My ancestors (HAMLYN) were in the Widecombe-in-the Moor area at least from the 1400's. My ggf (Charles Blanchford HAMLYN) was born in Moretonhampstead, Devon, England in 1828 and emigrated to Newfoundland in the late 1840's. Then in the early 1900's, my grandfather (Charles HAMLYN) brought his family to the Boston, Mass. area.
My husband and I visited the Doccombe Mill in Moretonhampstead in the 1880's. I was thrilled to visit the birthplace of my ggf and to stay in the B&B over the stable area.
