Re: William CAWSE b.1815 England
I'm very glad to hear from you!
Bideford is practically next door to Great Torrington, so I think it's highly likely that our Cawseys are closely related. I'm also a Cawsey descendant whose ancestors came to Canada, in my case London, Ontario. When I manage to get all my family history files reinstalled on my new computer, I may be able to give you more information.
Have you checked out the Cawsey records on the A2A site? Here is the address:
If you click on Search A2A at the bottom, then enter Cawsey as the Keyword, Location of Archives-Devon Record Office, you may find some information that's useful to you.
