I have just subscribed to this list, having been on the Channel Islands
Rootsweb for a couple of years.
Like most Channel Islanders I have Devon roots. I have some data on my
Devonian side of the family, but it is not very well developed.
I am descended from George Snell, a Brixham fisherman, baptised at St
Mary's on 31 October 1819. George arrived in Guernsey before 1845,
married there and died on 23 March 1873. He was the son of George
Snell, baptised 5 February 1792 and Harriet Ann Jefford (nfd), who were
married At Brixham on 6 June 1815. I have reliably traced the line back
a further couple of generations, with links to the Goad, Martin and Hodg
families and have a few details of my Snell ancestor's siblings (but
nothing on the others).
If there is anyone out there with an interest in these families?
