Palfrey Ancestors and Descendants
Posted by: Zandra Eastwood Date: October 25, 2001 at 02:12:45
  of 121

I am looking for any information on ancestors or descendents of William SMITH and Sarah PALFREY originally from Devon England.
I found the following baptisms to a William & Sarah SMITH:
6 Feb 1807 Elizabeth @ Clyst Honiton
14 Nov 1808 William @ Broad Clyst
1 Oct 1810 Ann @ Clyst Honiton
9 Jun 1813 James @ Broad Clyst
29 Mar 1815 Anna Maria @ Broad Clyst
9 Apr 1817 Anna Maria @ Broad Clyst
16 Jan 1820 Hermon @ Clyst Honiton
17 Jul 1822 Thomas @ Rockbeare
2 Feb 1825 John @ Rockbeare
14 Mar 1827 Mary Ann @ Rockbeare

Mary Ann born 1827 migrated to Australia with her parents and possibly Hermon as well. Mary Ann married David Christian Frederick Bahn born 1824 originally from Germany.

This is possibly William the son of William and Sarah in the 1851 census - note a son Herman:
