Research Notes

Cannot find a marriage in Ladock
Best try is perhaps a marriage to Grace Glanville in Truro 23 Jun 1737 , but it is a bit late (Honour was born in December). Truro is about six miles SW of Ladock
There is another possible marriage in Gulval in 1733, to Grace Rodder, but that is twenty five miles to the West
There is an OPC site for Ladock (Kay Woodhouse), with an online database to check, but there is no marriage there (May 2007) in the period of interest . She indicates she is transcribing more data.
She has email contact, but have not tried in view of the online DB
LDS has a possible christening for John 07 Aug 1716 , (Parents John and Elizabeth), which is a bit late, he would be 21 when Honour was born
OPC site has a couple of other children of theirs, but no John
So declare us stymied for the moment
