I am getting in a muddle with some parish names.
I am researching MUSGROVE mostly in Sidbury. Adjacent parishes are Ottery St
Mary, Honiton and Salcombe Regis.
In the 1851 census CD ROM, the census place is given either as Sidbury Ottery
St Mary or Sidbury Honiton although individuals' birthplace is given simply as
On a 1844 birth certificate the child was born at Sidbury in the Sub-district
of Ottery, St Mary and Sidmouth in the Registration District of Honiton
On an IGI fiche (copied about 1992) the Musgrove families whom I have found
living in Sidbury are shown as from the parish/town of Sidbury or Salcome
Regis. Maybe this means they frequently moved between the two places.
Can anyone help me about this muddled?
Secondly, how can I find out which libraries hold indexes of newspapers. The
Exeter Local Studies Library holds an index of the Exeter Flying Post for
1763-1885. Would other public libraries with copies of this paper also hold
the index including Colindale Newspaper Library?
