Subject: [DEV] STOOKE family in Dawlish
I am trying to link together a number of STOOKE families, and wonder if
anyone can suggest any way of possibly seeing the parish registers for
Dawlish, where some members of the families lived.
I am especially interested in the period 1770-1790.
The registers do not seem to have been filmed by the LDS, and also do not
to be entered in FreeReg -- are there any other possibilities?
