initially from Broad Clyst, Devon, England
The particular connection between sisters Ann Dunsford (LIGHTFOOT) and Agnes Dunsford (SERLE) on
generation 4 came to light when some cuttings referring to marriages within the Lightfoot family were found
in a diary belonging to Eliza Serle, granddaughter of Agnes Dunsford, in conjunction with the recent publication
of an article about Charles Lightfoot in Australia which described his Dunsford ancestry.
Investigation of these families, particularly the early Dunsford records at Broad Clyst, enabled this tree to be created.
A feature of this tree is the migration of William and Catharine Dunsford on generation 5 to Canada as members
of the Bible Christian Church. More information about this denomination is given on that page. Many missionaries
and families migrated to Canada, particular to Ontario, where William and Catharine went. They subsequently
had a large number of descendants in Canada.
Many members of this tree also migrated to Australia.
