The census records give us the Penny family. None of the children appear to be in the LDS, which in a sense tallies with the fact that we cannot find Eliza either. The marriage is not there either, but there is a birth for James in St Cleer in St Cleer 1787, parents Edward and Jane Penny

Ancestry has a Tree for this family ("Trevena Family Tree"), with some additions and differences to the census family, though they are obviously the same family. Differences in red

James Penny (b 1787 St Cleer, m Jenny Godfrey 28 Apr 1812 St Cleer, 1870 Liskeard Cornwall)   
Jenny Godfrey (b  Liskeard)

    Jane Penny (b 1826 Liskeard)
    Elizabeth Penny (b 1818 Liskeard)
    Ann Penny (b 1821 Liskeard)
    James Penny (b 1824 Liskeard)
    Mary Penny (b 1826 Liskeard, m James Blight 1851 Liskeard)
    missing is Maria Penny (b 1831 Liskeard)
