Edward son of Edward Try and Jane James bapt 16 Jun 1788 married a Sarah somewhere, some-when? (Children born Portland)
In 1841 the family are in Suffolk - Edward is a Coast Guard. In 1851 and 61 he is back in St Ives. His daughter Sarah married Henry Farman in Suffolk, His daughter Elizabeth Wallis Try married William Cothey in St Ives. AND one of Sarah's children had Wallis as a middle name which leads me to think that Edward's wife might well have been Sarah, daughter of James Wallis and Margaret Harry.
Can anyone find the marriage of Edward & Sarah?
BTW I was sure I had posted this yesterday but must have hit the wrong button - apologies if it appears twice.

How come when I ask a question I find the answer before anyone sees it! Sarah Wallis m Edward Fry 19 Feb 1818 at Portland Dorset (IGI) it didn't come up when I searched for Edward but I just tried for Sarah and there it was!
And there are a couple of possible baptisms at Portland so I shall have to cancel the idea of her parents being James & Margaret

Thanks Sarch - I think that must be her. I only found this family because one of her granddaughters - Elizabeth Ann Farman married Thomas Wallis b. 1852 Zennor, in 1872 (She was previously married to a Berriman but I haven't found that marriage yet). Still trying to work out who his father (also Thomas) was. I think he was probably Thomas Henry the son of Nicholas & Elizabeth of Kerrow, but there is a discrepancy as censuses give him b 1821 but the baptism at Madron was 1823. Any comments?

Don't know if you had found this one but it does confirm much of the rest.
