red mail DAWE/WILCOCKS - (Meavy - Devon)
Interested in hearing from anyone descended from William DAWE and Elizabeth WILLCOCKS who married 1786 at Meavy. William has to "fit" into the family of Sampson DAWE & Joan BLANCHARD somewhere, but where? Their immediate children married ATWILL *2, NORTHMORE/MOSES, another DAWE, FOOT, WILLCOCKS and BLATCHFORD - all good farming names from the area. If there's a direct male line DAWE still out there from this family, perhaps they'd consider joining the DAWE Surname DNA Project to see who they match? Happy to explain further and share my research. Regards Lorna

red mail Vigars Family - (North Brentor - Devon)
I am researching the history of the Vigars family. All so far discovered throughout the world who bear the name, spelt in exactly the same way, are descended from a family that lived in this Devonshire village from at least the 1500s until 1900s. Theearliest ancestor so far discovered is a John Figures who was baptizing his children from 1612-1622. Until 1880 this village was in the Parish of Lamerton. A William Vigars, my 5 x Great-grandfather, was Churchwarden of Lamerton in 1751. In the 1780s the family were tenant farmers at a farm now called Bonnafords (then Burnafords) and another sometimes called Windsors after it's owner. The tenancy of the latter remained with Arthur Vigars, son of William until 1816. Tony Vigars

Daymond/Dimond - (Offwell - Devon)
I am trying to find out about my GGG grandfather's ancestry. His name was Thomas Daymond and he married Mary Eveleigh in 1853 approx. According to census entries, Thomas was born in Offwell in 1824. I believe his parents were Joseph and Mary. However - a lot of research has led to confusion. There are records of a Thomas Daymond, son of Joseph and Mary, who was born in 1825 in Bovey Tracy. I do not think this is the same person. This person was the son of Mary Sercombe - for whom there is much information online. Some trees I have had access to have shown both Thomas's in the same family, as brothers. Since both survived to adulthood and had children, I think this is unlikely. If you can help in anyway, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you. Julie

red mail Bissett family - (Petrockstowe - Devon)
Is anyone interested in the Bissett family of Petrockstow, Devon? My mum is a Bissett but she was born in Abergavenny, Wales. My Bissett's from Petrockstow start with my Great Grandfather, who although born in Torrington grew up in Petrockstow, his name was William Henry Bissett 1877 Great Torrington Union Workhouse, he was the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Ann Bissett 1859 Petrockstow. Her parents were William Bissett 1833 and Elizabeth Sanders 1831 both born Petrockstow. She had five siblings, Mary Jane 1860, Susan 1861, John 1863, George 1866 and Sarah 1868. Williams parents were from Hatherleigh, I have traced this line back as far as 1670 with Richard Bissett born in Hatherleigh. I would love to hear from anyone with links to this Bissett family or links with the Bissetts of Hatherleigh. Kate.
