I have a Grace EASTCOTT, daughter of William and Mary, who was baptised at
Broadwoodwidger on 10 Apr 1734. She married Roger PALMER at Germansweek on
28 Sept. 1756 and bore him 9 sons and 7 daughters, all christened at
Germansweek, between 1756 and 1779. She died on 16 Jan 1801.

Have masses of PALMER information.

Subject: [CON-FHS] Thomas Eastcott unable to find in 1871 census

Would someone please help me in locating an ancestor of mine. Thomas
Eastcott born in 1844 in Kellacott, Broadwoodwidger, Devon. I have found
him on the 1851, 1861, 1881, 1891 and 1901 census - however unable to find
him on the 1871 census. Probably reason I am unable to find him is that
Kellacott - part of Broadwoodwidger is in the Launceston area of the
Cornwall census (he is not on the Devon Census CD's which only contains the
Hamlet of Ashwater in Broadwoodwidger and not Kellacott). Thomas's family
had a farm in Kellacott called Kellacott Farm - his family including his
parents moved out of Kellacott farm prior to 1871 census (as have found them
all elsewhere in 1871 census). Thus could anyone please have a look at the
cornwall census for 1871 and look up Kellacott Farm and let me know who is
residing there, and if anyone has a surname index for Cornwall Census 1871
could they please do a look up to see if they are able to find Thomas
there - he was a seed merchant by trade. Many many thanks. Suzanne King.
