Research Notes

LDS has full names of parents for Richard (b 1740) , and hence to their marriage in Kenwyn
LDS - John Matthews christening record only has the father
Most likely marriage for John Matthews is 03 Aug 1706 in  Kenwyn, Cornwall to Love Trejan, though there are lots of other candidates - make it 50% and call a halt. LDS has no children
