Rosher and Hindle Families

Some of these papers were inherited from my grandfather Lionel James (via my uncle Bob James); others were discovered in the summer of 2010, at "Challonsleigh", Whitchurch, Tavistock, Devon, which was the home of my grandfather's nephew Eric Trevenen James. The current catalogue is incomplete.
