Cullompton Presbyterian church records
Posted by Adam on 17/2/2020, 2:17 pm
Can anybody shed any light on a gap in the records for the Presbyterian church of Cullompton. I am researching my Gilpin/Galpin family and have got as far as Thomas Galpin who is the forebear of James Galpin bn 1795. I believe Thomas to have married Ann Bennet in 1769 in Exeter. Ann was of Cullompton, Thomas of Exeter. All their children were baptised at the above church. I believe my Thomas to be the one who was buried in Cullompton in 1827, age given 80, therefore born 1747. When looking at the registers of the church on FMP there is a gap (isn't there always?) between 1745 and 1756. Does anybody know of the circumstances as to why this is the case? Many thanks in advance for any help.
