I am uploading this family very early - it is no where near finished. From information provided by Malcom GAMMON, I have quickly entered this tree into my Gramps software. Malcom lives in Australia, and like my family, his family comes from North Devon. The next step is to find Stanley GAMMON in the 1911 census andwork back through the 1800s in the other censuses.

This tree has been published as a result of a marriage challenge in Barnstaple, Devonshire. The marriage was between John Southwood and Eliza Gammon. It turned out that she was already in one of the trees that I had received from another researcher. Using all the England & Wales censuses, I verified all the information I had and added some more. At the top of the tree is William Gammon. I need to delve into the parish registers to verify William’s baptism and then I am sure I can add many more connected trees through his siblings.
