In respect and memory of Jeanne Brooks. The above information was researched by Jeanne, see photo below, who passed away on 19th March 2007. Although not a native of Devonport, when she came here to live Jeanne adopted us with full passion; our local history was a subject she loved, generously giving up her time and volunteering to explore our history for local projects.
