red mail WILLIAM NEWCOMBE 1817 - ?
LOOKING FOR INFO REGARDING THE PARENTS OF WILLIAM NEWCOMBE BORN SANDFORD. I HAVE ALWAYS REGARDED WILLIAM'S PARENTS TO BE WILLIAM AND SARAH COXFORD, HOWEVER THE 1841 CENSUS SHOWS WILLIAM AND HIS FAMILY LIVING IN CREDITON WITH A RICHARD AND MARY NEWCOMBE DOB. 1783 & 1786 RESP. SOME RESEARCHERS REGARD RICHARD AND MARY TO BE WILLIAM'S PARENTS. CAN ANYONE ADD INFO TO CLEAR THIS UP.
red mail Elston of Sandford
I'm researching the Elstons of Sandford, especially my own Elston ancestors. Would be delighted to cooperate with anyone else with the same interests.

red mail Mortimer/Mortimore of Priorton, Devon
Priorton is a few miles from Sandford near East Village and many Mortimers are listed around the area. John Mortimer, well-off yeoman d 1604 (Married to Wilmot)is buried in Sandford's St. Swithuns churchyard. His will names no children, but James Mortimer who he left 100 pounds must have been important.Had brother William (daughter Julyan) brother Nicholas and his children Hugh and Bridget,a married sister Joan Fugare,another, Alice married Gifford. A John son of godson Roger Mortimer also a descendant nmentioned, godson John Hall, also William Woodyate in this 1604 will - I need to make more connections as evidence points to a Robert starting a new branch in Sussex, marrying there 1618, who was a descendant, according to College of Arms notes.

Searching For "kenshole's"
There appear to have been quite a few Kenshole's living in and around Sandford in the late 1800's, but little or no trace thereafter. Perhaps my great-grandfather Emanuel was typical, in that he "emigrated" to Merthyr Tydfil, where he becamea policemen, and founded the South Wales family to which I belong. Would welcome any information about members of my family who lived in or near Sandford.
