Devonshire Folk from Australian Newspapers - BDMs, etc.

(Items that do not specify a town or parish)

Provided by Bev Edmonds, from the National Library of Australia's Trove website.
The following items have been extracted from the National Library of Australia's Trove Australian Newspapers website, by selecting from among the very large number of items found by searching on "Devonshire England". (In fact the number is so large that only the first few thousand found can be displayed and inspected, so this listing is merely a sample - it is not ordered, so should be searched with your browser's search facility.) A listing of items that identify the town or parish in Devon concerned is given here.
NOTE: Each link to the Trove website provided here enables access to an image of the original newspaper pages with the relevant news item highlighted. These links are worth checking because in a number of cases the news items are much lengthier than the extracts or summaries given here.
