Have you seen this, Sue?

Search for "Seldon" to get there more quickly.

Quite a few Seldons are mentioned, including Christopher.

There is this will but the place is rather further south than Landkey. Worth bearing in mind, though.

Edit - I think you can rule that out!

I don't know the relationship of Thomas Seldon to Richard but this could be interesting:

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/d...&resultcount=8

This (from above) seems to explain somewhat:

CHARLES, BARNSTAPLE. 48/25/4/2/5 29 March 1805

Contents:
45 George III
Assignment of leases for 2000 years and 1000 years.
(1) Elizabeth Seldon of Landkey, widow, relict and administratrix of Thomas Seldon, deceased.
(2) John Seldon of Bratton Fleming, yeoman, Christopher Seldon of Landkey, yeoman, Robert Cawsey of Pilton, yeoman, and Mary his wife, and Richard Seldon of Landkey, yeoman (John, Richard and Christopher Seldon, and Mary Cawsey, [B]being next of kin of Thomas Seldon, who died intestate[/B]).
Moiety of a sixth share of Thorn Park, in Charles Parish.
Consideration: 5s., and undertaking by (2) to assign to (1) 2 leases for 500 years and 1000 years, of a moiety of a field near Maidenford in Barnstaple Parish.


I'm not sure about the dying intestate bit, though!

A couple of burials:
Surname: Seldon
Forename: Richard
Age: 73
Year: 1829
Month: Jun
Day: 27
Notes:
Parish: Landkey
Town Or City:
County: Devon
Record source: Devon Burials
Data provider: Devon Family History Society

There is also this one in Okehampton:
Surname: Seldon
Forename: Richard
Age: 69
Year: 1827
Month: Aug
Day: 07
Notes:
Parish: Okehampton
Town Or City:
County: Devon

Both fit in time-wise, but the top one more likely.

I hope this link works for Seldon baptisms at Landkey.

No it doesn't - so this is the batch number to search.
