    1. [Dev]Closure of this List
    2. Terry Leaman
    3. I just thought I'd write today as this list, as well as all Rootsweb lists, closes tomorrow and due to time zones etc...... This list has assisted so many people over the years, and I, as one of the list admin team, would like to thank all our posters, regular or otherwise for all their input over the years. There is no doubt it will be missed but I hope, and it is showing all the signs, that the new Google list devongenealogy will fill the gap. Don't forget as well that Devon Family History Society, which is not affected by this,  and continues to index records and to support people researching their family history in Devon WWW.DEVONFHS.ORG.UK So THANK YOU and GOODBYE Rootsweb mailing lists.

    1. [Dev]SANDERS and HARDING in Devon
    2. FMB
    3. Just before we say goodbye to rootsweb, thought I'd add my interests in Devon. My gt. gt. grandparents were Henry SANDERS and Julianna HARDING Henry was born Combe Martin s/o Henry SANDERS & Mary GREEN in 1824, bapt 9 Aug 1824. He was listed as a butcher in the 1851 census just before his marriage to Julianna. However, they moved over to Swansea, where Elizabeth Frances was born Sept 1852, and Edward June 1854. On Henry's death certificate 7 June 1856 he was listed as a labourer in the local patent fuel works. He had apparently been drinking in the pub by the harbour and fell in, or, as has been suggested to me, been pushed in :-) . This was at midnight on the Sunday, and his body wasn't found until about mid-day Tuesday. The family moved back to Combe Martin where Henry parents looked after the children, while Julianna went to work in Plymouth, where she re-married to David WHYBORN from Hastings, and that is where she moved to for the rest of her life. Going back to Henry SANDERS and his parents, Henry was bapt 9 Aug 1824 Combe Martin, s/o Thomas SANDERS and GRACE. Mary GREEN was bc1795 Shirwell, Devon, nothing further on them so far. other than there was another son James who married Agnes LATHAM in 1827. Henry SANDERS and Mary GREEN have as far as I can find 9 children. Julianna HARDING as I have posted some while back had a note added at her baptism 15 June 1832 when she was listed as Judyanna vicar stated this woman's husband some years out of the kingdom. So of course I cannot say who Julianna's father was, but her mother Sarah listed her birth c1798 as Tawstock, Devon and of course, I cannot say what her maiden name was, if in fact she had married earlier. I do know that she married 11 Nov 1835 to Henry MARTIN and had a daughter Elizabeth Frances, as yet I haven't found out what happened to her, as I've been working on other lines. I will however say that Julianna's daughter Elizabeth Frances SANDERS was also to move to Hastings where she married Rufus Philip WHITE, although the marriage itself was in Leamington Priors. Happy hunting to all, Frances fmb At bunyanclan . co . uk

    1. [Dev]Re: Cornish Militia
    2. Susan Hancock
    3. Thanks all for the information on the Cornish Militia. Joy, I have all the records of William Hay's descendants, although I too can't find Arthur's baptism. Plymouth Directory records show that Arthur remained in Plymouth until at least the 1841 census, where his age is given as circa 80. I will have a look at the Lifton records to see if I can find any definite link. I think a 1728 birth may be a bit early for William if he was still alive in 1814 - although his son Arthur was long-lived! If I could find a burial record for William, it might indicate his age so I'd have more idea about a birth year. One day perhaps! Kind regards Susan ----- Date: Thu, 27 Feb 2020 22:43:57 +0000 (GMT) From: "[email protected]" <[email protected]> Subject: [Dev]Re: Cornish Militia To: Family history specifically for the English county of DEVON <[email protected]> Message-ID: <[email protected]> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8; format=flowed Hi Susan, Do you know the names of their children? I am guessing that the Arthur HAY who named a daughter Ann Rescordel Hay might be one of them because Rescorla was the surname of William's wife, Elizabeth. Arthur and his wife also gave children middle names Vivien (his wife Dorothy's surname) and Symons (Louisa Symons Hay which FMP have mistranscribed as Hag). If you can look for marriages, baptisms relating to other children they may include clues in marriage witness names and children's middle names. I have found a baptism for Mary Rescorl HEE 1765 at Stoke Damerel, parents William and Elizabeth but I can't find Arthur's baptism or other children's baptisms. The name Arthur Hay/Hey/Hea appears down the years in the Lifton registers and a William Hay was baptised at Lifton in 1728. parents Arthur and Margaret.

