A Devonshire Lad in the Great War, Autobiography of Frank Ellis

Gary Lewis, Australia, emailed some very nice feedback after reading our October E-newsletter.  

Thank you so much for Sending me the Clovelly News Letter. My name is Gary Cruse Ellis and Although we are 6th gen Australians my Forbears are Proud Clovelly People.  My Grandfather was Jabez Cruse Ellis who came to Australia in 1877.  His Father was William Ellis born 1821 in clovelly and his mother was Anne Cruse from Frithlestock b.1826. We are also strongly connected to the Lyle {Lile” family. I cannot thank you enough.

 Love and God Bless

 He also kindly attached The Autobiography of Frank Ellis, his Great Uncle, which is very interesting to read
