Researchers on the Cubits and Chilcotts have shared their work
generously, and I have not been good at noting sources. However,
much is owed to Val Trickett, Sue Royce, Jenny Mitchell and Fred
Mitchell. Another source was Beris Wilkinson.
Karen Paul's tree on Genes Reunited also filled in some gaps
Thanks to Doris Parsons Miller, OPC for Tintagel
There is an Ann Chilcott in the 1841 census in Tintagel in 1841 (age
not given, head of household, Charwoman - other residents in
households seem to have beeb omitted).
She is not in the 1851 census - more likely to be Langford the son's
wife (Nee Bray)?
Doris Parsons Miller, OPC for Tintagel supplied the following
I have checked the Tintagel records I have on
Medling; and found the following entries:
Richard, Chr.15 June 1714: son of John Medlinge and Mary
Chr. 22 Oct 1721; son of John Medling and Mary
Chr. 28 Sep 1746; son of Richard and Ann Medling
Elizabeth, Chr.14 May 1749; dau. of Richard and Ann Medling
Chr. 1 Jul 1753; dau of Richard and Ann Medling
I found no other christenings named Medling. It is very likely
that your Ann was a member of this family. The repetition of
names was very common at this time and we find an Ann Medling
who is possibly the mother or grandmother you are looking for.
The timing seems to favour grandparents? (Les
