While tracing my family I have reached the beginning of parish records
and have a couple of questions that are niggling at me.
The family name has been recorded as Whooe, Whoo, Who, How & Howe over
It appears the family association with Moretonhampstead, Devon begins
on 10 Aug 1618 with the marriage of Jone Whooe to William
Worthylake followed by Georg(e) Whooe marrying Wilmote Worthy 13 Jan
From George, with one or two leaps of faith, I can draw a line through
to the present day.
The questions I have are:
Were George and Jone brother and sister?
If so, where did they come from? - their births seem to predate parish
records and there are no obvious burial records for their parents in
Moretonhampstead listed in IGI or Moretonhampstead Historical Society
I intend visiting the Mormon's Family History Library as soon as my
health permits but in the meantime can anyone suggest any online
sources I might find fruitful?
