Subject: MITCHELL and HARVEY [Stoke Damerel]

Does anyone have access to the original Stoke Damerel marriage records
please? So far I have only managed to see transcripts, which have the
marriage on 18 Feb 1813 between William WITFILL and Mary HARVEY.
I am hoping the bridegroom is actually William MITCHELL.
William Mitchell, sawyer, was the father of at least the following children
William MITCHELL, b.1813
Mary Harvey MITCHELL b.1818
John MITCHELL b.1820
Richard MITCHELL b.1828?
and possibly others
Philip MITCHELL b. abt1817
In the 1841 Census Mary and her husband John Thomas SMITH were living with
the three I assume were her brothers, and with Tamsin and John EDWARDS.
Tamsin was Tamsin MITCHELL.before this marriage.
My theory is that William and Tamsin were half-siblings, children of Philip
MITCHELL of Bideford. Though Tamsin and John married late, and it is
possible Tamsin was actually their mother in a second marriage.
Thank you if you can help
