Based in glorious Devon, I am a qualified Genealogist with access to the archives of Cornwall and Somerset, I can offer research, record checks and guidance towards the story of your family, home, settlement or site.

The work I provide ranges from assisting local beginners who need help with their family trees to specific research for experienced historians and archaeologists.

Family History

I specialise in family history projects of all sizes, helping beginners and unconfident researchers with family history in Devon, and remote researchers needing a pair of hands on the ground. I examine original records such as parish, court and manor archived in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset.

I also offer family history drop-in sessions as activities for local groups or libraries.

Local and House History

With help available for both the archaeologist requiring documentary evidence and the interested homeowner, I am experienced in sourcing and interpreting documentary/published evidence of activities and occupations in buildings and communities.

Previous projects have spanned a wide range of source material for histories and desk based assessments for local sites and properties.
