In Reply to: John Vosper - Devon UK by Robyn Woller of 94

My great uncle, Fred Vosper immigrated to Australia (Perth) from Devon England in the late 800's. His sister was Lillian Vosper, born in Devon, I am not sure where, but in the Barnstaple area. Fred Vosper was the editor of the Perth Sunday Times and was also Member of Western Australia Legislative Assembly, representing the Coolgardice Gold Fields. He died of peritonitis from appendicitis at age 31. I have no idea when but between 1900 and 1918. I have a Vosper family tree up to and including that period of time. Any contact and information would be appreciated. Lillian married a William Morgan in Barnstaple, there where four children from that union, Viola, Fred, Roland and Sylvia. Lillian, Viola Fred and Roland immigrated to Canada in the mid 20's and Sylvia died at age 13, interred in Tavistock (Looe) I have a picture of Fred and Lillian Vosper's parents who where married on the Island of Guernsey but do not have the date
