William Thomas Clymo Brown 1861, married Elizabeth Turner of Lancashire at Wigan in 1894
Hmmm - this is either a second marriage or there is another William Thomas Clyma Brown that I haven't yet come across. The information I found yesterday ws that William Thomas Clyma Brown married Sophia Jane Northey (nee Williams) at Truro St John 24th January 1884.
Yes, after checking the 1891 Census I see that William Brown, now a widower, was at Wigan with his brother-in-law Isaiah Ashton and family. Also with William was his step-daughter Clara Northey so it is then a case of a second marriage. Isaiah Ashton's wife was the sister of Sophia Jane Williams who had first married William Northey in 1868 and then William Thomas Clyma Brown in 1884.
Not an easy family to piece together with Elizabeth Ann Williams, I now know, having married thrice - 1. John Collick in 1865 (Helston R.D.) 2. Richard George in 1868 (Truro R.D.) and then 3. Isaiah Ashton in 1888 (Wigan R.D.). As the first two marriages were shortlived and all events took place between Census years it took some doing to piece it all together but I think I now have most of the basic information. Unfortunately many of the events also did not take place in the Established Church!
Re Emma Jane Williams (wife of Thomas Clymo Brown) - she was baptized Camelford Wesleyan Circuit 13th June 1842 daughter of Thomas and Jane Williams. The parents were Thomas Charles Williams and Jane Richards who married at Lanteglos by Camelford 28th September 1841.
I cannot find Thomas and Jane as yet in the 1851 Census but Emma Jane was with her grandparents William and Elizabeth Richards at Lanteglos by Camelford at that time with both grandparents having been born at Camelford.
That now seems to suggest that your Bennetts link might be more likely. Problem is that I can find no way at the moment to prove whether Sarah Bennetts was the daughter of Johnson (bp. 1749 Camborne) or Arthur (bp. 1751 Camborne). I cannot find a burial that might match either of these girls and at Camborne I can find only the marriage to Edward Quintrall which means one of the Sarah Bennetts is still 'floating loose' somewhere.
I have searched the CRO Catalogue and can find no Will for Johnson Bennetts or for Edward Quintrall and also none for Arthur Bennetts. Also Sarah Quintrall,widow, was buried in 1812 ..... the year before they began recording ages at Camborne!!
Doesn't help with Grace Trewhela at the moment but hope is not lost!
