If this gentleman were to look at this page.....

The word "virus" creates mass panic......do NOT panic !!!!

Just joined the Devon list to try to find out more about my husband's maternal grandmother & her family - LUCY GUSCOTT. All we have is that she gave her age as 21years when she married Moses EARL in November 1884 at Woolwich. She gave her father as GEORGE GUSCOTT - Iron Moulder. The 1891 census for Woolwich shows her place of birth as Exeter.
Moses EARL was in the Royal Horse Artillery posted to Exeter 03.05.1882 - 26.03.1884 - obviously where they met.
Does anyone out there have any info. about the Royal Artillery (Royal Horse Artillery) in Exeter at that time/a web site to find out more please?
If SKS could through some light on Lucy GUSCOTT & her her family we would be pleased to hear from you.
I stumbled upon the name of a farm by accident today, known now as
Perriton Farm in Whimple (near Exeter), and included on the GENUKI
Whimple page as the hamlet of Perreton. It is marked on the 1892 map on
www.old-maps.com as 'Perriton Farm'. As I am collecting all
Periton/Perriton/Perraton and Perreton names, I was obviously
My questions are these:
1) Where would be a good starting point for researching name origins of
place/farms? This is with a view to linking my lot with the Whimple
farm. (there is also an area of Minehead called Periton and a small area
in New York state too)
2) Does anyone know anything about the parish of Whimple? Not alot on
the GENUKI site...

Can anyone with access to the 1891 census for east Devon please look up the HUNT family.
In 1881, they were at Brick houses, Willand and in 1896 they were at Tiverton Junction.
I'm looking for:
John HUNT (station master)
Florence Louisa HUNT
possibly 5 or 6 children (or less!)
maybe also a Sarah PAYNE (servant) who was with them 1881
please check out this site before you delete anything, it is a

The following hoax email has been reported in Brazil. The original email
is in Portuguese; it is followed by an English translation.
This particular email message is a hoax. The file that is mentioned in
the hoax, however, Sulfnbk.exe, is a Microsoft Windows utility that is
used to restore long file names, and like any .exe file, it can be
infected by a virus that targets .exe files.
The virus/worm W32.Magistr.24876@mm can arrive as an attachment named
Sulfnbk.exe. The Sulfnbk.exe file used by Windows is located in the
C:\Windows\Command folder. If the file is located in any other folder,
or arrives as an attachment to a email message, then it is possible that
the file is infected. In this case, if a scan with the latest virus
definitions and with NAV set to scan all files does not detect the file
as being infected, quarantine and submit the file to SARC for analysis
by following the instructions in the document How to submit a file to
SARC using Scan and Deliver.
If you have deleted the Sulfnbk.exe file from the C:\Windows\Command
folder and want to know how to restore the file, you should contact your
computer manufacturer or Microsoft for assistance. As an alternative, If
you are running Windows 98 or Windows Me, see the document How to
extract files in Safe Mode under Windows 98 or Windows Millennium.
NOTE: The instructions in this document are provided for your
convenience. The extraction of Windows files uses Microsoft programs and

The chapel you are probably looking for is UPTON Vale Baptist Chapel- it is
very much in existence and is located at the town end of Lymington Road,
right opposite the main Torquay Library, although its address is sometimes
given as St Marychurch Road. It's actually situated between the two. There
is a Park Place , but its located on Park Hill Road , quite near to the
harbour, and not in St Marychurch. Are you sure its Park PLACE.
There's a Park Road and there was earlier a Park Crescent both in St
OPC (online Parish Clerk for Torquay) and DFHS representative on Devon-L
Torquay (ancient & modern) information or photos wanted.
Visit my web site at www.leaman.freeserve.co.uk for information and photos
about Torquay and vicinity including index to 1861 census for St Mary

Subject: Hanbury / St Marychurch
We've finally received the 1905 marriage certificate of James Hanbury +
Glanville and now know that their fathers' names were Jacob Hanbury +
Glanville. Does anyone know if Park Place, St Marychurch or Ashton Vale
Chapel, St Marychurch Road still exsists?
Thanks to all who pointed us in the right direction,
We're still looking for the marriage of Arthur Gill to Triphena possibly
??? late 1880 onwards.

You may remember my question re the Higher Barracks, Exeter. After everyones
help, for which I am very grateful, I wrote to The Devonshire and Dorset
Regiment, Wyvern Barracks, Exeter. I have had a very nice letter back with a
leaflet informing me of addresses to write to for further information. I
know some kind person also gave me an address but I had already written to
the Barracks. Mr. A. Cox concludes his letter "...........once you have
the records, if you care to get back to me, I may be able to tell you a
little about the Regiment at the time your ancestor served".
Mmm - I have the surname Cox in my tree..........! He sounds a very nice
gentleman, very helpful.
