Most of our family are miners by trade. John Reynolds of Cornwall born 1820 marries Elizabeth Mitchell in 1843 and they have a daughter born in 1844 Elizabeth Jane Reynolds who in 1868 marries THOMAS HENRY CHIVELL in MEXICO when THOMAS and her father are mining silver 50 miles north of Mexico city. In 1870 Elizabeth Reynolds 47 lives in Grass Valley, Ca. with daughters Maria 13, Cathrine 6, and Annie 4. Later in 1880 John Reynolds lives as a widow in Butte Co. near Nelson Ca. with two of his daughters living with him...Annie and Kate. Next farm over his son-in law THOMAS HENRY CHIVELL born 1844 in St. Day or St. Agnes is the son of William and Mary Snell. Living with Thomas is his wife Elizabeth Reynolds Chivell born 1844 and her sister Minnie Reynolds. Their children Jane 12, Elizabeth 8, Johnny 5, Margaret 2,not all the children were born to the Chivell's in 1880, three more were born before March of 1892. In 1892 five of the 7 children die of diphtheria in March of that year. Two daughters survive and one Lydia married Alonzo H. Reager in July of 1899 in Nelson. Kate Reynolds marries Neil McKillop in 1886 in Nelson. In 1896 John Reynolds dies in Butte at 76. after the death of the 5 children and marriage of daughter Lydia, Thomas H. goes to Australia to regain his wealth. Elizabeth Jane Chivell takes her other remaining daughter Margaret back to England and in 1901 is living with her mother-in law Mary Snell. Living in the same household is a school master Hugh Jory who later marries Margaret Chivell. In 1904 Thomas is back from Australia and returns TO CA. for a visit with Elizabeth and in 1908 she returns again alone and Thomas is dead in 1911, he is buried in the family plot at the OLD church with no roof in St. Day. Does any of this connect to your family?
red mail Key Family - Gwennap/St Day
I am descended from Nicholas Key who married Eleanor Michell in Gwennap 25/06/1794. Eleanor was said to be from Redruth and Nicholas was recorded as a 'sojournor' (I think he may have been a blacksmith). However, there is a record of an Eleanor Michell being baptised in Gwennap on 13/06/1774. Nicholas and Eleanor had 3 children: Eleanor, Joseph and John born in Gwennap between 1795 and 1798. I am descended from Joseph who married Sally Brokenshire in St Wenn 22/10/1821. The family later moved to St Just in Penwith in the 1830s where they stayed until the 1880's when my part of the family moved to Brotton, Yorks. I am happy to share more information with anyone who is interested.
