red mail Knott/Clancey/Pering/Heath
South Brent, Devon. I am a descendant of William and Sally (nee Pering) Knott and Henry and Mary (nee Heath) Clancey and would love to have contact with others with the same ancestors. I have researched, in particular, John Pering Knott and his wife Mary Heath Clancey, William Clancey and his wife Alicia Nina Riordan and George Knott and his wife Rebecca Beswarwick. All migrated to Australia in the 19th century and finally made their homes in Brisbane, Queensland.
red mail Andrews-South Brent
I am looking for information regarding George Andrews b. 1783, m. Sarah ?, son of John Andrews b. 1755 and Joan Newman, b. 1758. John and Joan were married 1781 in South Brent, Devon, England. George's tombstone indicates his birthplace as Devonshire, England, 6.8.1783. I am particularly interested in Sarah's maiden name, and whether or not they had any children other than H.R.W. (Hercules Richard Wyatt Andrews, b. 1808)prior to emigrating to America in 1811. I would love info from their immigration documents, or anything else. THANK YOU in advance! blessings, Wyndy

Knott Family History
William Knott (19, Stonemason) married Sally Pering (20) at South Brent Church (Devon) in 1823. ( I have a copy of their Marriage Certificate). Their children were baptised at South Brent (near Plymouth) as follows: William 18/09/1825 Matilda 12/01/1928 John Pering 20/2?/1831 Charles 10/03/1833 George 02/10/1836 Stephen Pering 26/05/1839 Honora 07/06/1839 (Buried 22/01/1845). George (Stonemason) and 3 brothers went to Peru to work on a Railway Construction Project. Some of the surviving children emigrated as follows: John Pering (Stonemason) to Warwick (1864) . George (Stonemason) to Warwick, Austrailia (1874). William Henry (Stonemason) to Adelaide - but probably returned to England. Stephen to NZ - but probably returned to England.Sally was buried 14/01/1845. It appears that William Knott then re-married Elisabeth (?) as this family appears in a later Devon Census. William (Senior) may have been the son of a William Knott and Ann Soper who married 30/01/1783 in Ashburton (Devon). William and Sally were my GGG- Grandparents. My father was John Pering Clancey Knott. His father John Pering Knott was married to Mary Heath Clancey and he died in Brisbane 08/04/1942. Any info re KNOTT family requested please.
