     Langford Chilcott (b 1741 Tintagel, d 1758)

    Christopher's son William stayed on in the parish as a gentleman farmer and acquired lands also in Poundstock and St Gennys through his second marriage with the widow Rebecca Williams of Poundstock.  The children and grandchildren of his first marriage (to Hannah Henwood) moved to St Minver and were dispersed through marriage.


    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 Wilkinsont. Karen Paul's tree on Genes Reunited also filled in some gaps

Research Notes

LDS checked for Rebecca. Most plausible Christening is a Receccah 09 Jul 1712   Duloe, Cornwall, Parents John and Sarah. Duloe is about twelve miles south of North Hill
FHO has Rebekah christened St Breok 11 Dec 1711, Father John, but this is further afield
