Devon Social & Institutional Records

Did your British ancestors come from Devon? Search this extraordinarily rich set of records to find paupers and vagrants, apprentices, peddlers and tradesmen. Find out if they got married, were vaccinated against smallpox or got Christmas presents while their father was fighting WW1. Explore more than two centuries of social history to find rare details of the lives of ordinary people. This collection is published in partnership with Devon Family History Society and the Family History Federation.
