Nicholas Assheton
Can any kind person tell me about the family of Nicholas Assheton who is said to have rebuilt St Mary's church in Callington in 1428? The information I have found so far is full of anachronisms and errors and thus not credible: Nicholas is said to have been the son of Thomas Assheton who wasn't born until 1403; he is said to have been a judge of the court of common pleas, but is not in Foss's Judges of England; and he is said to have married a daughter of Lord Willoughby de Broke, who was not so ennobled until 1491.
red mail Sutton and Lucas info
I am looking for any information on my great, great grandparents, William Henry Lucas and Mary Jane Sutton. Her bible shows Mary Jane's parents to be John and Rebecca Sutton with no dates of birth, but born in Callington, Cornwall., England. Her grandmother's name was Elizabeth or Betsy Sutton. I know nothing of William Henry Lucas except that he was born June 7, 1839 in Cornwall and died at the age of 43 of the Black Plague and left his wife Mary Jane with 8 children. He may have been connected with the tin mines. Daughter Myra Elizabeth Sutton Lucas came to American to marry John Larcombe.

My own branch of the BODY Family originates in nearby QUETHIOCK. My Gx5 Grandfather, John BODY, married Thomasine TOLL at St. Hughs Parish Church, QUETHIOCK, in July 1731. In the Course of my research, I have traced several other Branches of the BODYFamily, in EASTERN CORNWALL and WESTERN DEVON. Among these are the BODY Family in CALLINGTON. I have traced them back to William BODY and Elizabeth CONDY, who married, about 1827, at STOKE CLIMSLAND, CORNWALL. Most of their Children were born in Callington. William BODY was born, on 25 November 1798, probably in SOUTHILL, CORNWALL. I have traced the Ancestors of William BODY back to his GX2 Grandparents, Stephen BODY and Phillipa CRAGOE, who married, on 6 April 1702, at St. Cuby Parish Church,DULOE, CORNWALL. I have details of MANY OTHER BODY DESCENDANTS OF THIS COUPLE, IN CORNWALL, OTHER COUNTIES IN ENGLAND AND OVERSEAS. I would like to exchange information with other Researchers.
