I can add that the Full family were not the stay-at-type, ten of whom were
in Dartmouth about to depart for the Newfoundland seasonal fishery in the
year 1642, viz: Christopher, Henry, Jeffery, John (3), Josias, Lewis,
Nicholas and Thomas. I suspect most of them were from Stoke Gabriel and
possibly Churston Ferrers and Paignton. Also William Young was in this
group whom I suspect was the husband of Katherine Full.
And Elizabeth Crossing bn 1818 in Newfoundland is found in 1851 Totnes.
Perhaps you should cast a wider net!
