Many thanks - my wildest guesses were nowhere near!

The scarcity of entries in the GARLAND and MEAN(e) names leads me to believe that the two families were based outside St Agnes. I've trawled through the link you provided and only found one additional  instance of each name.

My eyes are on stalks. I'm reminded of the hours spent in county record offices peering into microfiche and film readers!

There is a marriage in St Agnes on 28th August 1708 between

Phillip ????? and ????? GARLAND

I can make nothing of the queried names. Can you spare the time to have a look, please?

That was certainly how I understood your post, and I apologize if my reply appeared in any way critical. I had been looking for evidence of the GARLAND name in and around St Agnes and I was grateful to receive your confirmation of the family's existence. Your input was most welcome.

Thanks both.

I have the 1742 baptism, and it's his father, who married in 1727, is the Peter I'm seeking.

I've looked for him in Devon without success.

'Richard' is very much a family name.

The 1680 marriage must be linked, but if the bride was the 'Mary' who died in 1732 she must have been in her seventies, so unlikely to have been the mother of Peter.

Trevalga is a long way from St Agnes (30+ miles) and without first names it's impossible to make a connection. At least, it's a GARLAND baptism at roughly the right time - I've had difficulty finding any instances of the name in that era.

I have to confess, I've thought that Gertrude might be 'the lady next door', but, I have to agree that it is most unlikely. Just a co-incidence?

To have an Ellen DOWNER at#21 is another co-incidence???? I wonder if she's Eleanor Mary's sister-in-law? Sister, I think, is unlikely - would you call your two daughters Eleanor and Ellen?

The document I have is a third-party's record of a question-and-answer session, the (assumed) question being "What is your name?" Answer: 'Gertrude COOK'.
The same (assumed) question to her husband eliciting the response 'Thomas COOK' even though he is actually 'Walter John Thomas COOK'.

There's a lot of 'straw clutching' going on around here at the moment.
