I am busy working on a family that lived in St Hilary in the 1850's. I have a record of a Mary Jane ROWE who married Richard Carbines OATS in Mar 1880.
Mary Jane ROWE was the daughter of Richard and Mary born Dec 1859. There are a number of children born and christened during the period 1850 - 59 in St Hilary to Richard and Mary (Alexander 1853, Richard 1855, William James 1856,John 1857,). I cannot find a marriage in St Hilary to match but I have a record of Richard ROWE marrying Mary OATS in St Just in Penwith in 1839. An IGI search indicates christenings in the Paul, Madron and St Levan areas. There is one for John Oats ROWE in St Just and John ROWE in St Levan for the same year (1845) which may indicate a home and away christening.
If anyone has researched the ROWE families in this area and can shed any light on this I would be grateful. Just curious but if they link back to Mary OATS I would like to allocate correctly.
Many thanks for any help - Rob

Have found some information from Census records. The Cornwall Census on-line project records 1861 for St Hilary seem incomplete. The 1851 Census reveals the OATS family living 2 doors down from the ROWE family in Relubbus lane. The 1871 Census records indicate that Richard and Mary married about 1853 and the children mentioned above are theirs. Again Mary (wife of Richard ROWE) would appear to be Mary SEARLE born 1820.

"A name perpetual, and a fame permanent and immortal"
Thanks CT. Yup Richard s/o of Alexander is confirmed by the 1851 Census. Also agree on Mary SEARLE. In the 1871 Census it records Mary SEARLE (snr) living with Richard as his m-in-law which is what put me on to the SEARLE name.
I hope I am not too late to post for this thread but I also have the surname Rowe in my family tree so perhaps they are related somehow? My Gt Gt GRandfather was William Prisk and he married Elizabeth Rowe..Here is the marriage information..
