Re: Brick Wall - William DOWN(E)
Have been reviewing messages which I have endeavoured to help with, now I have access to Ancestry via my library membership. Put in William Downe and he came up straightaway, someone from the Cross family has done research, and has him married to Jane, with his father being Josias Downe and mother Martha Philip and born in Milton abbot.
Siblings are Simon Downe 1788-1855 Elizabeth born 1791 and Ann 1797. So not sure which line the Cross family come in on.
They have William ad Janes children as John 1808-1881, Hannah 1811 1866 Sarah 1814-1817 Elizabeth 1816=1817 William 1821-1825 and ann1824-
Is this a line you have explored?
Stay safe, good luck.
