red mail John Hayes Coastguard
Hi I am researching John Hayes who live in Little Bicton Place from abt 1841. He was Married to Margaret and according to the I.G.I they were born & married about 1833 in Little Bicton, but according to the censuses (1841-1891) they both came from Ireland(no county given. The family moved to Shaldon and live at Riverside. Between 1852-61 the family moved to Hoose, (Now Hoylake, Wirral). They had 7 children John, James, William, Margaret, Ellen, Mary & Catherine all born between 1837-1852. When the family moved to Wirral the three boys stayed (I presume as their names do not appear in 1861 with their parents only the girls. I may have found William's marriage to a Ada Jennetta Carr in East Stonehouse in 1870 which I have not confirmed. William's occupation is given as mariner, no sign of John or James. Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

She was apparently born in North Shields, and another family name was possibly Angus. Has anyone come across them in their research.

I have, so far, got back as far as John Prouse b. 1785; Littleham, Exmouth, who married Jane Acland b. Sept 1785; Littleham, Exmouth. I am particularly interested in any info about this John Prouse's parents & further back. The line I have traced through to my mother-in-law is through their son, Richard (b.Nov 1822, Littleham, Exmouth). I know this branch of the Prouse family lived in this area for at least 150yrs.
