Decided to recheck the 1841 Census to see if I may have missed anything.
Bridget QUICK was living at Halsetown in 1841 and the only other member of the householdwas William HARRY, age 8.
I have the sneaking suspicion that Bridget and William Harry were actually at the house of the Penberthy family in the 1841 census, parents Richard and Ann, and I also think that Ann was a Moorshead. I am sure that the marriage of Ann and Richard Penberthy is in a thread started by Zenobia some time ago.
I believe that Bridget died in 1849. The family is from Lelant and Ann Penberthy appears in the 1851 census with some of her younger children confirming that.
I noted that in one of the Uren wills on Kathie's website (details at home : Bridget and her daughter Catherine were mentioned, Bridget being his housekeeper. One of the witnesses to the will was Israel Quick.
While you are looking at the Wills on the Family Search site you might be interested to look at the Will of Charles UREN AP/U/188 from the year 1816 at St Ives. Very interesting with respect to this thread.

Yes, I now have a copy of that Will. A little difficult to read because of image quality but I do see that Bridget married Israel Quick just over two months after this Will was written. Signiatures confirm that this is the same Israel Quick who signed the Will as a witness.

You could …………. but I wouldn't want to assign any sort of reliability to the guess! Israel was married at the time and had chilren before and after 1799 when Catherine Moorshead was born.
It should also be noted that Bridget also had an illegitimate son (John Moorshead) at Lelant back in 1791. Maxwell Adams transcribed the entry for the OPC records but it does not appear in the Lelant Parish Register. However, I have just found it recorded in the Exeter BTs for Lelant dated 23rd October 1791.
I am not into making guesses and have no intention of assigning a father to Catherine, but I find it intriguing that Charles Uren would leave so much to Catherine... even with his brother William still alive.. so I was not suggesting Israel as the potential father, rather Charles Uren.
