Richard was from Chew Magna in Somerset. The FEAR family were in Chew Magna from the early 16th century.
Mary was baptized in nearby Stanton Drew on 20 November 1752, the daughter of Mr Francis Fowler.
Richard and Mary were married in Stanton Drew on 3 October 1771, after banns read on 18th, 25th August and 1st September.
I know little about Richard and Mary, other than the fact that the baptism register has "P" or "Pauper" written beside the entries for their youngest childen. That indicates that they were not able to pay the fee asked by the vicar for the baptisms.
