red mail LOST A FEMALE.
I am looking for a fisher who wed a barrett in the 1800's or earlier or a little later. Sorry to be so confused , my dad had a gran who he called granny fisher. Because there was confusion with the barrett surname. His dad had wed a lady with the same surname so all they had , had to do was change the end barratt to barrett. And so the gran kept her maiden name, so that when she visited they knew which gran would arrive...My grandfather (dads dad) was in the royal navy,and when he was due to retire was sent to be a coastguard in wales, then salcombe devon, then back to the royal navy,to finish his time. That was the 1st.Ww. I dont know if the fisher lady died before the war or during. But does anyone have a stray fisher/barrett. I have a photo of her. And she is very pretty. By the way my grandfather lived in ottery st mary before he joined the navy...

red mail PROVO
I'm wondering if anyone knows anything of, or has ever heard of, the Provo family that lived in Dartmouth, Devon? The family rumour is that they fled to England from France during the French Revolution, and that they were rather rich. My grandmother can remember her second great aunt Louise/Louisa Provo, but I have never come across this person in all of my research ??? I'm really interested in tracing my French roots. I know that French middle names like Lefevre and Minett were common in our family, so I believe the French connection does exist; but I've no idea when or where it comes in. My guess is that it would appear towards the late 1790s. I would be really grateful for any insight or advice at all. Thank you
