Research Notes

LDS have our Greets in the right place and noone else. We can mine LDS right back to John Greet born  about 1570 in Saint J on R.

Rebecca Rowter is unclear. There are two christenings at St Gerrans, one mile or so east of Saint Just In Roseland (FHO has nothing extra)
    (1) 1734, no parents
    (2) 1743, father Robert Rowter, no mother specified
Searching on Robert Rowter yeilds a probable brother christened 1729 St Gerrans. But also two other Roberts
    (1) christened 1722 St Ewe
    (1) christened 1745 St Ewe
St Ewe is about 12 miles NE of Saint Just In Roseland. We seem to have two familes here. LDS seems to have two streams going back, one in each location
So we will give her a father and brother.
Robert born 1699 has a father Geoge, but no further information in LDS or FHO. No mothers on any of the christenings going back, but is that Thomas second name for Mary a pointer to anything? Probably not. John Greet had an elder sister Thomasin.


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.
