Sorry Rosie does not have an email,
The Clingans/Clinghams are probably the same family. In those days (pre 19th Century), very few people could write and spellings were often flawed and done phonetically so changed at just about every life event. Does Rosie have an E-mail address that I can use to contact her? She may be able to help me
link my "Clingan"-derived family to the Clinghams.

Subject: Re: [St.H.Fam.Hist.] Devlins and Clingan / Clairmont around 1856
My wife was a Clingham, She left St.Helena in 1961, Her mother died just over a year ago, Her Sister Rosie is still on St.Helena.
might have left the island in later years as their was a large Clingham family in Mossel Bay South Africa. All New Apostolics by the way.
I have ancestors who were married on Saint Helena (Henry Devlin (born
Ireland) and Catherine Clirmon/Clingen/Clinning (born on Saint
Helena) on 2nd August 1856. They had a daughter Catherine Devlin born
in Saint Helena on 14 May 1863 and registered in the Catholic Church.
Does anyone know of any Devlins or Clirmon/Clingen/Clinnings on Saint
Helena around this timeline?
