The Ancestors of Joshua, Samuel and James Reed

A history of Relatives (Reed, Shipton, Pascoe, Huthnance, Gilbart, Meissner).

Philip Reede was born about the year 1605 in Wendron - Fairly reliable data with all credit to the IGI index.

Joseph Reed was born in 1794 in Wendron and moved to Mawgan, the birthplace of his mother Jane Hill, around 1815 and leased Park-an-Fold. Thanks to Meissner family website for additional information - See Link to William Reed (1726-1815)Will.

The 1837 Tithe Map indicates that most of the land in the area was owned by the Rt. Honourable Lady Basset (of mine fame).

Joseph's son William was born in 1839 and married Richard Downing's daughter Mary Jane and combined two farms building a bigger house at Bowghere called Gilly Gabben.

William's farm was split between Frederick Reed (born in 1870) and John Reed (1874 - 1959)into Gilly Gabben and Melrose respectively.

My father Arthur "John" Hebbard Reed was born at Melrose.
