I have put online a letter from a distant cousin, written about 1890
from Exeter to update my grandfather's great-uncle Fred Triggs in the
U.S. about Tedburn St. Mary. Many surnames are mentioned with
information on deaths, occupations, places of residence, etc.
I would appreciate your contacting me off list if your family is
mentioned in this letter, so we can work together. We have several
other letters that will go online eventually, 1870 - 1905 or so, written
from the Exeter - Tedburn areas.

The Barnstable office of the Devon Records Office has a name index to
the North Devon Journal. When I visited I was able to find many useful
articles on the Brinsmead family I was researching at the time. They
will perform research for an hourly fee - which I found very reasonable
and productive. I contacted the archivist Tim Wormleighton (Barnstaple
01271 388607) or email: ndevrec(a)devon.gov.uk who provided a very
professional report. I do not know if they will just do a look up for

I'm new to the list.
My great grandfather, Edward James Drew was born in 1871 in Kenton, St.
Thomas, to Henry Drew (a tailor) and Betsy Jane Cann. His father, Henry,
died in 1880 at the age of 39. Henry was married previously and had a
daughter, Emma (b 1863 in Kenton). According to the 1881 census, she was an
imbicile (whatever that means).
I guess I'm hoping someone on the list can give me some more details about
Henry Drew or Betsy Jane Cann.

The definitive index for Parish Clergy in Devon is Hennesy's Guide,
The two copies that I know about are held in the West Country Studies Library in Exeter and Exeter Cathedral Library. Any of the University Alumni would also list a clergyman.
I have the CD's - 1881 Census of Canada and if it will help anyone will
be glad to do a look-up.
This has all persons living at address, not just heads.

On the basis of the dates you've given it's possible that William James may
have joined the Army on a 10-year engagement - most likely a Bengal
regiment of the East India Company rather than British. If he joined
before 1857 he would have been in time for the so-called "Indian Mutiny".
Also he may have married, fathered children, been injured, or whatever, so
there's likely to be a record somewhere - if he was an officer, even more
My own gggrandfather John EMERY was recruited at Plymouth in 1849 and
sailed to Calcutta on the "Sea Park" in 1850. At this time, EIC recruits
did about six month's training at Brentwood, Essex, before sailing from
So, if you are aware of any military connection and/or my hunch is correct
it might be useful to check the embarkation lists of EIC Military vessels
sailing to India, though there may be other records better suited to begin
These have been filmed by the LDS but are un-indexed. Check out the FHC
"India\Military Records\India Office.Military Department\Embarkation Lists"
As a matter of interest, though the EIC had it's own ships, many others
that were contracted to carry company officers and military to India, were
also engaged in carrying emigrants to the colonies.

To all subscribers to Devon-L
Whilst we all feel a great loss at the death of this grand lady, can we
please refrain from any further messages on this subject, on Devon-L. I'm
not being unsympathetic, but it is off topic for Devon-L and I've already
received some complaints.
If you feel the need or want to express your sympathy, can I suggest you
visit http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/page1035.asp the web site of the Royal
family where there is an online book of condolence.

Can someone tell me if there are two Uplimes, one in Dorset and one in Devon,
or are they interchangeable!! I have details of Colliers in Uplime Devon,
also Uplyme, Dorset. Help please.
Sad to see the Queen Mother die, the last link in the Royal family to the
Victorian age. A grand old lady who is going to be missed by everyone, but
mainly the Royal Family.

Would it be possible for SKS who is doing research at the PRO, to look
up Frederick Richard Smith in the name index for ADM 188 between 1894
and 1907? This is my Great Grandfather and I would like to get his
service number. He was a painter, so it should be in the 340001 to
348000 range I think.
Thanks to all

I extend my deepest sympathy to all of our British friends on the
passing of the Queen's Mother.
She was a very dear lady and will be greatly missed.
To live so long and be of such a sound mind, so amazing.

There is a book in the Salt Lake City library called Devon in the
Religious Census of 1851 Edited by Michael J.L. Wicks M.A. that lists
all Devon's religious communities, sometimes giving the pastors etc,
sometimes not. While I looked at the original copy, I expect it is
available on microfiche through your local Family History Centre.
