Thank you so much for the information.
I was afraid that Ancestry did not keep records for the Channel Islands. It is a great pity.
The book you mentioned sounds enthralling and after typing this reply I am off to that great big store in cyberspace, Amazon UK (Lol).
I certainly recognoise your username as a wonderful hostelry in Devon so am assuming (probably wrongly) that you live near there.
I too now live the Westcountry, Devon, although I was born in Guernsey.
I have had a quick visit to your webpage but will have a closer look later.
Thank you again.
