:)Dear All, I recently found Richard Banfields probate: Richard Banfield Probate Date: 15 Sep 1862 Death Date: 14 Aug 1862 Death Place: Cornwall, England Registry: Bodmin "Personal Estate and effects of Richard Banfield late of Redruth in the County of Cornwall Miner deceased who died 14 Aug 1862 Redruth aforesaid were granted at Bodmin to Elizabeth Banfield of Redruth aforesaid widow Effects under 20 pounds" So it looks like Elizabeth was still alive 1862 Cheers Sandy
I am wondering if there is some confusion re Richard & Elizabeth Banfields here....
Given Richard Banfield of Lelant + wife Elizabeth Bonnamy of Devon were born in the 1870s and were in their 70s in the 1851 census, they would have been doing well to both be alive in the 1861 census, both in their 80s, for there then to be a death of Richard in 1862 and a will naming his wife Elizabeth.
This 80+ year old pair are not apparent in the 1861 census as CT has already said.
But they had had a son Richard in 1813, who also married an Elizabeth from Devon.....
In 1851 this younger Richard & Elizabeth Bamfield pair are 37 & 30 @ Cross Street Redruth with 4 children, as mentioned previously in this thread.
In 1861 this younger Richard & Elizabeth Bamfield pair are 44(!) & 40 @ Treskerby Gwennap with 5 of their children.
I'd be a-thinking that the will you've found of 1862 might be for Richard Bamfield this latter pair, he baptized Lelant 1813...?
Which would leave the previously mentioned 1860 & 1853 deaths as probables for Richard Banfield b1775 & wife Elizabeth Bonnamy.

Thanks Sue - that looks a much more likely scenario.
But we really need some burial information to be certain and unfortunately neither Gwennap nor Redruth is currently covered with available information.
I had considered the son also but I do not have his marriage recorded in my database and was too tired at the time to try and pursue it. Guess I will have to rectify that little anomaly and get the information updated!

The younger Richard Bamfield with his wife Elizabeth and daughter Elizabeth can be found at Redruth in 1841 but transcribed as BARNFIELD.
I have submitted a correction to this and it should soon be found as BAMFIELD.
Daughter Elizabeth was age 1 so we are certainly looking at the 1839 marriage I alluded to in an earlier post on this subject.
The name of his wife is Elizabeth Goldsworht OR possibly Elizabeth Martin.
And it would appear that the latter must be the favourite. According to the 1851 Census Elizabeth was born at Ashburton, Devon around 1820 or 1821 and although Devon does not have the same coverage as Cornwall when it comes to Parish Register transcriptions or other availability it does seem that we might be in luck.
I can find no suitable Elizabeth Goldsworthy but I could find the following in FamilySearch:-
Elizabeth daughter of Anthony and Joanna MARTIN baptised 14th March 1821 Ashburton, Devon, England

A note of CAUTION for those using FamilySearch - do NOT neglect IGI!!
I could not find a marriage for Anthony Martin in FamilySearch which I thought was maybe a little strange given all three children that I have found were baptised at Ashburton and the eldest was baptised in 1810.
I have now looked at the old IGI and:-
Anthony Martin married Joanna Livermore 12th May 1799 at Ashburton, Devon
From the information I have gathered so far from the Census and other records this must be Anthony:-
Anthony son of Anthony and Mary Martin bp. 3rd February 1777 Redruth, Cornwall
The 1841 Census indicated that Joanna was age 55 and so born sometime between 1781 and 1786. The only possible baptism I can find is this one:-
Johanna daughter of Nathaniel and Susanna Livermore bp. 28th January 1781 Ashburton, Devon
