Parents     Philip and Florence Harris           Elizabeth's parents possibly John and Grace Wakeford (50%)

Samuel Harris (b 1685 St Columb Major, m Elizabeth Wakeford 1709 Mawgan In Pyder, St Columb Major)  
    Walter Harris (b 1711 St Columb Major)
    Florence Harris (b 1713 St Columb Major, d 1731)
    John Harris (b 1714 St Columb Major, d 1749)
    Samuel Harris (b 1716 St Columb Major)
    Grace Harris (b 1718 St Columb Major)
    Phillip Harris (b 1721 St Columb Major, m Margaret Teddam 1753  St Columb Major)
        Margaret Harris (b 1759 St Columb Major, m  Colan Bettison 1785 St Enoder)
            Ann (Nancy) Bettinson (b 1788 St Columb Major, m  William  Tippett 1710 St Columb Major, d aft 1840 bef 1851 census)
                Colon Tippett (b 1810 St Columb Major(Colen), m Marina Bath 1836 Madron Cornwall, d 1888)     
                      William Henry Tippet (b 1843 St Columb, m Eliza Julian 1865 Cornwall, d 1927 Brunswick Vic)
                        Annie Tippett (b 1879 Fraddon, St Enoder Cornwall, m Herbert Oscar Smalley 1908 North Fitzroy, d 1955 Kew Vic)
    Samuel Harris (b 1723 St Columb Major)
    James Harris (b 1726 St Columb Major, d 1727)
    Jane Harris (b 1728 St Columb Major)


Susan Old, the Online Parish Clerk for St Columb Major supplied a wonderful response to a query on Colen Tippet's baptism. She found us Ann Bettison
Her response to a later query whether she had anything on Elizabeth's parents was as follows:
I think they were John Wakeford and Grace but I have no proof as yet.  They were producing in St Mawgan at that time but I have not got that far back in the register yet.
The LDS has the following children christened in St Mawgan for the couple Susan suggests
Breget      01 Nov 1686
Jane         07 Jul 1689
William     20 Dec 1673
       so rate John and Grace a 50% chance
An email from Hilary Picton supplies another child to this marriage, Grace baptised 9 April 1693. Just looking at the dates, John and Grace could easily be grandparents 

Research Notes

An email from Cathy Rhodes has Samuel Harris marrying Elizabeth Pomery about 1710 with a similar list of children to the ones above
However all I can find in the LDS or OPC databases is the Mawgan in Pyder marriage to Elizabeth Wakeford. Mawgan in Pyder is 3 miles WNW of St Columb
The children's baptisms do not give Elizabeth's maiden name
