Research Notes

LDS Family search gives a sister for Marina  (=:Louisa)
    disconcerting is a Silas Bath christened in Madron, parents James and Honora. This seems to be another James and Honora.. We also found this other couple in the census.
LDS birth of James. Lots of possible christening
(1) Probus 1772, parents James and Elizabeth.  Probus  is about ten miles  from  Mylor, but the other side of Truro
(2) Budock 1772, parents James and Elizabeth.. Budock is about two miles from Mylor
(3) There are 5 James Bath's Christened at Stithians in the period 1756-1772. Stithians is only seven miles NW of Mylor

James and Honora/Honour's marriage is not in the LDS, but is in FHO  Saint Just In Roseland is about a mile across the Estuary from Mylor as the seagull flies

Tried to find Birth of James we have in the Census above, but no joy?


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