Narrative

He is the earliest Kingwell ancestor we can be reasonably sure of. He spelt his name Kingwill. Yeoman farmer. He left to all his children from both wives in his will.
Who was he? A search if the IGI for 1732 +- 20 years yields:
RICHARD KINGWILL: 26 FEB 1722 Zeal Monachorum, Devon, England
RICHARD KINGWILL: 15 MAY 1726 Widecombe In The Moor, Devon, England
RICHARD KINGWILL: 07 JUN 1730 Zeal Monachorum, Devon, England
RICHARD KINGWILL: 09 NOV 1731 Coldridge, Devon, England
RICHARD KINGWELL: 18 OCT 1732 Loddiswell, Devon, England
RICHARD KINGWEL: 08 MAR 1740 Thelbridge, Devon, England
Of course there may well be others not in the IGI.
The Loddiswell one looks tempting as Loddiswell is not far from Modbury. This is a submitted entry and is actually wrong. The mothers name should be Elizabeth. Richard Kingwell and Elizabeth Willing married 15 May 1725 in Woodleigh. I have checked the parish records and there are two burials for Richard Kingwill on 20 Jan 1732 and 6 Feb 1734. These could well be father and son. There are no records of any other Kingwells in Loddiswell that I have found.
The Coldridge one is also interesting. Coldridge is farther away but there are names such as Eve and Samuel who are probably the same family and these names occur in Richard's children. Eve, in particular, is a rare name in Devon at this time.
