This is interesting, Dave...

1861
Civil Parish: Hockworthy
County/Island: Devon
RD: Tiverton
Sub-RD: Bampton
ED: 8
RG 9; Piece: 1482; Folio: 82; Page: 12

Mary Frost 77
Sarah Ferris 69 [Sister]
Frances E Ferris 32 [Niece]

So in 1841 that looks like Frances aged 12y

Very interesting and thanks to you both,Frost is a name i stumbled upon when doing my research so i think that makes sense.

The Frost family were very big in that local area at one time.

Puzzling that i cannot find who Henry(and Elizabeth) is related to,Hockworthy being such a small place he must be part of the family.
I am going to the village soon for a visit so maybe a visit to the local church may bear dividends.

Big thanksO0

As I understand it the alternate names are submitted by members. If you blow the image up as far as possible, I can't see the first digit being a 4. I think its either 10 or 12, with an uneven mark across it

They are submitted by members; on this occasion it looks right, it certainly isn't a 4, the 4 of Sarah's age above is completely different.

I've had a newsletter from The National Archives about the launch of a dedicated First World War portal which is bringing together all their FWW resources in a single place. There are podcasts and videos about the war and people's experiences; I've had a quick look to see what's there and it's all very good and informative ... reminiscences, poetry to name but two. There is also a programme to digitise more of their records so that they can be consulted online.

Highly recommend this site ... TNA.

Jay. :)
