I too have Garthuried Ferres of St.Allen, cornwall - she married my gggreatgrandfather - been trying to find out more about her but have hit a brick wall - many times - then came across your post

Greetings, cousin, and a warm welcome to Rootschat.

I have sent a personal message with all I know about Garthuried/Gartred/Gertrude.

All the best
Philip

The christian name Banfree, on a census transcription!  I recall thinking "What???  When I eventually found the original, her name was actually Winifred!

I found a child named “tweezer” on Ancestry in the 1851 census - except she wasn’t called that, it was a transcribing error. Any guesses (without looking!)?

I've just discovered a 3rd cousin once removed called Ivo (on his birth and marriage record)  I thought it was a mistake and it was really Ivor/Ifor as he was Welsh. However, I now find out that it is a real name

Have other heard of this ?

Mainly for Vikings!  Ivo does appear now and then in Scandinavian countries, but the only other Ivo I have heard of is a comedian called Ivo Graham.
