Re: John Channing 1841 Torquay, England
I have a James Channing (labourer) who begat George Channing in 1820, Tiverton, Devon. He was a shoemaker.
George begat Ann in 1848 in Tiverton and Walter in 1849 in Tiverton. Walter was a cabinet maker.In 1881 he was living at 82 Barrington St Tiverton.
Walter begat Walter in 1884 in Tiverton.
Is this any help? Please post some more details if you have any.
