Great thank you, that's helpful  :)

Hi everyone, I'm looking for help to try and pinpoint who these ladies could be in my family and am hoping for some rough date & age ideas. Unfortunately they were emailed to me and not scanned that great.

Thank you  :)

Hi thanks for the replies.

I think the estimated year of birth came from possibly misreading Elizabeth Curnows age on the 1851 census, I've taken it as 43 when perhaps its actually 48? That would be the difference between 1803 & 1808, I hadn't noticed this before. I have her death certificate for 18 Jan 1855 at Halligay, Mawgan which records her age as 50 so another estimate year of birth as 1805. Elizabeth was buried 21 Jan 1855 at Mawgan-In-Meneage. So it seems she was born somewhere between 1803-1806.

The two Samuels you mentioned that died in 1859, one was the husband of Elizabeth and the other his uncle.

Thanks for your replies. The Mevagissey entry is a good fit time wise, although not near any Perrans. She married, lived & died at Mawgan-In-Meaneage.  ???

Cornwall / Perran - Where is this?
« on: Saturday 14 March 20 09:01 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone,

My ancestor is Elizabeth Curnow, neč Ball, (1808-1855) In the 1851 census for Mawgan in Meneage, Cornwall she states her birth place to be Perran, Cornwall.

I can't find a place just called Perran or a likely Baptism for Elizabeth?

Any ideas?


Cornwall Lookup Requests / Maker PR Baptism Lookup - 1810
« on: Tuesday 14 January 20 23:59 GMT (UK)  »
I've found a Baptism image in the Bishops Transcripts on which the Cornwall OPC have transcribed as Urst but I need to see the original PR entry to confirm if it was actually West.

The transcription is for Jane Urst at Maker on 18th Feb 1810. However I'm hoping it should be Jane West.

I'd really appreciate it if a kind person could look up the original Baptism in the Maker Parish Registers please?

Well the plot thickens....... I decided to order the death certificate in 1853 and guess what.....its the right one for my Mary Robinson. She died 20th Jan 1853 at 5 King Street, Deptford aged 40 the wife of William Henry Robinson a costermonger from Typhus for 2 weeks. Everything matches what I know and the informant was Mary Elizabeth Robinson who I presume is their daughter who I have only seen recorded as Mary Ann before and just Mary afterwards.

So the question now is how do William & Mary go on to register the birth and baptism of another child in 1854, more than a year after she died!?!  ???

Do you think it's one big cover up by their daughter who is now calling herself Mary Elizabeth Robinson?

Mary Ann Robinson, the daughter, went onto marry a William Podbury in 1861 and in the 1871 census has a son recorded as living with her called Robert George Podbury born c.1856 and I'm now wondering if he's actually the Robert George Robinson born in 1854 supposedly to William & Mary Robinson.....

I'm almost tempted to order the 1853 death cert of Mary Elizabeth Robinson just to check as the age matches but logic tells me it can't be her if she gave birth in May of 1854..... ???
