Hi Marion,

A Big Welcome to RootsChat and the Cornwall Board  :D

I have been having a good scout about and I see this couple had children from about 1753 in Wendron

No marriage listed in Wendron or Helston. On looking further afield I did find an entry for Mylor listed in the Bishops Transcripts

George HARRIS = Margaret TRESEDER 1 Jan 1749 Mylor

There do appear to be other marriages of persons with Treseder type names around the area. IGI has a few marriages listing the wife as of Mylor. There are a few baptisms listed but not Margaret and I can not see any alternate listings for online records for this parish. There are quite a few Tresidder marriages and baptisms in Wendron, but again no luck with Margaret.

How sure are you of George's year of birth? Seems there are a few about but I am not spotting any in the known area..............Cheers Kris  :D

Hi Kris, 

Thank you for the welcome.  ;)

The only information that I have is what was gleaned from IGI. Born abt 1727 for George and Margaret born abt 1731.  Yes there were children George 1753 Margaret 1755 John 1757 James 1759 James 1766 (this is my ancestor) Thomas 1769 Martha 1771.   James 1766 married a Elizabeth Tresidder.

Regards Marion ;)
