Trusham OPC

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

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

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

Please note that in the unindexed registers 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 Trusham-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 Trusham comes from my one-name study of the surname Sercombe. If you have any Sercombe information, from Trusham or elsewhere, I would very much like to hear from you.
