Robert Luxton 1810 - Roberet was baptised in Brushford on January 1, 1810

Robert Luxton (1810 - 1900) the third son of George Luxton (1770 - 1848) and his wife Elizabeth Wreford of Steers Cottage, Brushford established a large family branch.
Robert was baptised at Brushford on January 1, 1810. As Robert Luxton of Eggesford (sojourner in Winkleigh) he married Rebecca Hammett Ware at Winkleigh after banns on November 17, 1835. The late Gladys Mary Luxton, his great granddaughter wrote - "Robert left Brushford when quite young, with a maid servant whom he married. They settled in the village of Newton St Cyres, he having been been disowned by his family. He was employed by Squire Quicke". Oral traditions usually contain a speck of truth, but if Robert was disowned by his family not all his relatives were opposed to the wedding, which was witnessed by George Luxton, who was perhaps his father or brother. Initially too, the young couple settled in Coldridge and then Brushford where in 1841 Robert aged 30, agricultural labourer, lived at Little Brushford, with Rebecca 25 and their children Mary 5 and William 1. Their eldest son Robert age 3 is listed in the same census staying with his maternal grandmother Sarah Ware, aged 60 in Winkleigh. The couple moved with their growing family some time about 1843, to Fishers Cottage in Newton St Cyres, where he was employed by Squire Quicke who resided at the stuccoed Georgian Newton House. Robert and his family was still at Fishes Cottage in 1861, but ten years later were at Clay Hill and at West Town in 1881 and 1981. The West Town, Newton St Cyres census records, Robert 84, and his wife Rebecca 81. Their granddaughter Florence Ellen Luxton aged 15, a laundress, lived with the old couple. Rebecca Hammett Luxton died aged 81, in the winter of 1894, while Robert Luxton aged 90, died in St Thomas, Exeter in the winter of 1900.

"BRUSHFORD, a small parish in the Taw valley, 5 miles S. by W. of Chulmleigh, has only 144 souls, and about 1000 acres of land, nearly all the property, and in the occupation of the Luxton family, to whom it has belonged since the reign of Elizabeth, previous to which the manor and tithes belonged to Hartland Abbey. The Church (St. Mary,) is a small structure, with a tower and three bells. George Luxton, Esq., is impropiator of the tithes and patron of the perpetual curacy, valued at £51, and now held by the Rev. John Luxton, B.A." [From White's Devonshire Directory (1850)]

"NEWTON ST. CYRES, a pleasant village, on the south side of the vale of the river Creedy, 4½ miles N.W. of Exeter, and 3½ E.S.E. of Crediton. Its parish contains 1234 souls, and 4305 acres of land, rising in bold undulations from the river, and including the tythings of Ford, Norton, and Smallbrook, the hamlet of Winscott, and many scattered houses. . . . John Quicke, Esq., is lord of the manor of Newton, and resides at Newton House, where his family has been seated since the reign of Elizabeth. . . . The Church (St. Cyres,) stands on a fine eminence, and has a tower and five bells. It was built in the 12th or 13th century, and has a large burial ground surrounded by fine lime trees, &c. The interior was recently repewed, in 1831, and has several monuments of the Northcote and Quicke families, one of which has effigies of Jacob Northcote Esq., and his two wives, who died in the 17th century. The vicarage, valued in K.B. at £16. 15s. 5d., and in 1831 at £425, is in the patronage of John Quicke, Esq., and incumbency of the Rev. E.H. Quicke, B.A. . . . " [From White's Devonshire Directory (1850)]
