Linda Janet Hall commented on Janet Few's group Buckland Brewer, Devon - History and Genealogy
"Another possibility of course is that the censuses for William and Ann refer to two different couples, hence the age discrepancies, but there still remains the problem of a lack of relevant burials, unless I've missed some. I will have another…"

"The William on the Appledore censuses can't be 'my' John's father as the dates are wrong, but could be his brother. Or not related - though as far as I can see, everyone in Appledore is related somehow to everyone else! But…"

Linda Janet Hall commented on Janet Few's group Buckland Brewer, Devon - History and Genealogy
"Failing dismally so far to find any other likely candidates. The only Coles listed in Huntshaw (using FMP) are the two baptisms of Thomas 1783 and John 1786 and a marriage in 1784, when banns were called in Feb for John Pitwood, blacksmith of this…"

"Northam burials list a William Cole/Coal, pauper, buried 22 March 1789, no age given. Also a William Cole 38 of Appledore, buried 19 Aug 1827, but clearly he's not the right one. I'll have another trawl through the Northam parish registers…"

Linda Janet Hall commented on Janet Few's group Buckland Brewer, Devon - History and Genealogy
"I think it's going to take a bit of untangling! There is another William Cole who was baptised in Northam 28 May 1747, parents William and Hannah, but I can't find a likely marriage. There is also a William Cole, wife Ann, in…"

Janet Few commented on Janet Few's group Buckland Brewer, Devon - History and Genealogy
"I agree the children do seem to fit. There is also Moses in 1773. Certainly needs more investigation. It seems unlikely but there are cases of two children with the same name surviving in a family. William and Ann are buried in Buckland Brewer, so…"

Linda Janet Hall commented on Janet Few's group Buckland Brewer, Devon - History and Genealogy
"Thanks Janet. This is what I wasn't sure about. The dates of baptism seemed to fit nicely - I've got William 1775, George 1778, John 1780 and Ann 1781 in Buckland Brewer, then Thomas 1783 and John 1786 in Huntshaw and finally Betty 1788…"

Hi  Janet

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.

Hi Janet

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
