I'm actually interested in a notice left by your son Gordon.I also have Perrett Roots in Staverton, Devon. My line is like this.John Perrett b. about 1766 m. Joan Searle in 1793 and had kids Mary 1793, John 1795, George 1798 and Elizabeth 1802. Does any of this sound familiar?
PS...another Perrett from this line moved to Australia.The Mary above b. 1793 m. Thomas Perryman and their son Thomas Perryman is the one in Au.
