I have been doing a family search for my great-great grandfather born in 1803 and the only James Hodder born that year in Devon came from Uplyme. His father was a Thomas Hodder and his mother was Mary, but James did not get married in Uplyme he married in Tiverton to a Rachel Cooksley, who came from Chard, Somerset. They did not have any relatives as witnesses, so I am hoping that someone from Uplyme, who may be a relative of James Hodder, would know more about the Hodder family?
