red mail Ann Roe married to Richard Waldron
Looking for information on Ann Roe born in about 1695 in Uffculme. I have no info on her parents, but I think she married Richard Waldron and they had a daughter Ann born about 1719. She married William Letton and they are the parents of Ann Letton (more famously known as Nancy Perriam). Can anyone help me re the history of Ann Roe's parents and/or siblings?
red mail Southey of Uffculme
Looking for birth info and parents of Thomas Southey (fl. 1770-1785). Can't locate his birth in IGI, and he doesn't appear on the 1841 census. I'm not sure if he was born in Uffculme, but all of his children were, between 1771 and 1786. He was married to Joan (unknown surname) and father of Margaret (1771-), George (1773), Joan (1775-), Mary (1777-), Thomas (c. 1779-), Anne (1779-), James (1784-), and John (1786-1854). I believe that Thomas married Harriott Hope in 1805 in Uffculme (I've found the IGI record for the marriage and subsequent children, but I can't yet confirm that the two Thomases are the same person). John married Mary (unknown surname), date unknown, and they lived in Uffculme until their deaths.

My main task now, is to search for James Handford and his ancestors. There is a William Handford born in 1796 in Uffculme and I am querying whether this is actually 'James'. According to some people, it was not uncommon for the child to be baptised under the fathers name, whether by accident or otherwise.

red mail Uffculme Books
Uffculme : a Peculiar Parish / Peter Wyatt & Robin Stanes, eds. The Uffculme wills & Inventories, 16th to 18th centuries / Peter Wyatt, ed. These two books between them provide immense detail for the history of this Devon parish in the early modern period. Probate documents exist for 754 Uffculme decedents in this period; they escaped the bombing of the Exeter Probate Registry that destroyed most Devon wills by virtue of the fact that Uffculme was a peculiar of the Bishop of Salisbury- and were therefore stored at Salisbury. All of these documents are abstracted in these two volumes, which also include extensive discussions of the evidence they provide for the history of the parish. A real treasure trove if your ancestors came from this part of Devon. Published 1997. Contact for details.
