Roger Westcott of Thorverton
« on: Wednesday 16 May 18 16:38 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Roger is given as the father of Joseph Westcott, christened in 1714 in Devon. Other than this I know nothing of him.

While speaking of Rogers, I'm also looking for a Roger Hatherly, also in Thorverton. He married Grace Roberts in 1713. I've been unable to find information on either.

I'd appreciate any help!

Adam

Only the BTs survive for Thorverton at that time and they are full of gaps, but they do show a Roger Westcott baptising children Richard in 1667 and Thomasin in 1670. So it's quite possible he had a son called Roger in one of the missing years.
