Looking for information about Nicholas Rowe b 1553 in Lamerton, Devon and died 28 March 1609. He married Agnes Fytz. He is the son of John Rowe b 1515 in Lamertonand married Elizabeth Hill. He is the son of John Rowe b 1590 and married Anna Greyville. He is the son of Robert Rowe b 1545 and married Mary Dennys. I would love to hear from anyone who can elaborate on any of these people.

I'm working on this same family at the moment because they are my husband's ancestors.

I've made a little progress but no enormous steps.

Contact me if you are still interested.

Hello Mark

I can't see an obvious link with my husband's Rowes from the Lamerton area.
Do you know where in Devon your Rowes originated and was your Benjamin also born in Devon? Do you know who they married?

I looked on the IGI and spotted some possibles in Uffculme but you need more evidence.

Hello Mark

The IGI or International Genealogical index has been compiled by the Latter Day Saints (Mormons). It is not complete for many parts of the UK because not all parishes have been happy to give access to their registers.

The IGI is online http://www.familysearch.org/ but you need to realise that the entries marked submitted may be very inaccurate. Those extracted directly from registers may also be wrongly transcribed.

The Latter Day Saints (LDS) also run various family history centres and you may find one near you.

People able to research in the UK would tend to visit the local Records Office for the area of interest and look at copies of the original registers on microfiche. The LDS have some of these in their centres too and I believe you can order particular parishes and have them there for when you visit.

OK so this is how you go about it.
Online you can hunt for ancestors going back through the censuses from 1901 to 1841. These can be found on Ancestry if you are a subscriber or Findmypast http://www.findmypast.com/
or Origins http://www.englishorigins.com/

You can also hunt on the IGI and it helps to understand the system. Please read
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatch... but remember that many parishes are not in the index or are incomplete.

I didn't quite understand your reply. Were those Rowes of Uffculme definitely yours? If so how have you reached that conclusion? What evidence have you found so far?

Hi Sue,

I know your post is several years old, but I hope you will receive this entry.

I have been searching for a Nicholas and Mary Rowe who were present at the 1624 muster in Elizabeth City Parish, Virginia, present day Hampton, Virginia.

I have seen many posting saying that he was the son of Nicholas Rowe of Lamerton, however I have not been able to find any proof. I do know he arrived in 1619 on board the Elizabeth and I have found him in some of the Jamestown records.

I suppose what I'm asking is how would I begin to search records for the Virginia Company and/or London Company. I know there must be information in the UK somewhere as to where the people who settled Virginia were from and how I might find the information.

If there is anyone in Devon who might know of a Nicholas Rowe or who is related to a Nicholas Rowe who ran off to seek his fortune in Virginia in the 1600s, I would love to have then contact me.

Regards
Joyce Rowe-Follett from the 400 year old Rowe Family of Virginia.
