Thomas Tooze and Joan Potter married, on 6 May 1795, at All Saints Church, Holcombe Rogus, Devon. Thomas Tooze, bap. 5 Jun 1770 in Holcombe Rogus, was the son of William Tooze and Joan [maiden name as yet unknown], while Joan Potter, bap. 21 Jan 1771, also in Holcombe Rogus, was the daughter of James Potter and Jane Stone (who in turn had married in Holcombe Rogus, on 16 Apr 1770.) Was Jane Stone related to all my other Stone ancestors? Sadly, that's too early for available records, so we may never confirm either way.

Thomas and Joan had five sons, all also baptised at Holcombe Rogus: 
  1. Thomas Tooze bap. 29 Jan 1797 (must have died in infancy)
  2. Thomas Tooze bap. 17 May 1801
  3. Richard Tooze bap. 24 Jul 1803
  4. John Tooze bap. 25 Dec 1806
  5. William Tooze bap. 3 Apr 1809
Thomas Tooze died, aged 70, in 1840 and was buried in Holcombe Rogus.

There is a Joan Tooze (70) - b. 1771 - living in Holcombe Rogus in 1841, with a James Tooze (15), who I believe is her grandson, son of Thomas and Mary Tooze. I've not found any further records for Joan or of her death / burial.
