Tree expansion: DEVON, Exeter 1719

My thanks to PFA member Mary Daniels who recently passed me a tree she’s been working on. This made the connection for me with another Exeter sub-tree, thus expanding this tree’s numbers by about 25%.

Mary’s thesis is that the John Pomeroy who married Elizabeth Boyce on 30th May 1825 in the parish of St David had previously married Susan Caddie on 11th September 1819 in nearby Heavitree, Susan having died on 28th March 1824 in St Sidwell.

This tree is still headed by Thomas Pomeroy who married Agnes Jenkins on 18th January 1719 in Exeter cathedral.

A major appeal is underway to fund the strengthening of the church tower and the refurbishment of the eight bells of St Mary’s. Details of the work, the appeal, and how to support it, are in the PDF.
