Please don't take offence, but where is Cheriton Fitzpane?
Is it in Devon?
Answering a more general question, a good way to try and locate
places in Devon is first of all to try the listing of Devon town and
parishes, reached from a button at the top of the GENUKI/Devon main
If you can't find what you are looking for on this page, try
GENUKI/Devon's Online Devon Gazetteer, which you can find at:
This is a 12,000-item listing that has been constructed of all the
places (chapels, churches, farms, hamlets, houses, inns, manors,
schools, streets, villages, etc.) and principal organizations (banks,
societies, institutions, etc.) named in White's History, Gazetteer,
and Directory of Devonshire, (1850), and/or Peskett's Guide to the
Parish and Non-Parochial Registers of Devon and Cornwall 1538-1837.
Both of these listings provide links to the relevant GENUKI/Devon
town or parish page - each of which has a location map on it.
And if the place you are looking for might not be in Devon, try
looking under Gazetteers on the main GENUKI page for the UK and
(In fact Cheriton Fitzpaine is a Devon parish.)
I see by replying to this that it is, but as the Devon list is one of

It depends on the email software you use, but most modern email
software has a facility by means of which you can arrange that all
email containing a particular text string in the headers, e.g.
"DEVON-L(a)rootsweb.com", is automatically diverted to a special email
folder that you've designated as the one to contain such messages. By
such means you can easily separate out messages coming from different
mailing lists (or indeed from different individual correspondents).
(DEVON-L messages thus do indeed identify themselves, but not by
using up precious space in the Subject line - a line that some email
systems put rather strict length limits on.)
