Trying to find Devonshire

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Sarah Report 11 Dec 2005 13:15

Looking for descendents of SYLVIA &/or FLORENCE DEVONSHIRE, sisters of EDWARD GORDON DEVONSHIRE. Parents were George and Edith Devonshire.They were all living at Probus Hill, Grampound Cornwall in 1901. I believe that Edward Gordon died during an air raid of a heart attack on July 2nd 1940 (though I have not been able to find a record of this yet) He died 2 months before his son (Gordon) Brian was born. This was my father. As a result my father never knew his father and had very little information about that side of the family. It would mean alot to him to meet up with his cousin or cousins on that side. Can anyone out there help? Any information no matter how small would be appreciated. Thanks Sarah McQueen, nee Devonshire
