Jenson, our first ancestor, was married in Littleham in 1548. He would have been of marriageable age, say 21 to 25 on this date, so that his birth was between 1523 and 1527, too early for it to be recorded in the parish register, which was not started until 1538. So he was perhaps just born when
the Devon Morcombes paid taxes to Henry VIII in 1524 and 1525. There is a record of Davy Morcombe from Littleham by Bideford who paid tax at this time. Most likely Davy was the father of Jenson, but we have no records to support this.
