I would greatly appreciate it if someone could give me the Piece, Folio and Page numbers for the entry on Ann Littlejohns. I'd previously been told that.... 'I also note that in 1851 your ancestor Ann Littlejohns was working for Richard Blatchford, age 45, and his mother Mary, age 79, at Lower Studen in Okehampton. Ann was said to be 14.' .... and I'd like to have a definitive reference for that entry. Cheers, Bill Sydney, Australia
