Re: Clutching at straws
The trouble is that there are probably hundreds of Hall families in Devon or neighbouring Counties at this time. The only way I solve problems like this is to research all the siblings and connected families. This mean trawling through parish registers, obtaining certificates if after 1837 to confirm facts. You also have to remember that not all records are available on any site online and usually means visits to Records Offices.
