I am looking for any information on ancestors or descendents of William SMITH and Sarah PALFREY originally from Devon England. I found the following baptisms to a William & Sarah SMITH: 6 Feb 1807 Elizabeth @ Clyst Honiton 14 Nov 1808 William @ Broad Clyst 1 Oct 1810 Ann @ Clyst Honiton 9 Jun 1813 James @ Broad Clyst 29 Mar 1815 Anna Maria @ Broad Clyst 9 Apr 1817 Anna Maria @ Broad Clyst 16 Jan 1820 Hermon @ Clyst Honiton 17 Jul 1822 Thomas @ Rockbeare 2 Feb 1825 John @ Rockbeare 14 Mar 1827 Mary Ann @ Rockbeare
Mary Ann born 1827 migrated to Australia with her parents and possibly Hermon as well. Mary Ann married David Christian Frederick Bahn born 1824 originally from Germany.
