I have the following details on a James Veale who appears to be a descendant
of Walter who was born in 1693 :
(1) 1. James VEALE
Birth Date: 1720
Birth Place: Passaford, Hatherleigh, Devon
Death Date: 1770
Death Place: Hatherleigh, Devon, England
Father: Walter Veale
Mother: Jane Westcote
From the title-deeds of the property, it appears that Passaford was
purchased in 1620 by the Rev. Walter Veale, Rector of Iddesleigh, Devon,
from which time his descendants in the male line continued in possession
till it ended with JAMES VEALE, of Passaford, in 1770. He bequeathed his
estate to his nephew,James Mallet, of Ash House, Iddesleigh, Devon, England
took the surname Veale when he inherited Passaford and its estates from his
uncle James Veale in 1781. The Veales had resided at the manor house near
Hatherleigh since 1620, the Mallets at Ash since the early 16th century.
Before this, the Mallet history was that of the Malets of Poyntington, St.
Audries, and Enmore Castle in Somerset, and back to William Malet who
accompanied William the Conqueror in 1066 on his successful venture at
Hastings, and was amply rewarded for it.
Spouse: Mary HARRIS
Birth Date: 1719
Birth Place: Modbury, Devon, England
Death Date: 1781
Death Place: Passaford Or Hatherleigh, Devon
Father: Peter HARRIS ( - )
Mother: Mary COPPLESTONE ( - )
Mary Harris, 1719 - 1781 Individual Note: Apparently from
Modbury, Churchstow, or Aveton Gifford area - Stadbury apparently acquired
thru this marriage(?). Two aunts, Elizabeth and Honor, were mentioned in her
will. She bequeathed her properties in Modbury which she called Ley and
Sheepham, but which appeared in the title deeds as Ley Chappell Downs,
Chappell Parks, Cherry Hill Sheepham and Kerswell Parks to her nieces Jane
and Mary Mallet. She also bequeather her "Messuages, Lands, Tenements, and
Heritaments" lying in Aveton Gifford and Churston and elsewhere in Devon to
James Mallet (on condition that he change his name to James Veale) her
nephew, who had also been bequeathed the Messuage of Passaford in Devon by
Mary's late husband, James Veale.
There is a copy of the will of Mary Harris on line.and I have details of
that and some other descendants if you want them.
