That's not Johanna's father. Must be a brother. That does not fit either.

Johanna/Joanna/Joannah born abt 1837. I can't find her in 1841 or 1851.

Thomas Down age 28 occ stone mason born in county
Joanna Down age 40 born in county
Elizabeth Down age 19 moths born in county

Listed below is:-

There's no Joanna with parents. So who is Susan? Is she young Joanna?.

Hi Dave,

A family tree has Johanna's father as Thomas Down born 1813 Callington died 1879 Tavistock. Mother Johanna Dunstone born about 1816 Callington died 1887 Plymouth.
Not easy to follow after 1861..

Not sure if that tree has Thomas' death right [not checked Johanna yet].. This looks like the probate for for the 1879 death, it suggests wife = Ann

Also this from Find a Grave
Birth: 1815
Death: 1879
Cornwall, England

Family links:
Spouse:
Anne Down (1815 - 1890)*
*Calculated relationship

Burial:
St Andrew Churchyard
Calstock
Cornwall Unitary Authority
Cornwall, England

May be useful to find Thomas and Joanna in 1871.

Another tree has Johanna's parents as Ajems Dunston b. 1807 and Ann b. 1811.. :rolleyes:

Geoff

EDIT: probably a misspell Ajems = James?
This would probably rule out James and Ann as parents..

Joanna Philips Dunstan
Gender: Female
Baptism Date: 11 Dec 1836
Baptism Place: St Gluvias,Cornwall,England
Father: James Dunstan
Mother: Ann

Thanks Julie.

I had come to the conclusion her father was a stone mason and that she had to be in the census under a different name - Ann or Nancy or ... but didn't think it would be Susan.


So this one is ruled out as a sibling:

County Cornwall
Place Callington
Church name The Blessed Virgin Mary
Register type
Baptism date 22 Jan 1837
Person forename Eliza
Person *** F
Father forename John
Father surname DOWN
Father occupation Mason
Mother forename Nancy

Thanks Geoff.

So John born abt 1854 is a brother. That's a lot of children.

Still some things to sort out and gaps to fill.

Births Jun Qtr 1853
DOWN John Dunstan Liskeard 5c 60
