red mail Edgcombe / Edgecombe in Modbury
I have recently taken the plunge and am attempting to trace my family (Edgecombe/Edgcombe) back as far as possible. They seem to be based mainly around Modbury in Devon. I have had some success in that I have managed to go as far back as 1800 but have come unstuck beyond that. To give you a brief line, working back starting with my great great grandfather: Thomas Henry Mason Edgcombe b1862, Modbury, Devon. m.1885 Susannah Watkinson b.1856 >>>>>Richard Edgcombe b1824, Modbury, Devon. m.1848 Susan Blatchford b.1825 and m.1859 Susan Mason Ball b.1832 >>>>>John Edgcombe b1791?, m. Mary? Devon? As you can see I have become lost at this point (at John) as any available records i have found have made it even more confusing.

red mail Letter From Modbury 1595
From Calendar of Cecil Papers Vol 13 MODBURY LETTER DATED AT 539 1595/08/15 Ry Champernoun to Sir Robert Cecil 1 p 73.24 RE a youth of C's that sings - ref to an unfounded rumour that C has forced thisyouth,with others to be dealt withal against the law,to be "gellt" gelded which rumour being spread is most disgraceful....
My inlaws, Kerswill, came from Devon, where at one time their family owned Modbury, Hach, and a few other places. My father-in-law, Frederick Ernest Kerswill, a second son, was born in Plymouth in 1910. The family owned a cottage in Modbury, and his grandfather drove a coach with a modified version of the coat of arms on the door - the label on this 'new issue' of the arms had red vertical stripes on the 'label' across the top third of the arms.
