Richard EAME baptised in Brixham, South Devon, connects to CHAMPION & GIBBONS.

Journal by mowsehowse

I am surprised to be the first on this site to post the name EAME/s.
I have searched the (transcribed) parish registers which are on line for Brixham St. Mary's, and I have found this to be a huge family in the area.

You can find the transcriptions at Genuki and a second set,(including Churston Ferrers,)by different researchers in Australia who have gifted their work to the Brixham Heritage Museum.

Searching the record transcriptions I have found EMM,EME,EAM,EAME,and all sometimes have an "S" attached, or not! Theses variations do not surprise me as I have found similar number of variations for every name I have ever researched. When I consider that the vicar might be in a hurry or tired, perhaps deaf or maybe even a little inebriated, and the people giving the information would be nervous, may also be the worse for a drink and probably had a strong country accent.......(Perm any 3 from 5!)

Richard (? son of George,son of Walter ?) married Elinor Champin (sic) at Brixham in 1654/5 and their son Richard had several children with Mary but I haven't found the marriage yet!

Richard and Mary's daughter Eleanor married John Gibbens in 1717.

Welcome to FamilyTreeCircles Mowsehowse.

I 'almost fell of my horse' when you said there were no EAMES on this site. I must be slipping because I have a pile of research notes on the name but had not put up any posts. I have now made a start on the EAMES lines in Victoria and have put up a few posts to get the ball rolling. I will go through my research notes and put a few more posts together.

Just for the record I have never come across the name EAMES ever being recorded as EAME in Australia.

Hi, thanks. Glad to know someone is reading these things!!
I have added to the post regarding variations, and look forward to reading your notes soon.
Anyone transported from Devon at all??
