Location of Foxworthy Devon

Hello Aaron, The exact location of Foxworthy, Devon is south east of North Bovey, halfway between North Bovey and Bovey Tracy. If you have the small villages of Manaton and Lustleigh on your map then it is right next to those. I have I.G.I. list of marriages and births of many Foxworthys that took place in Modbury from 1601 to 1728. Also, Widecombe in the moor from 1573 to 1664, Buckfastleigh 1624 to1723 and many more areas around Devon. I think that one of my ancestors was a Robert Foxworthy from Widecombe in the moor who was baptised in 1600 18th February but I am not quite sure of the connection to my greatx5 grandfather who died in 1797 but I,m working on it! As I said I will try to scan in as much information as I can, with the help of one of my sons as they are very computer literate.Talk to you soon, Diane.
