The Tovey name in the Forest of Dean (Parish Records)

? Might be an idea to eliminate any DOVEY's on Ancestry etc. i.e. someones writing etc.

Yes, and I've also seen Lovey and Torey.

My maiden name and my Mum's parents, WICKENDEN from Blakeney - have been spelt many different ways.

Then again, my x Grandad William WICKENDEN - who was living in Blakeney with his Son, on one census - went to Swindon, Wiltshire, and on two census returns his surname was GREEN (his grandmother's maiden name). Only his and his wife's death certificate gave his correct surname.
