Earliest known date for Oldest Ancestor
Origin of Family Group
Berrynarbor, Devon, England

This is my family tree (Ross Gammon), and it was originally traced back from me (born in Victoria, Australia in the 1960s), via my grandfather (Francis Gammon) who was born in Reading, Berkshire, England (in 1899) and moved to Australia in 1926. His father was Edwin Alfred Gammon who was born in Ilfracombe, Devonshire, England but was married in London, lived in Reading, Berkshire, then Portsmouth, Hampshire before retiring in Poole, Dorset, England. His father (Richard Gammon) farmed on Lower Trayne (also spelt Lower Traine) in Ilfracombe, Devonshire. His father (also Richard Gammon) farmed in Berrynarbor, Devonshire, England.
I have traced this family back further (when I started my family history research), but my Gammon One Name Study database has not yet been extended to include the relevant Parish Registers.
