Roy Report 3 May 2013 02:28

Hi all, I have just started back on my search of the family tree after a break away. I am looking for any information on John Horwell or any of his siblings. John was my great grandfather so I really want and need to find out more about him. He was the son of George Horwell and Mary Ann Delany Palmer, John was born 26/2/1869 in Bovey Tracy and died 13/6/1928 in Devonport, Plymouth.

Any help, suggestions or pointers would be great. I live in New Zealand so find it impossible to go to Parish churches, ect.
