I'm afraid there were no additional details about the death, apart from that mentioned above.  :-\

Hi there,

I managed to check the transcripts of the Registers today.  The entry reads:

Rule, Robert and Lowdie, twin children of Jo.  11 March 1634

Not much help in itself as to whether Lowdie is a girl or a boy.  However, I too think that if both children were girls or both were boys, then the register would probably have said "twin daughters of" or "twin sons of".  I also checked the transcripts for the marriage you have already come across and this reads:

Timbe, John and Lowdy Rule   7 July 1666

We then have a Lovdey Tembey buried on 28 December 1704 at Camborne.  (I could not find a Lowdie/Lowdy Rule buried in Camborne at any time.)

I would say that Lowdie/Lowdy and Lovdey are one and the same person, and that she was a girl.  I think Osprey is right about the Loveday theory.  :)

Hope this helps a bit.

Julie, do you have details of where the family were in 1871 and 1881?  This might help to narrow it down a bit.

If Floozy has found the right Hotel, then I'm afraid I drove past it yesterday and it looks like they are in the process of knocking it down.

Devon Lookup Requests / Re: WILLIAMS/KNIGHT Marriage Yealmpton, Devon

Thank you both for your replies  :).  I emailed the Plymouth Record Office and they hold the Parish Records for Yealmpton, Plymouth, and surrounding areas.  Unfortunately they don't do look-ups, so I will need to take a trip up there in the future to see if I can find anything.

Thank you for the link Graham, I will investigate further.  Unfortunately raa, because I know so little about Rebecca Knight, I have no idea who she may be related to  :(.  If I find anything which might indicate a connection to Ann Williams Knight I'll certainly let you know  :)

Devon Lookup Requests / WILLIAMS/KNIGHT Marriage Yealmpton, Devon
« on: Sunday 28 September 08 14:35 BST (UK)  »
Hi  :)
I am looking for a marriage of a John Williams to a Rebecca Knight, possibly in Yealmpton/Plymouth, Devon. (John Williams' parents I believe were Garland Williams and Elizabeth.)  The couple lived in St Ives, Cornwall, and their first known child Richard was born in 1819 in St Ives.  The last child of this couple was Nancy, who was born in 1843.  Nancy's baptism was to John Williams and Rebecca (nee Knight). 

I cannot find a marriage for this couple anywhere in Cornwall, so am hoping they married in Rebecca's home town instead.  In 1841 she was listed as being born in Yealmpton, Devon; the 1861 census says she was born in Plymouth, Devon.  Rebecca was born c. 1797.

Any help on this long-time brick wall would be greatly appreciated  :)

Cornwall Lookup Requests / Re: Joseph CARBIS

I have just found a website which appears to be a one name study of the Carbis name.  I'm not sure how to post the link here, so if you google for the Carbis One Name Society that should find it.  It may well be worth an email to the website administrator regarding your Joseph Carbis  :)

The 1861 Census shows Joseph as being born at Ludgvan, so well worth pursuing the likelihood of a baptism there :)
This looks like the burial of Joseph:  19 January 1863, Abode: The Roost, Perranuthnoe. 

The names of Joseph Carbis and Mary Bawden's children may be significant when trying to find Joseph's parents.  Bearing in mind that Joseph was born around 1775, and that he called his first child Benjamin, there is the following marriage in Gulval:
23 September 1792 - Benjamin Carbis & Elizabeth Garter, Widow  (possibly nee Uren)

There is also a christening of a Dorcas Carbis, baptised 11 May 1794 in Gulval, father Benjamin Carbis.  (She appears to have been buried 26 February 1815, age 21, Residence: Boscobba, Gulval.)
Dorcas is of course another name used by Joseph and Mary when naming their children.

Just a thought  :-\

Sorry Fizzy, I had a look at the transcriptions today and they don't give any further information I'm afraid   :-\

The only thing I would say, is that it may be what isn't there that is helpful, ie neither burial said infant, or son of.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help   :(

Hi Fizzy,

I'm not sure what information is included, but I can check out the transcripts for you tomorrow if that's any help.  If the burial is of a youngster it quite often says infant, and sometimes says "child of ...".
