There has been some discussion off-line about whether Devon or Devonshire should be used as the county name and the initial conclusion was to use Devonshire.  However, more investigation into the form used in other sources such as the Wikipedia, GENUKI, or the Family History Library Catalog, shows that they all use Devon.  Therefore, I intend to change Devonshire to Devon on many of the pages in the FS Wiki, and to use the category of Devon.  If you have any feelings about this one way or the other, please add your comments to this discussion.  Bakerbh 18:23, 1 July 2009 (UTC) 

I agree that Devon should be preferred place name. --CottrellS 10:46, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
