Emmanuel Riggs and Ann......

Their children were baptized St. Ives Cornwall the first one being Emmanuel in 1836.

I've looked on the usual sites. It maybe that they didn't come from Cornwall?

Thanks :)

Hello Julie,

The name Emmanuel Riggs seems to be common in Dorset but I can't see a marriage to an Ann/Hannah/Nanny/Nancy...
