“Bouchier Genealogy 117”
2017 K Nov 01
Many ancient books are scanned and published on the Internet. I have undertaken the job of republishing the Bourchier book written by James Edwin-Cole in order to make it readily accessible to genealogists. I have not converted these pages to text format, so text searches are not yet possible. Source 7 permits text searching, but the text that is searched is uneditted. (A search for the erroneous “Eobert” yields many). I apologize for the slightly unclear scanned pages included herein.
When doing genealogical research on the Cole surname, the work of William Segar in the 1600's is a good beginning. A brief family tree of William Segar is available in Article 116. The work by James Edwin-Cole in 1867 used an updated version of Segar's work as its starting point. The result was a book by James Edwin-Cole entitled “The Genealogy of the family of COLE of the County of Devon, England”. For known errors in it, see my articles 4 and 116.
In an effort to save old books from extinction, Google has scanned many old books including the book: Coles of Devon (Source 2). Google also converted the scanned pages into text using computerized OCR techniques. Unfortunately insufficient (or no) editting was done to correct errors introduced during the OCR process. For example the name “Robert” usually was erroneously converted into “Eobert”. Such errors greatly impede text searches. I have corrected many of these OCR errors and have published a revised version of this book (Coles Of Devon) in both RTF and PDF formats. I have also created a modern family tree of Coles of Devon in GEDCOM format available at Source 4.
