With regards to Alford's coming from Devon or Cornwall. Do you know where your parents were born ? I have been tracing my Alford's who come from Wiltshire, Englnad, which is next to Somerset and Dorset, and not that far from Devon and Cornwall. When I first started, I was orginally led to believe that my relatives came from Plymouth, Devon, but this turned out to be where the ship had sailed from when leaving for Australia. It was not until I started to obtain Birth, Death & Marriage certificates, that I found that they actually came from Upton Lovell, Wiltshire. I have been able to get alot of information through the Mormon Church LDS. If you can give me some more details, I would be happy to help anyway I can. Jan Alford-Jarvis.
