Devon / Documents pre 1837
« on: Monday 17 January 11 17:41 GMT (UK)  »
 :o  I have tracked ancestors of Susanna GIBBONS COKE, (wife of Edward Langman ROWSE, married BRIXHAM 1800,) back to 1603.  Initially using IGI, but verified to some degree with online parish register transcription. 
In those days the registers mainly gave very little extra information, so how do I find out more about these people, their occupations and status etc.?
Can anyone advise what records I should be looking for, where I might find them?
All ideas gratefully received................

Devon / ROWSE, ROUSE, ROWS
« on: Monday 17 January 11 17:32 GMT (UK)  »
 ::) Seeking anyone connected with the ROWSE family of Brixham. They were fishing folk, and branched out to Hull, Ramsgate and Tenby.  Connected to many other BRIXHAM families including COBLEY, NOWELL, SPARKES, DREW, JACKMAN, CROCKER, WEBBER, COLE, BRINHAM and JOB.  I have been working alone for many years and would dearly like to hear from someone else in the family.

Hi AJM - I did let her know about the posting here, and if you try Ancestry you should link up that way too.
Good luck.

Devon / WAYMOTHE and variants.
« on: Monday 17 January 11 16:45 GMT (UK)  »
WAYMOTHE and variants seems to be quite a popular name in Devon.
I have a Marye WAYMOTHE who married Thomas WYATT in BRIXHAM, January 1603/4. They were parents of twins RICHORDE (female) and Anne - bap 1604, also Thomas - bap 1607 and Margaret - bap 1612.
If anyone can tie into this I will be very happy to hear from you.

Hello AJM, I am assuming you are in Canada?
I have yet to establish a connection with your line of Hele & Turpin Rowse, but I am in touch with a lady in Sussex who is DEFINITELY connected.
She has asked me to direct you to the Ancestry board to make contact with her.
Also, when I started to answer your message I discovered that I could forward it to a friend, so I did send it to her.
I hope you manage to link up, and wish you the best of luck, mowsehowse.

Very sorry I can't help with any Cornish branches although I am convinced they must all join up somehow.  And yes, I do think Roose is highly likely to be a variant bearing in mind that most people did not write, they just mumbled their name with an accent, and someone else, quite possibly deaf, tired or in a hurry, wrote down what they thought they heard.  Shakespeare is said to have spelled his own name five different ways!

Hi, We have the book by John Street, and I have been in sporadic touch with Dr Peters too.  Anyone in touch, please give them my best regards.  Still searching after 16 years, for Grace Rowse, mother of Edward Langman Rowse (b. 1778 Totnes, Devon, illig.).   Grace left the baby in parish care and married a Henry Beedle by special licence in Totnes the following year.  Naturally the CRO does not hold that  licence in the archive.  So where did Grace come from and where did she go?
