I too have been looking into relatives in Devon, primarily Gorvett but also
HORRIELLs. What I have at this point for my Horriells is from an article
(2nd hand at that from Prince Edward Island).
George Horriell m. Mary Ann Sanders, Devon England and had
Jane m Richard Bowman
William m. Mary Reynolds
Sarah/Sally m.Thomas Mitchell
Elizabeth m. John Atherley
George m. ? remained in England
MaryAnn b. 1807 (calc. from headstone) m. James Gorvett 1832 Buck. Filleigh
and then to Canada.
Supposedly the Horriell family and Gorvett family came over from Devon to
PEI together in 1840. I would love to learn more, as I haven't really
started this line yet...
Would love to hear if anyone had a connection!
