red mail Lizzie Williams
I am looking to find where Lizzie, my great Grandmother, was buried. She died in 1933 and Lived at Dagama, Millford Road Sidmouth as in the 1911 census. In Kelly's directory 1914 and 1919 Dagama is classed under Salcombe Regis, so I am not sure which area is it. Looking on Google map Millford road is beside the River Sid, on Salcombe side not Sidmouth, I think. I am planning to arrange to visit the area, so information about the best places to look for local information would be welcome. Thank you, Helen

Charles Waight
I believe that the above was a coal merchant in Sidmouth in the 1830s, then an innkeeper in Crewkerne in 1837/8 (The George Hotel), then a cheesemonger and butterman in London in the 1840s and later had some connection with the Hop Pole brewery in Upper Tooting in the 1850s, with a brief spell in the debtors gaol in Surrey in between. His son, also Charles, died in the Charge of the Light Brigade, a private in the Fourth Light Dragoons. Does anyone know anything else about Charles (who was born at Millbrook, Southampton in 1800) or his wife, Jane (who came from Chirk, Wales)? Any information would be appreciated.
