Peter Brooks' Rootsweb Pages

These pages contain data about three surnames that I have an interest in:

DOWRICK - a fairly rare surname that probably has it's origins in Devon or Cornwall, the vast majority of historic instances of the name being in Cornwall.

SAWLE - focussing on Cornish Master Mariners of that surname.

WENSLEY - normally associated with the villages of Wensley in Yorkshire or Derbyshire, my interest is in the strong concentration of the name in some regions of the West Country.
