The Creber Family in West Devon

This page lists those members of the Creber family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

The Creber family we are researching lived near Tavistock in West Devon. We have traced our line back to John Creber and Joan Giles who were married in 1686/7 in Walkhampton. Their immediate family lived in the parishes of Walkhampton and Sheepstor, although our own direct ancestors had moved to Buckland Monachorum by the 1750s. We have found many other Crebers living in that part of Devon, but we are not sure whether they are related because few very early records have survived. The surname is spelt Creaber in some records.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree. When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are in Devon unless otherwise indicated.
