BAYLY INDEX Ann nee Bayly & John Harris

ANN BROWING BAYLY  (daughter of John and Ann Bayly) was born 16 Jan 1810 in Clawton, Devon, and died 10 Oct 1869 in Buchfiede, Sth Australia. She married Ann and JOHN HARRIS  married by special licence 22 Nov 1832 in Clawton, Devon - Anne's brother Thomas Bayly was a witness. John was the son of JOHN HARRIS (1763 1862) and MARGARET BATE and was born 03 Apr 1802 in Ashwater, Devon. He was a Yeoman Farmer who had bought the Freehold of an 87 acres farm called Middlecroft in Ashwater where his ancestors had lived for many years. TB was rife in England in those days - John contracted it and left the family home to die in a small cottage nearby on 3rd Jul. 1846. He had previously made his will in 1842 - however this was not proved until 1st March 1849. The reason for his delay was possibly because the farm had to be sold  and Ann, left a widow with a young family, remarried in 27 Sep. 1847 to William Gregory and they all emigrated on the "David Malcolm" to Australia and contact took time.. so the years rolled by.
