James Ridgway (b. 10 Feb 1904), son of James Ridgeway and Harriet Stone, in 1939, was a Farm Carter, living at Rose Cottage, Stag Mill, Uplowman with his wife listed as Evelyn S (b. 30 Jul 1901). So far, I've been unable to find a record of their marriage or Evelyn's maiden name. Evelyn Laura Ridgway or Ridgeway, married woman, of Rose Cottage, Stag Mill, Uplowman, died at Tidcombe Hall, Tiverton, on 1 Oct 1960, aged 59, leaving her effects to Charles Edwin Howden, retired postman [was he a relative?]. James Ridgeway died in 1976. 

(Alice Maud Middleton had also died at Tidcombe Hall (in 1982). The Early 19th century house, shown as Tidcombe Rectory on late 19th century Ordnance Survey map, was also once a Marie Curie daycare unit.)
