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

Research Notes

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 information
      I have checked the Tintagel records I have on Medling; and found the following entries:
Medlinge, Richard, Chr.15 June 1714: son of John Medlinge and Mary
Medling, John, Chr. 22 Oct 1721; son of John Medling and Mary
Medling, John, Chr. 28 Sep 1746; son of Richard and Ann Medling
Medling, Elizabeth, Chr.14 May 1749; dau. of Richard and Ann Medling
Medling, Fanny, 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 Rowley)
