Has anyone any information on a Thomas Short b 1811 living in Hartland, Devon or his ancestors - even simply parents. He was married to Betsy (maiden name unknown) born in 1815 and they lived at Ball Hill, Hartland. My reserach is made more difficult by the fact that at this time Thomas seems to have been a very common choice of name for Short families! Any information very greatefully received about Thomas Short b 1811 who is in my grandfather's direct line. Many thanks Julian
