Good morning Devon:
I have been reading all the mail for the last week or so which has proved very
interesting and instructive.
My name interests are in the Ottery St.Mary, Buckerell, Honiton, Awliscombe,
Bickleigh area and are:
My interest is mainly DYER. As this name appears to be pretty commonplace in
Devon I shall probably be inundated with replies - Hope! hope!
Is there a Sidbury in Devon?
My g5-grandmother's first name was Tryphena. An unusual name. Anyone else come
across that name?
Tryphena POTTER married John DYER in 1763 in Ottery St. Mary. John's professon
was a Mason.
Their son John DYER (baptised 1765 in O.St.M) married Mary ????
Thomas DYER (John and Mary's son) (bap 1785 Buckerell) married Ann Webber in
Awliscombe in 1806.
John DYER (son of Thomas and Ann) (bap 1816 Buckerell) married Amelia Welsman in
Honiton 1841. Their daughter Emily married a ROWSELL.
John DYER (son of John and Amelia) (bap 1854 Awliscombe) married Mary Ann YEWE
(bap Bickleigh 1850). Marriage Sidbury in 1876. Is there a Sidbury in Devon
or is that Surrey? They moved to Surrey at some point.
Many thanks, in advance, to anyone who has anything to add to the above.
Betty from Montreal.
