'.

I do have the stuff from Genuki, thanks.


Sorry, I tried to multiquote and I can't do it today for some reason.

I should think the marriage is a strong contender. You could ask if anyone on any forums visits the RO at Exeter to look at the PR.

All 6 of his children inherited 1/6 of a property called Thorne Park in the Parish of Charles. This was left to them by a John Thorne-I don’t know his connection
