Guernsey Butchers : Foote


John FOOT, a butcher of Ashburton, Devon married Jane STABB of Slapton, Devon in the parish of East Stonehouse, Plymouth in 1783. John's family can be traced back in Ashburton a further six generations - as far as the parish registers survive.

Jane STABB died in Brixham in 1801, but John remarried Elizabeth DREW of Kingswear, Devon and settled in Guernsey with his family. His son, George (pictured right), bought him a house in Rohais de Bas and called it "Ashburton House" after his father's place of birth.
