I'm just thrilled to bits with what you've found. It explains why I could find nothing of Elizabeth in Cumbria then, heh!!  Would love it if somehow you could give me a copy of the marriage of Joseph and Elizabeth?  I'll have to add all these bits to my family tree tomorrow. Off to bed now but thanks a million.
Stay safe

If you PM me an e-mail, I can send the docs.

I'm in the middle of cleaning the shopping at the moment so it will be our evening!

Sorry I didn't reply to your last post.  I have sent you a PM.
By the way, once in Western Australia Elizabeth (nee Howe) had a daughter she named Mary Elizabeth in 1847. Many of our ancestors seemed to have used the name of a child who had died

Will send shortly.

So only the one son and thus no Richard. They seem to have followed a naming convention

First son - paternal  grandfather (William) - do you know from where the James Milroy names came from?
First daughter  - maternal grandmother - Mary (who died)                 ) twins
Second daughter - paternal grandmother - Janet/Jenet/Jessie/Jane )
Third daughter - mother and repeat of maternal grandmother  - Mary Elizabeth
A second son probably would have been called Richard

This looks interesting - James Milroy

1841 Barnstaple. Devon (to the  North of Great Torrington)
HO107/203/3/6/6
James Milroy, 40, Tea Dealer  b. Scotland

The rest of family were born Devon, apart from 2 other males who were servants , born Scotland.   James's wife was named  Mary Ann: not uncommon but interesting.

Very interesting.  Everyone had wondered where the Milroy came from.  My other Scottish family, even though they were scattered over Scotland, England and Australia, still managed to give their children names from people who married into the family, even whole names sometimes, not just surnames and I'm assuming that's how the Milroy got there!
Fascinating that James Milroy, tea dealer, that you found!
The names make so much sense when you outline it the way you have done.  Jenet (so pretty) just another version of Janet.
One thing that now puzzles me, do you think the parents would register William James Milroy McKnoe and sister Jessie's births in Scotland as well as in Devon? Because it seems to be what happened.

Have you got the details of the two baptisms in Scotland: date, place and names as listed?  Also, did you have Mary Ann listed  in the baptisms ?

No, sorry, can't find it now. Maybe it was just other Trees had put that info in by mistake assuming they had been born in Scotland

I've had a good look but can't find anything fro them using the widest searches.

I'll send you the Devon baptism and burial records of the three children.
