Southwell, age 25, he was a sailor in the Royal Navy. Lucy Southwell (nee Blight) age 23 born in Gt Torrington, Devon. William H. Southwell, age 1 born Gt Torrington They were living at 45 Cambridge Street, Plymouth, Devon in 1881.

re HOUCHEN I spent a happy (1972?) Summer Uni-Vacation trawling the (original - what a privilege - my father was Rector!) Parish Registers of Fincham on behalf of a family in NZ. There were lots there. I could try to find the NZ info, in case they've got anything of relevance, if you like. Christine

My husband's family comes from Devon/Cornwall and I'm doing an ancestral chart - that means lots of Devon/Cornwall names. CHAPMAN (Black Torrington/Sheepwash) - got 1871/81/91/1901 but nothing earlier HALL HORN There should be some BEALEs here somewhere, but they haven't surfaced yet - unless I've made a wrong connection somewhere. RUSE (nr Saltash & Devonport) - got 1841 & 1871 onward, not '51 & '61 WADLIN(G) - have found the excellent Wadlin(.)com website - HICKS - RICKARD - BUNNY - GIMBLETT - OLVER - ALLING - KENSPEARE - JAGO (pretty much all in East Cornwall) GOULD (Devonport/Stoke Damerel/Morice Town/Compton Gifford) got 1881 & later, nothing earlier PRYNN (Devonport) got 1871 & later, nothing earlier COKE (Devonport) got 1871 for Prudence (Saml Prynn's wife) and 1881 for Prudence (Saml Prynn's M-i-L). COCKS (Plymouth/Devonport) but as they're mariners / RN, I can't be sure where their base is supposed to be! - could be Portsmouth/Gosport/Alverstoke - or Liverpool! - or... If anyone is researching any of these, I can (obviously) be more specific about first names. I just thought a whole essay here would be too much! Christine

Richard, Just to let you know that I have a Frederick Lock born Barnstaple in my tree.He and his father were butchers. There is also a large firm of electrical good suppliers in Ilfracombe and maybe Barnstaple called Rodds at the moment. I also know that there are still Moyse and Mallet families in Barnstaple too.

Hello Is there something odd about this thread? On the list it says the latest post is today, 4 Sept, but the last entry I can see says: Added by Debbi Says Goodbye on 29/08/2004 10:45:17 Is there a black hole? The other thing that puzzled me is when the number of posts shrinks. Does the system chop off the earlier ones or something? The same has happened to the Leicester one. Or are people just pruning out the "nudges"? Christine


Sally Report 4 Sep 2004 19:22

Christine, It's me nudging. No Black hole. trying to save space Sally.
