  1. This news is going to help me John. I spent 10 days in Devon for the first time in 2019 researching for our friends at Brackley. The Snells had originally come from Devon. And you know what happened to my 2020 UK trip to report on it. Nothing!

    Not much about early baptisms or marriages were available on-line then.

    BTW, recently heard again from the lovely couple I stayed with in rural Devon as an AirBnB. I had coached the husband on researching his father’s family about which he knew almost nothing. His father had been killed in an air crash near London when he was a boy, and he had lived there for decades, hence the lack of knowledge.

    Thank you! Cheers, BT
