Re: James Jeffery- birh & marriage records

Thank you for such a swift response! James (10) was born around 1881 in Chagford, (according to later data) so unlikely his father was in Yorkshire, though you never really know in family history. What I am struggling with is finding a way to triangulate information and link what my mother can verify with facts going back before his birth. It's both frustrating and the joy of the process.
Are ALL birth registered somewhere, do marriages have to be recorded? If so, where else might I look? Not living in Devon makes it difficult to visit parish record offices. The search continues!
