There was obviously an influence in Brixham too as I know there was a Bullers Arms pub and trawlers named after him.

When I lived in Brixham in the early 70's the boys still used to parade in sailor suits through the town to church and back every Sunday morning. :)

Devon / Re: CHAMPION or BEER from Monkleigh
« on: Monday 07 February 11 20:23 GMT (UK)  »
Hello - I realise all this dialogue was 2+ years ago but..........

I have a William CHAMPION who married Richorde Wyatt in Brixham 25 Oct 1630; their daughter Elinor was bap at Brixham 25 Oct 1631. 

I know Monkleigh is North Devon, but if one of your Champions turned to fishing he  could have easily been at Brixham sometimes if not permanently.

So has anyone lost/found a William Champion born around 1600??  :)

Is it possible to access these authenticated documents?
Are they indexed anywhere?

I think you will find that until 1974 (?) the registration district of Totnes covered Paignton and Brixham, before they were moved to the newly formed Torquay registration district. :-\
