    Oliver is from very near to Barnstaple. Umberleigh in fact don't suppose others from Devon or Barnstaple used the same breeder as me? Would be funny to know some of Oliver's relatives!! lol

    I used to work in Teignmouth years ago...in a different life...(last century)
    I would hazard a fair guess that any dog bred in the west of England is related via the Homerbrent kennel.

    Bubbles has lots of Homerbrent behind her from Paternal Grandfather backwards if you know what I mean. She also has a heavy Vanitonia presence.

    Rebel has Homerbrent on his Maternal Great Grandparents' side, but a much bigger Tregarron/Chrisandawn/Manaking mix running throughout, with some Dubourg thrown in for good measure. His Gt, Gt, Gt grandfather was Tregarron Trafalgar, a dog who I watched ringside from a puppy and absolutely adored. I was thrilled one day when Betty Dowd asked me to take him into the BOB challenge and I can honestly say I have never handled a dog quite like him, until I got Rebel that is!

    Holly Poppet was sired by Homerbrent Branscome crossed with Underknoll, with Homerbrent behind her too, but Vanitonia crops up there in several line breedings.

    Getting back on track to what Sins originally said, I think the heavy Homerbrent influence in West Country dogs goes all the way back to the great Homeranne Caption, one of the most influential sires of all time. He was stunning and lived to a grand healthy old age.

    Further to many Cavaliers coming from an area where there was a notable breeder (such as Homerbrents in Devon), when I had a holiday in the Scottish borders a few years ago, I noticed an unusual number of Blenheims, and wondered if this was the long-distance influence of the Pargeter kennels, which were in the area. People who long ago bought a Pargeter Cavalier may have continued to keep the breed, even if these days the Pargeter connection is distant.

    Oliver is a Yorkshireman, Aled comes from somewhere in Wales via Many Tears. My first two Cavaliers were South African, with a strong UK background, and the third one came from Staffordshire.

    Flash & his parents (Holly & Blitz) were born in Hot & Humid Texas! (USA).

    Holly had parents from Ireland & the Slovak Republic. Her pedigree has several Biely demon dogs behind her as well as Moorefields & Glencross cavaliers. Some other names behind her include: Immenhof's Donovan, Immenhof's Movie Star, Bonema Gold Sovereign for Choya... and if you go far enough back (5 generations) she has a "Glenwood Dallas Texas". LOL I can't find much on "Glenwood Dallas Texas" but I wonder if he was from Dallas, Texas? Probably not, but I find it funny that Holly was born to a breeder not to far from Dallas, Tx.

    Although Blitz was also born to a breeder in Texas (USA) his parents were both from Ireland. He has a few Homaranne and Trenaul cavaliers behind him.
