Re: Mysterious Excise Officer in North Devon
There appears to be reference to 'Verren, Wm' in the index CUST 47/655/1. The name apparently appears on page 135 of the Excise Board Minutes of Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1844 Jul 8th to Dec 16th (CUST 47/655). If as you say he died in 1844, this could be a report of his death and replacement.
