Roger Northcott/e Morchard Bishop
Posted by Sue on 6/12/2016, 3:11 pm
I have an ancestor (Roger Northcott/e) who is mentioned in the Court Book of Lapford Manor 1650/2. I believe he was listed as being a Reeve. He is also listed in the 1641 Devon Visitation for Morchard Bishop area, so I have calculated that he must have been at least 18 at that time. I cannot find a birth for him anywhere, but have found an Oxford University, Exeter College, Alumnii listing a Roger Northcote, Paup.Schol who was born in 1590. I realise not all parish records are available yet. They can provide no other information except he would have waited on other pupils. Does anyone know if Exeter College in Devon had special arrangement with Oxford at that time? Or know of any archives which may give me more info on him please?
