red mail BASSETT family between 1820 to 1851
John Bassett and Martha Carbis, married in the Paul parish in 1812, and lived in St Hilary from 1815 to 1820. The couple moved from St Hillary and then lived in various places in Breage between 1820 and 1851 before leaving the area. Evidence of where they were lived in Breage can be found in two of the local parish churches and also in the 1841 and 1851 census records Parish Church Records - John & Martha’s children who were christened in Breage are found in the following parish churches are as follows:- the Germoe church:- • John 1820 (IGI) • Francis 1823 (Transcribed from the Parish Records by the On line Parish Clerk) • Anne 1826 (IGI) • Martha 1828 (IGI) • Samuel 1838 (Transcribed from the Parish Records by the On line Parish Clerk) the St Breaca church:- • James 1833 who was also burried in this church in 1833 (Transcribed Parish Records by a fellow researcher) • James 1834 (Transcribed from the Parish Records by a fellow researcher) (It appears as though these churches were quite close together, according to the Parish Locator program about 2 miles apart, why the family had various children christened in two different churches is unknown. According to Genuki “Germoe has been considered as a separate parish for many years, but the Church has been subordinate to that of Breage. It is located in the far south-west of Cornwall, sandwiched between the parishes of Godolphin and Breage. This was eminently a mining parish, but it also had some good farms. Originally, the houses and shops were built to satisfy the needs of miners digging for tin and china clay”) In the Census records the family can be found residing in the following places 1841 Blowing House Stamps, Breage (HO107/136/3, Folio:64, Page:19) 1.

Date Family
I am researching my family line on my father's side. When I originally posted my details on the site some months ago, I believed that I decended from the Date family who were based in Somerset. Through research, I now know that this is incorrect as my decendants were from Cornwall, namely from Constantine, Breage and Sithney. Through the willingness of others to share information, I have amassed a great deal which I am slowly putting onto a family tree. However, I would be delighted to hear from anyone who may be a DATE or have a DATE connection in their family trees to discuss any links that there may be.
