While on the early Martyns, I notice that Ann Hiscutt = Capt. John Christian then she = John Budd 2May 1770 St Columb Minor. I have found that he was probably John Turnavine Budd. I also see that A Rev. Richard Budd (Curate of St Columb Minor) = Mrs. Gertrude Turnavine 7 Feb 1744. There is also a Rev Richard Budd (Clerk of Parish) = Mrs Jane Martyn 17 May 1764.
My question is;
1. Are the two Rev. Richard Budds the same man?
2. Who were Mrs Gertrude Turnavine and Mrs Jane Martyn's previous husbands?

Hi Ding,

Same man I feel though not specified.

The Rev Richard BUDD curate otp = Mrs Gertrude TURNAVINE 7 Feb 1743 St Columb Minor

John Turnavine BUDD was baptised 11 Jun 1744 St Columb Minor son of Richard and Gertrude

Birth and then burial of last child Dec 1755 and then

Gertrude wife of the Rev Richard BUDD was buried 5 Jan 1756 St Columb Minor

17 May 1764.....BUDD The Rev Richard Clerk OTP = MARTYN Mrs Jane Spinster OTP by Licence. Both Signed. Witnesses: Thomas Salmon and John ?

As you can see Jane was single. Common among gentry to describe a gentlewaman as Mrs even when single (a symbol of her status) Same goes for Gertrude Turnavine the daughter of John and Thomasine baptised 22 Jun 1722 St Columb Minor. Looks like Jane is daughter of Thomas and Catharine 2 Feb 1721 but don't know who they are at mo. Hit send accidentally - still looking  ::)

Cheers Kris  :D

Hi Kris,
I was about to say the Capt. John Christian came from the Martyn tree but I see that you have tracked him down.
In the IGI it has 3 Gertrudes (daughter of John and Thomasine Turnavine) The first two I presume are the one person, 12 Feb 1710 & 12 Feb 1711. I presume this one must have died before the 23 Jun 1722. It seems a bit strange that she was refered to as Mrs. when only 20 years old.
I see Gertrude's sister Thomasine married John Martyn (son of Thomas Martyn & Gertrude Turnavine)
I cant see any children of Richard Budd & Jane Martyn.

Thank you for your efforts, its slowly coming into place.

Hi Everyone,
I was going through some old postcards and came across a picture of Penpol so I thought I would post it for the interest of other Martyn descendants.
I believe the picture was most likely taken around 1900 as my G mother stayed there at this time.

I believe that Penpol was the home of the Martyns from at least the late 1600s as I am told that Thomas Martyn = Gertrude Turnavine lived there.
It appears that Joseph Martyn = Dorothy Warne, Thomas Martyn = Ann King, William Martyn = Mary Hiscutt and their bachelor son William all lived in Penpol.
I think the house was sold in the 1970's.

I dont have any proof of the above except information in a few letters written to my mother by her Martyn cousin in Cornwall.

If anybody has any information on the house/ farm I would be interested.

Regards Ding.

I am trying to follow the line of Margaret Martyn daughter of Joseph Martyn + Dorothy Warne.
As far as I can see she was born in 1745 and = Samuel Martyn 22 May 1766 in Crantock. They have a son Richard b. 3 Mar 1767 (St Columb Minor) after that it gets hazy. Did Margaret die in childbirth?
On the tree it looks as if their son Richard = Margaret Martyn 21 Dec 1793 (he is listed as a shipwright of Padstow) they have no offspring. Then he = Patty Inch and they have two children:

Richard = Elizabeth Lane  they have about 9 children
John = Elizabeth Congdon  they have 1 child

I cant find any reference to a Patty Inch or the deaths of the two Margaret Martyns.

Hi Ding,

Dont know about these two sons Richard and John. I have one son born and died to Richard and Martha INCH  who married 16 Aug 1795 Padstow - Joseph b 31 Mar 1797 buried 1 Aug 1798. I can't see any others nor can I find anything on them. Do you have anything at all on these two alleged sons? I have spent so much time last night and again this morning and I cannot find baptisms or anything whatsoever further. There is a John = Eliza CONGDON 8 Aug 1835 in Stoke Damerel IGI but I don't see them in the census. Do you have any census or anything concrete? ................Kris  :D
