Research Notes

William Senior
LDS has two  records of  the marriage in 1770. One  gives his birth as about 1749, the other about 1745
Looking for his birth in St Agnes, we have various tries in the LDS, with parents
22 Nov 1747, Thomas Paul and Sarah Richards
26 Jul 1741, James Paul
21 Apr 1750, William and Martha Paul
           1750 looks too late, and 1741 is too early, so go with  Thomas and Sarah as our best try (6 to 4 against)
Rebecca Barkla
The only christening in LDS that fits is 8 Jun 1747 at St Agnes, Parents Sampson and Rebecca . This is again the only christening in FHO 1743-51 in Cornwall
Go with it as an 80% chance
The two above are the only ones in LDS
A visit to Ancestry in 2020 did not add to the above picture. There are multiple deaths in St Agnes for both William and Rebecca Paul but nothing clear
