If you are still looking at this site, could you give me Julie Thorne's email address. My family came from North Devon and a great great Aunt (Grace Muxworthy) married a George Gaydon in 1855 - he was the son of Richard and Mary Gaydon. Grace's sister Agness also married a Richard Gaydon in 1864. I think this Richard was a brother to George.
My mother's maiden name was Thorne. Although she was born in South Devon, her father came from Fremington, just outside Barnstaple
