St Columb Research

Peter Martin has supplied the following link.
This leads to a PDF (The registers of the Parish of St Columb Major 1539-1780), intriguingly sourced from a copy in the University of California Library
Our copy filed under Tippett


Thanks to Christina Reynolds for this family
Susan Old, the Online Parish Clerk for St Columb Major supplied a wonderful response to a query on Colen's baptism. She mapped out  three generations back, for someone who had been a very murky figure to us.
Angela Plant's tree on Genes Reunited has supplied some stuff on this page. Ahe has the children

Research Notes

    There is an Elizabeth Coad christened in St Columb Minor in 1718, parents Walter Coad and Thomazine Manly,  who could well be John's bride.
Interesingly, Walter and Thomazine's children are called  Walter (1718), Elizabeth (1718), Robert (1723), Thomasine (1728) and Catherine (1730). All five names are in John and Elizabeth's family. Also Walter and Elizabeth were christened ion the same day
But that birth of Katherine in St Columb Minor is a bit sus. She is christened 27 May, three days after the wedding, and nine months before Ann's christening
It is all very confusing,  but the St Columb Minor Elizabeth is probably a 50% chance?

    The John Tippett born in St Columb 15 Mar 1719 could be right. If we accept him, can we find a marriage for Roger and Mary? Nothing in LDS, but FHO has Roger Tippett marrying Mary May on 23 Feb 1718/19 in Little Petherick, which is about five miles north of St Columb Major. Again not clearcut, but a 50% chance?
    Nothing in the historical records. There is a tree (AustinFamily) that gives John Tippett's parents as George Tippett (1685-1766) and Elizabeth (1695-1766), with John christened Dec 1716 in Mawgan, Pydar, Cornwall, England. This is also pretty credible as this is St Mawgan, about 2 miles from St Columb.
Has the two John Tippetts birth/christenings
Conclusion: We have two plausible sets of parents for John Tippett
