Thomas Yeo and Elizabeth Drake

The parish register for Chulmleigh records the marriage in 1797 of ‘Thomas Yeo of Holsworthy and Elizabeth Drake of Exeter’.

Thomas was the youngest of three children of Thomas Yeo and Elizabeth Pethick.

Which Exeter parish was Elizabeth from and why did they marry in a third parish? Is this marriage record accurate?
