Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): May have married George Challacombe 29th Nov 1821 in Ilfracombe. I found Elizabeth CHALLACOMBE aged 65 in 1841 census. The address was Mill Head Lodging House, Ilfracombe. There is a note to say 'wife of a S????????n. She does not appear in 1851 census. No easily seen death, and no children born to a George and Elizabeth in Devon 1821-1827.

There is a death of an Elizabeth CHUGG (b 1783) in 1848. This woman has a Will - see eblow -. The executor was John CHUGG, but further details can only be obtained by looking at the Will itself

Most of the copy wills from 1812 to 1857 were intentionally destroyed by The National Archives some years ago, those for Cornwall, Devon and Somerset (from the major local probate courts in those counties) were preserved and sent to the respective county record offices, to fill some of the gaps caused by the loss through enemy action of locally held wills from those counties. The collection in the Devon Heritage Centre is known as the Inland Revenue Wills Series or the Estate Duty Office Wills. To obtain information about the possibility of viewing the documents listed, photographing them or acquiring photocopies of them by post, you should contact the Devon Heritage Centre, Exeter directly..2
