George Shears, sometime churchwarden of St. Sidwell’s church, Exeter, married Elizabeth Vincent there on 11 February 1796. He is listed in the 1816 directory as a maltster in St. Sidwell’s, and later as clerk of the coaching office at the London Inn. His wife died aged fifty-seven in March 1828 “after fulfilling well, in her days of activity all the relative duties of life, and supporting a lingering illness with pious resignation”. He survived a further eleven years.
