Re: Sanders in Bideford
You will have to have an open mind re the spelling. Consider both when you are doing the research. a visit to the Devon Heritage centre at Exeter, near Honiton road park and ride, would be worthwhile. There are indexes, plus the parish records, some already transcribed into book form so its easier to read.Lots of other stuff wills etc. There are catalogues listing stuff in particular parishes, might be useful. Have you looked at National Archives site? that will tell you if there is anything at Exeter which you can see. Put both names in, separately, and see what comes up. The staff are very helpful, you need id to sign in, there is a coffee shop too, parking outside, if its full use the park and ride and walk down the footpath.
