I've found some records for what I believe could possibly be some of my ancestors. Does anyone know anything more about this family??

I believe this Mary Ann Davey was my GGG Grandmother.
From the Devon message board I obtained records of my GGG Grandparents family from the 1851 census. Mary Ann gave her birth place as Bow near Exeter. A check of the map shows Bow right next to Nymet Tracey, both near Exeter.
Mary Ann married Thomas Smith on 5 Nov 1826 in West Teignmouth, Devon, England. Thomas was born about 1808 in Bishopsteignton,Devon, England.
I found a record for the Marriage of a Mary Ann Davey to a Thomas Ford in Nymet Tracey in 1828. This made me wonder whether I had the right Mary Ann??

Does anyone have any information about this Davey/Davy family?
Any help would be most appreciated.

A. O'Brien,
