I am the online parish clerk (OPC) for the Devon parish of Holcombe Burnell (as well as Ashton, Cheriton Bishop, Christow, Drewsteignton, Dunsford, Hennock, Sowton, and Trusham). This means I have volunteered to help fellow genealogists whose ancestors may have lived in Holcombe Burnell. I am not the official parish clerk appointed by the Holcombe Burnell Parish Council. For an explanation of the OPC scheme, see Devon Online Parish Clerks. If you are looking for the official parish clerk of Holcombe Burnell, the website of the Diocese of Exeter may help.
Please start by reading the Holcombe Burnell page at Genuki. Information already provided there will not be duplicated here.
In addition to general Holcombe Burnell-related genealogical advice, I can provide lookups for Holcombe Burnell people in the following resources:
Please note that except for the indexed date ranges (which I will be adding to 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 Holcombe Burnell-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 Holcombe Burnell comes from my one-name study of the surname Sercombe. If you have any Sercombe information, from Holcombe Burnell or elsewhere, I would very much like to hear from you.
