South Zeal - Are We From Here ?

In the 17th and 18th Century the church parish records though out England , which have been transcribed, indicate that Wonnacott is a very rare name and seldom is found except in Devonshire and Cornwall.

The areas in Devonshire which indicates a high number of Wonnacotts centre around the north of Dartmoor. The centre of interest is around South Tawton & South Zeal where there are many gravestones bearing the name.

The parish church of South Zeal is built in the picturesque village and consequently does not have a significant graveyard. The burials are mainly noted at South Tawton, the next village. These pictures show South Zeal village with its church.
