Drewsteignton OPC

I am the online parish clerk (OPC) for the Devon parish of Drewsteignton (as well as Ashton, Cheriton Bishop, Christow, Dunsford, Hennock, Holcombe Burnell, Sowton, and Trusham). This means I have volunteered to help fellow genealogists whose ancestors may have lived in Drewsteignton. I am not the official parish clerk appointed by the Drewsteignton Parish Council. For an explanation of the OPC scheme, see Devon Online Parish Clerks. If you are looking for the official parish clerk of Drewsteignton, the website of the Diocese of Exeter may help.

Please start by reading the Drewsteignton page at Genuki. Information already provided there will not be duplicated here.

In addition to general Drewsteignton-related genealogical advice, I can provide lookups in the following Drewsteignton parish registers:

I do not have copies of the bishop's transcripts. They exist for 1610, 1613, 1616, 1617, 1630, 1632, 1634, 1664, and some subsequent years.

I am happy to serve as a repositor of any Drewsteignton-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 Drewsteignton comes from my one-name study of the surname Sercombe. If you have any Sercombe information, from Drewsteignton or elsewhere, I would very much like to hear from you.
