PARISH index 1841 CENSUS index HELP

South Hams, Devon - Genealogical Information Resource.


Welcome to a collection of indexes & 1841 census transcripts, plus a free lookup service in other censuses
& church registers of all the parishes in the ANCIENT South Hams area of the County of Devonshire.

The resource material available, with a few exceptions, relates only to those parishes in the area
that I've defined as being bounded by Dartmoor, the sea & the Rivers Erme & Dart - MAP here

Recent additions :-
7 Nov - Due to ill health the lookup service is temporarily suspended.
. . . . . . "Ask Ray" will not be answered.
. . . . . . An alternative will be made available in due course.
If you still can't find what you need and I can't help, you should post your query to the SOUTHHAMS Mailing List details here
Alternatively have your requirements added to the Surnames Interests page - here

My own collection of some 11,400 individuals, mostly grouped into families, may be found here
Though including many non-Hams people, it is easily searchable for any that may interest you.

NOTE: All transcripts and indexes are verbatim with spellings as in the original documents.Only abbreviated forenames have been
expanded to aid searching. Best guess = "?" has been used if the original is unclear or just indescribably awful!
