Subject: Sarah ROBERTS b 1838 DEVON
Date: Sat, 5 Feb 2000 12:16:35 +1100
Am hoping someone could help me with details for Sarah ROBERTS.
I do not know her maiden name, but it MIGHT be PARSONS or a BUSSELL.
Sarah was born abt 1838 somewhere around Kingskerswell , DEVON, and married a Lieutenant ROBERTS possibly Royal Navy.
She was widowed young, sometime in the 1870's, and left DEVON for Newfoundland, to be a companion to her aunt Mrs Elizabeth BOND ( nee PARSONS). Sarah died in NFld in 1924, aged 86
Elizabeth PARSONS was born (in Newfoundland- I think ) 10.8.1822, married John BOND of TORQUAY ( b 1805, died 1872 in NFld) and she died in NFLd 17.8.1900. Would like to know her parents
William BOND b 1794, in Haccombe or Kingskerswell, DEVON, married Elizabeth Bussell on 27.2 1823. Her father was John BUSSELL. There was a son John Bussell BOND b abt 1824. He went to Montreal, and died there early 1900's.
If anyone has names like these in their tree, or who could do a census look - up for me, I would be most grateful.
This Sarah is a big stumbling block for me as I'm trying to establish a link to another branch of my immediate family.
BALSDON, BOND, BUSSELL, CASTRO, CORDINGLEY, DUNNING, FLOATE, GOURLAY, HARRIS, HICKS, KING, LAVIS, NECK, PETHYBRIDGE
