Re: John Channing 1841 Torquay, England
My Channings cam from roughly the same area.
William Loxley Channing (his father was Willian Channing Pendrick (mother name I don't know) married Elizabeth Lilian Ellenberger. He was born 24 March 1888.
They had Ruth Helen (24/8/1920; Grance Mary Noel (26/12/1921)
This is the first time I have seen the name Channing before. Don't know if there is a connection. William Loxley was a Methodist Minister.
