The John Nankivill Osburn (son's birth certificate spelling) I mentioned (my great great grandfather) was born in approx 1807 (he was 44 in the 1851 census). 

As the posting by jwood said that he was the illegitimate son of John Nankivell, it is possible that the William Nankivell, born in 1803, mentioned in barryd's posting, was also the son of John Nankivell or at least closely related.

I need to do some more digging!

Hi haylingozzy,
I am descended though Mary Osborne, John Nankivell Osborne's (JNO) sister I believe. In the IGI (her christening) her mother is Peggy Osbourn, rather than Margaret, and has no father listed. JNO is a witness at her wedding in 1837 where her father is given as John Nankivell. I believe that JNO married Jane Drabe in 1829 and I think she is found widowed in Calstock in 1861 with children Betsey, James, Henery and Mary. This is the same town that his sister Mary moved to. Am I on the right track?

Normally Peggy and Margaret are the same person.

Hi all

I am looking for the parents of Nancy Nankivel born 16 April 1826 as far as I am aware her parents were John Nankivel and Mary but have no further information on them. Nancy went on to marry James Tredinick Gerry in 1846 in Tavistock.

Its possible that Nancy has a brother called Thomas born 27/2/1832 and a sister called Grace born 26/5/1829.

Any help gratefully received

Hi treemad, I am related through Jonathan mentioned in jwood's post. Jonathan moved to New Zealand where I am from.



I can find no Bartles that moved to NZ, I know he was the s/o Walter and Mary Osborne, and g/son of John Nankivell, but there is no mention of Jonathon in the NZ registers. Any more information?
Cheers
Dianne
