Hello, I'm looking for information on the branch of Hoopers that

that relocated to the Rockbeare (near Exeter) area. Please let me know if
you can be of assistance.
Thank you. Doug Bagwell
Hello all, Yes I am on a 'hunt' for information on the HUNT name!
I have traced the family back to about 1850 in or around the Torquay
area, can anyone out there take me further back?
Hello fellow Devonites: I am looking for information on the name
of Bagwell from in and around the villages of Colyton and/or Colyford and
also Sidmouth, in east Devon. There are still Bagwell's living in and
around these places to this day, but does anyone out there have and
information or records dating back in time. I have one branch of
Bagwell's traced back to about 1850, but looking for additional info.
Thank you all for your help.
I cannot remember whether I have introduced myself before and as I am just recovering from my hard disc crashing and losing much of my data I have not been able to check my old E-mails.However the Holland family from Uffculme,Aylesbeare,Culmstock and adjoining villages, is my interest and it seems the family were in and around Uffculme from 1700-1825. I have just been through the Uffculme Parish Registers for the 1st. time and before 1700 the name Oland appears back to 1563. Is it safe to assume it is the same family? Can anyone advise on how or why names changed or was it just at the whim of the Clerk? My family moved from Devon to Swindon and then on to Highbury and Tottenham in London by the beginning of this cent. and I would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in these Hollands or this area of Devon.
I'm rearching John Henry Radford born in Bideford Feb. 19, 1850. He was
married in Ont. Ca. in the mid 1870's. In looking at extracts from the
1857 trades directory for Bideford and Area (tyranscribed by John
Bishop) I have found William Radford, victualler and malster, listed.
This could be father of John Henry Radford. John Henrys first born was
given the name William Isaac Radford. Isaac being the Christian name of
his father in law and William (possible) coming from his father. Can
anyone help me with my research or point me in the right direction?

In a message dated 25/11/97 17:25:57, John Lerwell was querying the origins
of the name PINCOCK.
Not much to offer. But I do know of a Douglas PINCOCK, who is a Scot, and a
highly skilled Great Highland Bagpiper, who at one time played with the
Battlefield Band, a folk group from Glasgow.
Dear Joyce & George,
Many congratulations - we are stomach churningly green with envy. Re
Charles the Martyr:
From the Devon Genuki Page on the web:
<H3>CHARLES THE MARTYR (PLYMOUTH)</H3>
<BLOCKQUOTE>"[Plymouth] is included within the parishes of St. Andrew
and Charles; the former containing in the town portion 23,564, and the
latter 12,963, inhabitants. . . The living of the parish of Charles is
a vicarage, valued in the king's books at £12.15.5.; net income, £612.
The church, begun a little before, and completed soon after, the
parliamentary war, is a neat edifice in the later English style, with
a square tower surmounted by a well-proportioned spire. "
[From Lewis' <i>Topographical Dictionary of England</i>
A parish in Roborough Hundred, the Archdeaconry of Totnes and Diocese of
Peskett: Compton Giffard was a tithing in this parish (modern parish

I think "Charles the Martyr" must be Church of England - it was formed
by the subdivision of Plymouth St Andrew by an act of 1641 - effective
use began in 1644 although the church was not consecrated until 1655;
before 1644 records will be found in Plymouth St Andrew.

Just had a thought - could anyone tell us which religious denomination St.
Charles the Martyr in Plymouth was? Was it a Church of England, Catholic or
Thanks for any info.
TIA, Joyce and George.
Just wanted to let you know that after 28 years of researching William SARAH
and his birth, and parents, Stuart in Plymouth found our William his
parents and siblings - what a wonderful breakthrough!
Can't get over the great feeling of seeing it on the screen - and we might
add, the wonderful things that people do for each other to advance the
research. Thanks to you all who have assisted and offered assistance -
especially Viv and Bertie, who are going to the Record Office in a few weeks
time and offered to look for us.
If, in your own researches, you come across any SARAH family information,
we would be delighted to receive news. Anything we can pass back in return,
Once again, our thanks to Stuart, Viv and Bertie and all you other kind
people who do so much for people like us who live so far away.
Thank eee kindly, my dears.
Yours on cloud nine, Joyce and George.
Now I have more information is there any one who can help, the
information I have is as follow;
>From an old bible Elizabeth RADFORD was born 24 Feb 1821, place of birth
Devon, but don't know what part.
It is beleived she may have a sister Agnes DUST nee RADFORD born about
1814. There may also be a brother Thomas RADFORD born about 1817 or he
could be a cousin. The all arrived on the same ship to New Zealand 1843.
There is also a Catherine RADFORD known as Kate born about 1801, she may
have been the mother or an aunt.
Would be interested to contact any one who may have conections with this
The moral is:- Don't let a non-genealogist fill out any forms. My brother
supplied the info for my father's death cert and left off one son, and got
all the ages wrong. I have put amongst my mother's papers all the correct
info for when the inevitable happens, and instructed him to follow the list.
I this matter, I have stated my mother's birthplace as Germanton, which it
was in 1911, but was renamed Holbrook during the Great War. I am right is
