Townsends of Longhope, 1700s (General)

Hi I just wondered if Sarah had been in service in Avening and that John Townsend was born in that area and then the two moved back to Longhope after getting married but it is pure guess work. The John Townsend 1758 (son of John and Mary Watkins) died in Longhope aged 55. John and Sarah moved to Brockhampton sometime after 1789 and were buried in the old church there. John died in 1829. It is just so strange that there were two John Townsends in Longhope at the same time. 1758 John Townsend was married to Anne Sterry I think. James Townsend who is my direct descendent married mar Anne Burley in Newland church in 1815.
