Taylor Family - Barnstaple, Devon
« on: Friday 13 March 09 12:50 GMT (UK) »
Hello :)

I have just discovered that my great- grandparents were John Taylor and Harriet Saunders. If anyone has any info on them, it would be great. Have found them in the census etc, but would be nice to find out a little more.

Many Thanks,

Katerina

Hi Suanne,

Thank you for your reply  :)

John was born in Bristol in 1841 and Harriet in Chard, Somerset in 1852. They were married in Launceston in 1871.
John and Harriet had 19 children - so lots of descendents  :) Until a few weeks ago I had no knowledge of this side of the family at all and although I have lots of info from the census - this doesn't tell the whole story. I was hoping that someone (maybe a relative) would contact with info  :)

Hi Katerina,

Sounds as if you have made a really good link now so not much for me to do.  Mind if you have anything else you need help with post it and help will come.
