Was John SIMONS father John SYMONS
« on: Wednesday 08 June 11 14:28 BST (UK) »
I have my g.g.grandfather William Henry Simons born in Phillack, Cornwall 1847 married to Elizabeth Atack . His parents,  John Simons b 1822  and Elizabeth Kestle.
I would like to confirm John's parents were John Simons or Symons b1783 and Elizabeth Wearne.
There appears to be a lot of John's and Elizabeth's .  ;D
Any assistance would be appreciated.

1851 census has this:

Reference HO107, Piece 1915, Folio 521, Page 11
Voguebeloth, Illogan, Cornwall

Simons, John  Head  M  29  Copper Miner  b Phillack
Simons, Elizabeth  Wife  F  39  b St Leven
Simons, John  Son  M  9  Scholar  b Phillack
Simons, Grace  Daughter  F  7  b St Ives
Simons, Humphry  Son  M  5  b Phillack
Simons, William  Son  M  4  b Phillack


This looks like their marriage:
September qtr 1841
Redruth district    Vol 9, Page 275

Simons, John
+ and on the same page +
Kestle, Elizabeth

Had no luck on cornwall-opc-database looking for John (junior)'s birth.

Thank you for these replies.
I believe this is my family in the 1851 Census and the Christening of John Jr in 1822. The ages match up.
Are you able to advise John Snares or Elizabeth Wearne's year of birth and parents names?
I have located an Elizabeth Kestle b.1817 with her father's name John Kestle. I wonder if this is the same Elizabeth that married John.
Thanks again for you assistance and interest.
Kindest regards.
