red mail Language Professors Missing Family
We are researching the family of Hilarius Freund, a Swiss National, who married an Elizabeth or Lizzie Williams in 1881 in Kenwyn. Elizabeth and her mother, Catherine, owned and ran a lodging house in St Dominic's Street. All 3 of these people appear on the 1881 census, and also on the 1891 census together with Elizabeth and Hilarius' then children. Unfortunately by 1901 they appear to have moved! There is no trace of Hilarius and his family on the 1901 census! By 1901 there were 7 children - at least 2 not living at home. The youngest of the children were born in 1897 and 1898 so they must be at home. Can anyone help. We will happily swap information with anyone else researching this family.
John GUNN & Kezia HICKS
John GUNN born c1787, probably of Kenwyn or Kea, but possibly of Gwennap married / lived with Kezia HICKS of Kenwyn (chr 1796) in Topsham, Devon.

Children were John, Kezia 1, Kezia 2, Richard Hicks, Susannah, Mary Ann, Elizabeth Grace and Sarah Jane. They showed distinct non-conformist tendencies in Topsham. The 1841 Churchwardens Census of Topsham shows their parish of settlement to be Gwennap.
