Looking for a Richard Norman born Devon 1775/6 threw up 2, the Berrynabour one and one born Ilfracombe, both with a father John. The Berrynarbour one I think is more likely, his mother was Joanna nee Hole, whose father was a Richard, so the name could have come from him. the 1774 one for Ilfracombe would have been 13 in 1887when he was signed up. His parents married in 1774. |
Might be worth checking out the surname Hole, in case there is a family connection to the sea there too.
Hope this helps.
