Robert FUZZARD and Bathsheba MARTIN
« on: Thursday 05 October 17 19:12 BST (UK) »
My great great grand father Robert Fuzzard Married Bathsheba Martin on the 13th May 1814 at Town Church in St Peters Port Guernsey ,which I found recorded in the Town Church marriages 1794-1835 located in the Prilaux library when I visited Guernsey a number of years ago. Robert was the son of Robert Fuzzard of Weymouth. Robert who married Bathsheba was born in Portland Dorset in 1793 and Bathsheba was from Mevagissy in Cornwall and they had a son James Benjamin born 12th April 1817, and I have traced all of those descendents. However whilst continuing my research I have come across in the British coastguard records 1841-1901 a Robert Fuzzard and Bathsheba Martinliving in Forrabury, Cornwall where Robert is a coastguard and they have twins Jane and Robert born 1826 in Guernsey and now aged 15. I am seeking help in looking for the birth of the twins in Guernsey as there is no mention of James so did they loose contact with their brother James. I am sure they must be one and the same family because of the unusual surnames. I know Jane did return to live in Guernsey but she was a widow by this time. I will have to find her married name and post at a later dat. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Maria is James' second wife I believe. He appears to have 3 children in Guernsey with a Sarah Mercer between 1843 and 1850.  In 1851 the two eldest (girls) are with an uncle and aunt along with some of the Carroll children from 1841 (also nephews and nieces). The youngest Robert is adopted by a Shaw family (and there is a Shaw in the 1841 household). In 1861 one of the girls is in East Stonehouse, near James and Maria
