The Havill Family Exeter and Plymouth Home Page
Back to the main Havill page
Up to the middle of the 18th century only a limited number of records are found from within the parishes constituting Exeter, although there is some evidence to suggest that Havills had lived in the city since medieval times.

Many, if not most of these parishes tend to suffer from the loss of some of the earlier records which together with the non availability of material from the Commonwealth period (1649-60) and later has made it difficult to identify any meaningful pattern of family records for this period.

After 1750, the situation began to improve, and it is possible to establish normal family records patterns for the city.

The records for Plymouth and small outlying parishes such as Broadhempston and Uffculme are `one-off` events in so much as a few records appear for a limited period of years prior to the Commonwealth period and then cease, begging the question as to why the line disappeared?

The page map below is not yet complete but we felt it was worthwhile to show the work as it progresses. There will be further updates.
