I have transscribed the full parish registers of Monkton st Nicholas, Pembroke St Mary and St Michael. I have finished the recording and research into the last of the headstones and memorials at Monkton St Nicholas, obtainable from the church, I have also nearly completed the recording and research of Pembroke St Mary & Pembroke St Michael Headstones and Internal Memorials.
I can confirm that there are absolutely no patronymics in this area. I also said that I would love to be contradicted and proven totally wrong, by the evidence of its use in at least 3 fully confirmed proven and researched generations.
The high error rate of the IGI (Family Search to those more modern researchers) goes no where near the proof required, which can only come from the use and sight of original documents.
The following from my transcription of the original Parish Registers :
Monkton St Nicholas Baptism Register 1711 to 1950’s
29 Apr 184 Mary to William & Ester Brace baptized
17 Jan 1820 James to Willm & Esther Brace baptized
Other Brace children are baptized 1760 ~ 1809, at this Parish to John & Mary, John & Sarah & William & Anne.
There is nothing that shows the use of patronymics in any of these parishes. I really do not understand the fixation of people determined to prove they are descended by the use of patronymics, gosh ~ its hard enough under normal circurmstances without adding unwanted brick walls to climb.
