it’s Sunday, so this must be….

Today I am reviewing the remaining records in the areas that surround Newton Abbot, Exeter and Doddiscombsleigh. There are 8 stops which include Churston Ferrers, Brixham, Wolborough, Coffinswell, Stokeinteignhead, Teigngrace, Ashcombe & Mamhead. Note that Wolborough is actually the Parish that contains Newton Abbot, so those records continued to bolster our knowledge there.

The cluster accounts for 31 of the remaining 613 records. These are the remaining locations in and about the Dart, Stoke and Exe Rivers along the East Southeastern coast of Devon.

As I depart the vicinity, I’m struck at just how important this area is to the Babb Surname. I started this project with 3119 records for all of Devon (I had to go look it up. LOL). There are now only 582 records left and I’ve scarcely left this area.

Thus begins my final sweep of these early Devon birth, death and marriage records. I’ll be moving in a counterclockwise motion around Dartmoor National Park.

The earliest record in the group is from the Marriage of Robert Babbe to Agnes Langford on New Year’s Eve 1629 in Mamhead, Devon.

There wasn’t much of interest left in this area as I tied up the last loose ends. Most of the locations were virtually unknown to the tree. Yet, they help to complete the record.

I’m heading North and East for me next stop! See you soon!
