If you've not already done so, try the A2A site http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/a2a/

Go to Advanced search;  enter Facey; select Devon Record Office and wade through clicking the titles to 121 documents concerning them throughout Devon.

The FACEYs appear to have moved around similar routes to the GILLs [Henry married a Pitminster girl and took her back to Church Stanton].  Their descendants surfaced in Pitminster a century later:  what I wouldn't give to discover what drew them there.    ;)

Hi Kim

I also have a family line which ends with Aaron and Jean Facey in Churchstanton. Did you ever have any luck tracing any records showing his birth or Jean's maiden name?

Thanks

Hello

I haven't looked at my research for many many months but was very grateful to have a reason thankyou!
I didn't discover Jeans maiden name though looking at my notes i think i've convinced myself she may have been a second marriage for Aaron. i did find his parents and siblings let me know if you'd like that info.
i haven't been actively researching for some time so there may be records available now that were not online 5 years ago.
thanks for  getting touch if you'd like any other info pls don't hesitate to ask if i can help i will
cheers for now

Many thanks Kim

I haven't managed to find details of Aaron's parents or siblings yet so if you could help with that it would be very much appreciated.  Did you find anything to suggest that Jean had been married previously or was it just a hunch you had?  Aaron and Jean were my 5th great grand parents so it would be great to take it back a further generation with their parents' names

Thanks again

Ed
