I am looking for more information on Sloacombes from Devizes, and wonder if you know anything which would help.
My 2nd Great grandfather Frederick Adolphus Granville (b. 1865) was raised by John and Elizabeth Sloacombe of Devizes and are detailed on the 1881 census.It is unclear whether they were "real" uncle and aunt (as mentioned on census) or whether this was an informal adoption arrangement.His parents were Adolphus Granville and Eliza Goss of Devonport.
If you have or find any information relating to this arrangement, please contact me as I would be keen to find out!!
