Jane Ridgeway, daughter of James Ridgeway and Mary Ann Lock, sister of Mary Ridgeway, married Thomas Vickery (bap. 23 Nov 1834 in Sampford Peverell), son of James Vickery and Elizabeth Webber (m. 26 Mar 1818), on 7 May 1865 at St Peter's Church, Tiverton. There, in March of the same year, Thomas Vickery and Jane Ridgway had been witnesses to the marriage of Jane's brother Thomas Ridgway to Ann Tooze. Reversing the roles, witnessing Thomas and Jane Vickery's marriage were the recently married, Thomas and Ann Ridgeway.

In 1871, Thomas Vickery (37) Farm Labourer, Jane Vickery (32) and George Coombe (37) Miller, Lodger, were living at Lands Mill, Uplowman

Thomas Vickery died, aged 45, and was buried on 16 Apr 1879, in Uplowman. 

In 1881, Jane Vickery (43) Widow, Laundress, was living with her brother-in-law and sister Henry and Mary Stone, still at Lands Mill, Uplowman.

On 24 Jun 1882, Jane Ridgeway remarried to James Copp, at St Peter’s ChurchUplowman. James Copp, b. 24 Feb 1832 and bap. 11 Mar 1832, was son of Thomas Copp and Elizabeth Hall (m. 26 Mar 1831).

Neither marriage produced any children.

In 1891, James Copp (59) Mason and Jane Copp (52) were living at Woods Tenement, Pinnex Moor, Tiverton. (If now replaced by the 'bungalow land' of Pinnex Moor Road, 'tenement' suddenly sounds wildly enticing!)

In 1901, James Copp (69) Mason and Jane Copp (62) were living at 67, Barrington Street, Tiverton.

Jane Copp died in 1905, aged 66. James Copp died in 1911, at 78.
