John Cornelius, Married 1733, St Lawrence, Kent
« on: Friday 22 March 19 18:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

Newbie here and enjoying the detective work.

Trying to trace the origins and death of John Cornelius who married Mary Constable on 5/4/1733 in St Lawrence, Ramsgate, Kent.

Can't find where he was born or who to. Or where he died. Possibly born in Salehurst, Sussex in 1711 to John and Elizabeth but not sure. Also may have died in Westwell, Kent in 1760 but also not sure.

Many thanks for any help!

Mark

There is this baptism, but it's only a possibility:

Name    John Cornelias
Residence Place    Canterbury, Kent, England
Gender    Male
Christening Date    14 Oct 1705
Christening Place    St. George, Canterbury, Kent, England
Father's Name    Thomas Cornelias

Given the place of the marriage, would this not be a possible burial?

Name    John Cornlius
Event Type    Burial
Event Date    24 Nov 1789
Event Place    St Laurence in Thanet, Kent, England, United Kingdom
Event Place    St Lawrence in Thanet, St Lawrence, Kent
Age    85

Thanks Bev. Where did you find these two records? Can you please send me links?

I'm on findmypast if that helps.

Do you think it would be feasible that John would have married at 18?

If he married in 1733, he would have been 27/28, not 18.   :)
I found these records on good old FamilySearch.
