Is anybody researching the Ayres family of Kentisbeare, Devon, England

+2 votes
I have done a great deal on the Ayres family from Kentisbeare back to Edmund Ayres and his wife Milthred (nee Frost).

There are other Ayres families in neighbouring villages but I have jet to make a connection.

In the 1881 Census for England and Wales, there was an Edmund and Sarah Ayres with a son named Edmund. The parents were both 40 years old and the younger Edmund was 18. He had a younger brother John 17y and a younger sister Henrietta who was 11. The father was born at Kentisbeare, Devon, England. His wife and children were born at Broadhembury, Devon, England, which is where they were living during the Census.

Do you have a birth year for the Edmund Ayres in your posted question?

Hi Frank, the Edmund I referred to was born 1806. Edmund senior I have born abt 1773 but married to Elizabeth Woodrow on 20th February 1805. His father was James I believe married to Joan Baker
Hi Frank, yes the Edmund married to Sarah was born 4th June 1840. They were married on 6th October 1861.. I have their family but I was hoping to find out about his fathers brothers. I have one down as George.
There was an pedigree resource file for James Ayres born 20 June 1753 at Powderham, Devon, who married Joan Baker 18 Oct 1775. She was born abt. 1755.

James parents were Thomas Ayres b. abt. 1730 Of Powderham, Devon who married Susanna Lee. She was born about 1733 and Of Powderham, Devon.

The children of James and Joan (Baker) Ayres were John b. 12 Sep 1778, d. 25 Mar 1845; Ann b. 1781; James b. 1789; and Sarah b. 1793.
Hi Clive, thank you for that info. It confirms that James and Joan were not the parents of Edmund Snr. married to Elizabeth Woodrow. Now I need to find out who Edmunds parents were - all good fun. Once again thank you
