I am the online parish clerk (OPC) for the Devon parish of Ashton (as well as Cheriton Bishop, Christow, Drewsteignton, Dunsford, Hennock, Holcombe Burnell, Sowton, and Trusham). This means I have volunteered to help fellow genealogists whose ancestors may have lived in Ashton. I am not the official parish clerk appointed by the Ashton Parish Council. For an explanation of the OPC scheme, see Devon Online Parish Clerks. If you are looking for the official parish clerk of Ashton, the website of the Diocese of Exeter may help.
Please start by reading the Ashton page at Genuki. Information already provided there will not be duplicated here.
In addition to general Ashton-related genealogical advice, I can provide lookups in the following Ashton parish registers:
Please note that before the starting date of my indexes (which I am extending over time) I can only help you if you have a rough idea of the date of the event you are asking for. (Within a year or two is good enough.) I am also happy to serve as a repositor of any Ashton-related genealogical information that you would like to make available to others. I will be adding more information and resources to this page over time.
My email address is listed at the top and bottom of this page. I look forward to hearing from you and will try to help if I can.
My personal interest in Ashton comes from my one-name study of the surname Sercombe. If you have any Sercombe information, from Ashton or elsewhere, I would very much like to hear from you.
