Jane Mogridge m. Peter Sharland 1773

I am looking for information about Jane Mogridge, who married Peter Sharland at Witheridge, Devon on 2 August 1773. She may have been born about 1750 (though her husband was born 1738) at Poughill, near Cheriton Fitzpaine. Children she and Peter had were: Jane b. 1775; William b. 1776; James b. 1777; Peter (my ancestor) b. 1778; Elizabeth b. 1787; Mary b. 1790. These were all born at Cheriton Fitzpaine.
1.Jane married Joseph Wippell and they lived in Exeter where he was a Grocer.
2.William married Elizabeth Comins of Witheridge and was a Tanner in Cheriton Fitzpaine.
3.James married Betty Blackmore in Shobrooke, and was a Cobbler.
4.Peter married Mary Greenslade in Bishop's Nympton, was possibly a Currier (working on finishings of leather) and then Elizabeth Gould Campbell and after that lived in Woodbury.
5.Elizabeth (stayed single? married?)
6. Mary (stayed single? married?)
(So many Sharland families recycling the same Christian names creates a problem for the researcher :-)

I would like any information at all about Jane Mogridge's parents and siblings, etc... and evidence of when and where she was born and baptised, as well as when she died.

She may have died soon after the birth of her first child, or around 1800, or later. (Her husband Peter Sharland died in 1829 in Cheriton Fitzpaine.

I notice that some others have referred to Mogridges in Cheriton Fitzpaine, but not to Jane.

There was a Richard Mogridge owning or renting land in the region in 1798, but I don't know of any relationship to Jane.
