Greetings from Seattle.
I am a Huxtable descendent who only today discovered the Huxtable pages on Cyndi's List.
My great-grandmother Mary Elizabeth Huxtable (12 May 1863 - 20 Jan 1959) was born in North Molton, Devon, and died in Iowa, USA. Although not yet proven conclusively, I believe her lineage can be traced back to William Huxtable (about 1600) married to Agnes Wallonda. I have her descendent tree, but am still seeking information about her parents (possibly died in Illinois) and siblings.
I have been unable to download the Gedcom file Huxtable.zip - is it still available?
I look forward to hearing from you.

Fantastic! At first glance, your tree matches what I have constructed back to Thomas H and Elizabeth Delbridge, and probably many generations further. I will check further tonight.
In the Devon records office in Axminster I found a published article on the early Huxtables in Devon. If you have not seen it, I could mail or fax a copy to you. I don't have the exact name here at work.

Yes, the tree back to William (m. Agnes Wallonde) seems to match exactly to mine.
The article appears to be a chapter or segment " 84. Huxtable of Swincombe" in "Devon and Cornwall Notes and Queries" The original photocopy was in a folder of Huxtable research in the records office, and did not reflect the date of publication. Only after I had left Barnstaple did I recognize the connection. The article describes the lineage from William six more generations to the five sons of Anthony (1740) and Susanna. Only two sons are named (Richard and William).
>From the North Molton parish records and the IGI, I was able to reconstruct backwards from my great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Huxtable (b 1863, daughter of Thomas J and Elizabeth Delbridge) to Anthony Huxtable christened 12 Jan 1739 - son of Anthony and Elizabeth) and Susanna Lavercombe (married 15 Dec 1767). In addition, there is a memorial stone in the floor of the North Molton church for Anthony Huxtable (died 12 Apr 1857 - age 85) and wife Mary (died 15 June 1850 - age 75.)
I have tentatively assumed the connection of these two lines is correct. I am glad to see that your record matches.
The photocopy is four pages, or two double-sided. I could also send the descendents of Mary Elizabeth on a GEDcom file if it is of interest to you.
What part of Australia? A few years back we visited for several weeks while our son was working in a biology field station on the Atherton Tablelands.
