Old Branscombe Families


Bartlett

Thanks to Geoff Bartlett whose Family Tree can be viewed here.


Geoff Bartlett has kindly made things easier for Bartlett family researchers. He emailed us saying, ‘I found it time consuming picking out the Bartletts from the lists, so what I have done is extracted all of the Bartletts from the Parish Registers, which may help future researchers of the Bartlett Family, and compiled their own lists based on your format.’

Dowell & Tedbury

Thanks to Alison Somers who has sent us her research summaries for the Dowell and Tedbury families. She has just detailed the direct lines, but does have more information. She is happy to share her findings and hopes she might hear from someone who could tell her more about her great grandparents – Percy & Ethel Dowell and Walter & Emma Tedbury. Does anyone have any photographs of them?

Rendell

This family history was handwritten in 1968 by Mrs Le Roy William (Grace) Rendell.



Branscombe and America feature in the story of the Rendells, after Frank Rendell arrived in the United States in 1881.


There are also Gush, Dowell, Farrant and Lathrops in there too!

 

We are grateful to Colin Dowell for permission to publish this on our website.



Spiller

We are grateful to have received further detailed Spiller information from Jenny Paris.



Tedbury


Does anyone know who the people in this photograph are? We have been sent it by a relative, who knows that Albert Tedbury is on the right (as we look at it).

Please contact us if you can help.

Veryard
