Many of my ancestors lived in Bristol and surrounding areas before my paternal grandparents moved up to Birmingham and I wondered if anyone knows of any local history sites of that area that are as good as this one.
I haven't got a Joan Govier in my list. My great great grandfather was Isaac Govier of Pitminster near Taunton. There were quite a few Goviers in that area and into Devon. There is a good reference to different branches of Goviers at: https://www.huxtable.org/govier/Govier.html
