Hi...Im responding to your message about the Devalle surname. My Devalle family lived in Bolton, Lancashire, England. Prior to that Wolverhampton, Rugely, Longdon, Hamstall Ridware, Staffordshire. I couldnt go any further back than that but the spelling of the name was changed at sometime from Devel for obvious reasons. My great grandmother was Mary Devalle b1869, Bolton. She was the eldest child of 12 to John Devalle and Selina and married Wright Iddon in 1890. If anyone is interested in any Devalles of Bolton and surrounds I will endeavour to help you as much as I can.
