Hi
I am hoping some one can help me I am looking for information on a William Guest born around 1811 in Okehampton, Devonshire, parents unknown. He married a Eliza Sweet 17 Aug 1835 at Dodbrooke and had four children the youngest born in 1846 at Dodbrooke. eliza remarried a John James Lake in 1846. I assummed William died howevery I can't not find a Death record for him. In the 1851 Censues for Okehampton there is a William Guest aged 40. Is it possible it is the William Guest I am looking for? How would I find more information on him

Regards

MJ Coxon :)

You could also try the Devon FHS

Or you could try and maybe even join in as a transcriber for a new project that Genuki is putting together for Pre-1841 Devon Cenuses and Population Listings. You will then help other people as well as your self. Sure its worth a try! :)

Let us know how you get on,
Regards,
Dave :wink:
