William Brind a butcher then from Bilsford in Buckland Brewer is indexed by findmy past as Brend in 1841 - original is ambiguous but probably looks more like Brend than Brind. In the 1832 Land Tax he is without doubt listed as Wm Brind occupier of Coles Manning - which I believe at the time consisted of my house - the one to which I am attached at right angles and quite a lot more land than now belongs to either property.

According to the 1851 census index (Brend) William was born about 1806 in Milton Damerel - baptised according to Family Search as William Vriend son of Richard and Agnes but there are children baptised in Milton Damerel to Richard and Agnes Brind prior to 1806 and again after 1806 when they are Brend.

William whoever he is married Ann Chappel in Buckland Brewer in 1829 - I have found 9 children in censuses.

Best I can do!
