Hello,

Charles DEVONSHIRE b. 1807 Cornwall ?
Elizabeth RASHLEIGH b. 1815 Suffolk ?

I would say the birth years were calculated from age at death.

Emigrated to South Australia:

DEVONSHIRE Charles, Elizabeth RASHLEIGH, John Chas, Joanna arrived 1839-03-22 on 'D'Auvergne' from London 1838-11-13 [Source:1,2,4,7,21,23(4)]

gender: Male
baptism/christening date: 02 Sep 1838

I notice RASHLEIGH is quite a common name in Cornwall but I can't find the marriage.
