Back

I must admit that in all of the info I have received/gathered there are not many births or baptisms that we can tie down....

Thomas and Sophia children:
Defiance b c 1872...there is a death in Penzance in 1873 ... It is not her as she is 19 on the 1891 census

The only real baptism I have is for the youngest child ..Selina ...22 feb 1891
All the other DOB and POb are just estimates from the censuses we do have .

I am not sure if the Penfolds or Orchards did this ...but there are many Gypsy families who would change their surnames for'privacy' , some men even took on their wife's maiden names ...it just makes it even more difficult to find them.

As I said, I am missing Thomas and Sophia et al in 1871 and 1881 ....they seemed to be living in the Devonshire and Cornish areas at that time.

Christona/Christiana  b 1875 married  william Orchard in St austell Cornwall in 1898 ...
Nelson was  was born in Helston 13 May 1883 ,Helston, Cornwall

It seems like they were around that area  from their marriage in 1866 Devon ...and kids born in the St Autell, Truro area Cornwall thereafter ....

I hope this makes sense
