Further to Jean's message, there is an account of the Battle of
Agincourt and a list of English combatants currently online at:
Newcastle, Ontario, CANADA
For those who just MAY have got back to 1415 (I wish!!)
there is an article in the Family Chronicle March/April 1997 about this battle that took
place near the village of Maisoncelles in northern France on 25 October 1415. This article
has a full list of names from top (barons, knights etc) to bottom (lowly men - archers
etc) and is based on a book published in 1833.
This book should be available in any major library and we have it here in our Toronto
History of the battle of Agincourt, and the expedition of Henry the Fifth into France, in
1415; to which is added, the roll of the men at arms, in the English army.
by Nicholas, Nicholas Harris, Sir, 1799-1845
pub London, Johnson & co., 1833
This article has that "If you have English ancestors, there is a probability (not
just a possiblity) that you are descended from more than one of the combatants listed
here". Given that probability, I am sure that many Devon men would have been there
but, when looking at this list, you have to be aware of the peculiar ways of spelling
surnames in those very early times.
