  1. I wanted to thank you most sincerely for the article you carried on the Quance family of Buckland Brewer in your edition of 7 February 2015. William Jeffery Quance was my 4th great uncle. The research you carried out has made my life a little easier as I try and trace this hitherto unknown branch of my family.
