Dunno Geoff.

Another one where there is no image for the marriage and the death certificate does not list mother's maiden name.

So, if all the trees are wrong and her mother is not Mary **** but in fact Jane then I'm lost. Age at death also is 4 years out for 1828 Crowan baptism. Death certificate says Redruth 1832.

Not close enough to a main line to be worth getting a copy of the 1847 marriage.

I feel like moving on. :biggrin:

That fits for residence and age could be read as 87 for 82.

I suspect the informant wasn't necessarily familiar with her mother's first name and assumed it was the same as hers... The birth is about 4y out, not unusual in this one :biggrin:

Since none of the children survived, it does, to some extent end there!

The reason I asked about Ballarat was Penhall/Boucher...

Age: 46
Father's Name: Mathews Benjam
Mother's Name: Jane Matthews
