Cemetery, Houses and Farms, Institutions and Buildings, Landmarks

I hope, in time, to find out more about each house and family. Have you looked at a house history in Sticklepath? Do you have a photograph either recent or historical? Do you know of a name change for example – this can be very helpful. Could you write something to add to this page (of course acknowledging your work). I would love this to be a collaborative project. Alternatively can we link to your work elsewhere about Sticklepath? Contact shields_h_f@hotmail.com All items however brief, stories, photos or facts welcome. If you are starting research about something Sticklepath, do contact me as I have much more not yet on the website.

Some ideas about how to start a Sticklepath house history can be found here

Some further suggested starting points for a house history include https://www.househistoryhour.co.uk, http://www.tracemyhouse.com, and if you have questions after that join #HouseHistoryHour on Twitter each Thursday 7-8pm (London time) each week, lots of experts to help!

STICKLEPATH CEMETERY

The Quaker Burying Ground. Extensive photographic guide and links to named burials. Note Sticklepath residents are commonly interred in Belstone, South Tawton or Sampford Courtenay Parish Churchyards and Non-Conformists particularly may be in Okehampton. Many are now on FindaGrave.com , anyone able to add photographs of individual gravestones with a transcription would be most welcome.
