Can anyone help me with my Greenings, please?

Richard Greening married Mary Cooper on 27 Oct 1808 at Kelly. Devon Record Office has consecutively numbered documents listed in respect of Richard Greening/Mary Cooper, William Greening/Ann Westlake, Joan Greening/James Ellis. William and Joan were children of Edward and Mary (Mason) Greening of Kelly. It seems likely that Richard was also, but I can find no record of his baptism to confirm this. Can anyone help?

Edward Greening married Mary Mason at Kelly on 4 Dec 1775, at which time he was described as a "sojournor". Can anyone help me with his origins? Is he the Edward Greening, son of John and Mary, baptised at Highampton 14 Feb 1754?

Any information about these individuals, or any other Greenings who might appear linked, would be greatly appreciated.

Hi BB, I take it he was on holiday/visiting (sojourner). So maybe he came from further afield. No help to you i'm sure.

Hi Julie,

Once again, thanks for your suggestion.

Despite membership of both Genes Reunited and Devon FHS for some two years, I have yet to make contact with anyone sharing my interest in the Greenings of Devon apart from a second cousin ,who I knew in chidhood, and who knows no more than I do.

It appears that the two historical "hot-spots" for Greenings were Dorset and Gloucestershire. They were established in North Devon by migrants from Gloucester at the time of the Civil War. They seem to have been traders with an interest in shipping. Perhaps the war was bad for business, or they supported the "wrong" side.

Thanks for your welcome , Steve, but I think I should be welcoming you. You certainly have been busy during the short time you have been with us.

Do you have any information relevant to my search or where you just being sociable?
