Oct 8: Guest Speaker from England on the Bible Christians from Devon to Northumberland & Durham

We are excited and honoured to host Dr. Janet Braund Few on her cross-Canada tour at our Oct 8 meeting where she will present Faith, Fish, Farm & Family - Immigration from North Devon 1830-1900

Port Hope-Cobourg became the cradle of the Bible Christian movement in Canada due to missionaries from Devon. Dr. Few is a "rockstar genealogist", historical interpreter ("Mistress Agnes") and author from Exeter, England whose PhD thesis studied communities in North Devon and their migratory patterns.
