This couple's names have had various spellings  eg Colan Colen Mariana Marinea Tippitt Teppit. Also Marina's age seems varible. But all the census records below seem to be definitely them

1841 census

St Columb Major, Green Lane, all born in county, all in the one dwelling (age, occupation)
William Tippett      55,,Ag Lab
Nancy Tippett       50
Colon Tippett        30,,Woolcomber
Ann Tippett           25
Peggy Tippett        20
Richard Tippett     15,,Ag Lab

Sarah Tippett          8
William Tippett        5
Anney Tippett,        1
Marinea Tippett     30
Lewisa Tippett           10m
Comment: The 10 month old is Louisa! It is reasonable to assume we have Colon's parents here. Also to assume Anney is Marina's child, given the presence on an earlier Ann.
This is confirmed by the 1851 census, From that we can add Joseph and Mary as reasonable other children.

Susan Old, the Online Parish Clerk for St Columb Major supplied a wonderful response to a query on Colen's baptism. She added three generations back, for someone who had been a very murky figure to us.

Research Notes

Genes Reunited checked for Colon and Marina

LDSand FHO no joy looking for Colon's birth, or Colon or Marina's deaths
LDS has Colon and Marina's marriage in the IGI, and Marina's birth with parents, though no maiden name for Honora. FHO enrty is the same.
Mylor and Flushing are half a mile apart, near Falmouth, so the 1881 Census and IGI fit nicely
OPC Mylor parish is vacant
OPC St Columb - database search 1807-21  using  " %ol"  " %ip"    did not yeild anything on Colon Tippet
Unable to find Colon and Marina  in 1861 or 1871 Census
Checked the 1851 family in LDS, but could not find anyone
Genes Reunited Nothing on Marina or Honora  Bath. One try James
