This group is for all those interested in emigration from North Devon. Many left this area, particularly between 1830 and 1860, frequently heading for Canada. Large numbers of these people have been shown to be members of the Bible Christian Church.

Thanks for the info - I have contacted the Manchester University a couple of times and have not had a great response - I live in Australia so accesssing resources is not possible in person for me. I will ask at my university if there are ways to share resources. I will also try Shebbear College. Your work in your thesis was excellent - so detailed. I am currenlty undertaking my Doctorate so know the time it takes.
I am seeking information regarding the Bible Christian movement in the 1840-1850's in Devon. I have come across the Bible Christian Magazines which were published regularly and have been able to access some as ebooks. Where are the originals kept? Are these able to be viewed? Also do you know if records were kept regarding the itinerant ministers in this period? My great grandfather was a minister of this religion and I am finding it difficult to trace his movements during this time - I have a marriage record but he does not appear in census records. Thanks
My GR Gr Grandfather was in BB IN THE 1841 AND 1851 CENSUS before coming Down Under in 1855. Am looking forward ,very much , to seeing my ancestors village.We should be there about May 17 to 19.He lived at places called Watriton, Hombury and Tythacott. Any luck with these names? WE would be happy to meet up with you
