In Reply to: PALKs of Ashburton. MPs for Devon etc by Brenda Cox of 75

Hi Brenda
The Robert Palk who married Mary Carrington was the great nephew of Sir Robert Palk of Haldon. Robert and Mary are my gt.gt.grandparents. Robert's grandfather, Walter Palk, was the brother of Sir Robert.
Robert died in Ashburton in 1848. His son, also Robert Palk, married (1) Jane Smerdon and emigrated to Australia in abt.1853, taking his mother Mary with him. He returned to England in abt.1875 and married (2) Anne Sophia Helmore and the couple emigrated to South Africa. They are my gt. grandparents.
I shall be interested to hear what your connection is to this family.
Stella (Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England)
