Needing information on Grace Hannah POLLARD. Born 5 Oct 1806 in Gwinear, Maker, married William Hall CREBER 28 Aug 1820 Maker. died about March 1868. Wanting info regarding the area during those years as pertains to this couple. They apparently moved to Kent around 1830, but had spent 1828-1833 (aprox)in Pembrookshire, Wales. I have 11 children born to this couple including my G Grandmother Ann Quinn CREBER (1838-1905) William was a shipwright - was this the reason they moved to the London area?

red mail John JOHNS
Searching for my Great Great Grandfather John JOHNS. He was born 7 Aug 1836 in Cornwall and died 24 Jan 1916 in South Australia, Australia. His wife (cannot verify they married) was Hannah Maria McMAHON born c.1838 in County Wicklow Ireland, she died 21 Aug 1930 in Broken Hill, NSW, Australia. They lived in Moonta, South Australia and Broken Hill, NSW, Australia - I believe her father was William McMAHON although her surname on birth certificates varied. My Great Grandmother Ellen JOHNS was on of their children. I cannot find anything about John JOHNS and would appreciate any information and also anything on Hannah Maria. Thanking you in advance, Sharon.

red mail Richard Parsons, Tremaine,
I'm hoping for some info about my Gtx4 Grandfather, Richard Parsons. He was a farmer in Tremaine in 1841 and possibly before that. I believe he married Elizabeth ?Bray, possibly in North Petherwin. Richard had a son, also Richard who was born c1806 and died at Fuges, Week St Mary on 15/11/1882 (poss 15/9/1882). The son Richard married Jane Trease at Egloskerry church on 26/4/1832. They had eleven children including Jane Trease Parsons (1834-1872), who eventually married John Gilbert on 9/11/1858 at Whitstone. Their daughter Hannah was my great-grandmother. I have come to a halt with Richard Parsons (father of Richard born c1806) and would love to hear any info anyone may have. Thank you, Sue

I am looking for inf about Hannah GARRETT, who married Thomas BASSETT, an engineer, probably about 1819 or 1820. They had five sons who were all born in the Midlands, but I think they may have moved up there from Cornwall.
