Welcome to www.speare.ino & .org.uk. This web site was set up
over 4 years ago to provide members of the Speare family with
information on the family past & present. The web site also has Information
places where the family have lived over the years.
I am aware of branches of the Family today living in the UK,
Canada, USA, Australia Norway & New Zealand. I also am aware that the
spelling has varied over the years, and is sometimes spelt Spear without the E on the end.
So far I have traced the line of the family that I am
related to back to Richard Speare & Mary Carpenter who married in
Inwardleigh, Devon, England on 11th August 1772. Inwardleigh is a
small village just outside Okehampton in Devon.
At the moment I know that Richard & Mary had 4 children
Johanna, Mary, Samuel & Richard. Samuel married Sarah Ward
10th November 1807 in Inwardleigh. Richard married Mary Ward 21st
December 1801 in Inwardleigh.
I would like to thank everyone in the family for their
help in putting this family website together especially Donna Fortman,
Irene Allan & Laura Henderson in Canada. Paul Speare & Gilbert Speare in the
UK & Diana Edmunds, Marcy Speare & Lura Black in the US
& the family in Australia.