    2. B. Edmonds
    3. [Sir Richard GRENVILLE of the Revenge] pg 186-187 Some interesting titbits for those interested. John WINSLADE, with whom trouble began, was a leader along with Humphrey ARUNDELL in the Rebellion; and like him was executed and his lands, which were extensive, forfeited to the Crown. Some time before, perhaps fearing some such trouble in those unquiet days, he made over to his wife Agnes, a number of manors, Bochym, Tregarrick, Talcarne, Penfugh, and Killigrow as her jointure. He seems to have been a generous, good-hearted nature, just such a man as the Rising would have swept in with it. After his death, his widow remarried John TREVANION, of Carhayes, bringing her jointure saved from the wreck of WINSLADE'S fortunes with her. When she was dead, the lands were to go to WINSLADE'S son William, or his heirs. But TREVANION kept the evidence, nor would he give them up when his wife lay on her death bed beseeching him to deliver then to WINSLADE'S. Instead, TREVANION handed them over with the lands which he granted partly to Francis BULLER, partly to Sir William MOHUN and John TRELAWNY, for sertain sums of money paid down and so much income for life. Poor Agnes, the wife, was kept from knowing the details of the transaction; she was willing enough for him to be made secure for life, but anxious that the children of John WINSLADE should come into their rights after, BULLER and MOHUN made themselves as sure as they could legally. Then on 17 November 1582, she died. A full enquiry was held, gripping stuff to sort out I must say. But how true is it all!! Daniel WINSLADE is mentioned Alice KING of Talland , an old serving woman John CONNOCK, lawyer of Liskeard Then on page 188 But the MOHUNS and the TREVANIONS went on; the former till they came to an end with the fifth Baron, and infernal brawler and duellist who was no better than a murderer was himself killed with the Duke of HAMILTON in Hyde park on 15 November 1712 -- an affiar of which swift sent such a vivid account to Stella; while the latter, the TREVANIONS, went on at Carhayes until early nineteenth century they came to an end in a riot of drink and wild escapades.

    2. JOHN SLY
    3. I have to tell the list that the Cornish Militia was not the progenitor of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry. This regiment, the 32nd Regiment of Foot, was raised in 1702 originally as Marines. In 1782 the 32nd Foot was given the title of the Cornwall Regiment, becoming Light Infantry in 1858. In 1881 the 32nd Foot was amalgamated with the 46th Regiment of Foot (South Devonshire from 1782) to form respectively the 1st and 2nd Battalions of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry The regular Army recruited extensively from the Militia in the 19th century, making the Militia a way for young men who were attracted to the regular Army to get experience of military life before committing themselves to the regulars John Sly On Friday, 28 February 2020, 16:45:45 GMT, ELIZABETH HOWARD via <[email protected]> wrote: Hi , this snippet I found on Wikipedia and it also says that the DCLI are the descendants of the Cornish and other local militia .    I think as someone else on the list has said, they were  a local force available for emergencies like this threat to Plymouth , but had little or no formal set up .    . In 1779, when the combined French and Spanish fleets threatened Plymouth, Sir Francis Basset marched into that town a large body of the Cornish miners' militia, and, with their aid, rapidly threw up additional earthwork batteries for the defence of the port; he also constructed about the same time some defences for the little harbour of Portreath on the north coast of Cornwall.     On Thursday, 27 February 2020, 20:12:04 GMT, Susan Hancock via <[email protected]> wrote:  I have an ancestor, William HAY, whose marriage record of 4 August 1760 in Stoke Damerel.  He is listed as being in the Cornish Militia.  I cannot find any record of him prior to that date in either Devon or Cornwall.  The National Archives have no information on the Cornish Militia in the 1700s, but did say that being in the Cornish Militia does not necessarily mean he was from Cornwall.

    1. [Dev]Re: Cornish Militia
    2. Hi Susan, Do you know the names of their children? I am guessing that the Arthur HAY who named a daughter Ann Rescordel Hay might be one of them because Rescorla was the surname of William's wife, Elizabeth. Arthur and his wife also gave children middle names Vivien (his wife Dorothy's surname) and Symons (Louisa Symons Hay which FMP have mistranscribed as Hag). If you can look for marriages, baptisms relating to other children they may include clues in marriage witness names and children's middle names. I have found a baptism for Mary Rescorl HEE 1765 at Stoke Damerel, parents William and Elizabeth but I can't find Arthur's baptism or other children's baptisms. The name Arthur Hay/Hey/Hea appears down the years in the Lifton registers and a William Hay was baptised at Lifton in 1728. parents Arthur and Margaret.

    3. Susan, Firstly Rootsweb is about to be turned-off apart from the archives. Most of the users have moved to google groups [email protected] . You may want to contact Cornwall's Regimental museum https://bodminkeep.org/ There is not much on the website but they should include the militia. At the time the militia were a reserve force rather than a Dad's Army. They could act as police, man garrisons where the regular regiment where posted elsewhere and even go overseas to reinforce a regiment that had suffered heavy losses. 1760 was in the middle of the 7 Years' War. I did read somewhere that Devon, being part of the Duchy of Cornwall at that time, may have been part of the Cornish militia. I have seen in other parts of the country 2 or 3 militiamen being married on the same day.
