Ah but if I hadn't said it you wouldn't have found the marriage - I guess Mr Peak didnt last long - Sarah is a widow by 1871 and reverts to Farman after that. But in 1901 she is Peak again - maybe whoever filled in the 81 & 91 didnt remember she wasn't Farman. and there is a death in 1901 in Devonport - where she was living with daughter Elizabeth and family.

No - I had looked at and considered that one but ultimately rejected it.
For a start both were born in Penzance according to the 1851 Census.
In 1861 they are still childless and both still stating they were born at Penzance. Also in the household is Samuel Wallis age 40, also born Penzance and brother to Thomas. And Thomas gave his occupation as 'baker'.
More importantly - in 1861 Thomas and Mary were at Tregarthen, Zennor where the children were born! ;D
Going down to the Coast tomorrow so will get to it when I get back
Hopefully my internet line will have improved as well by the time I get back as at the moment my broadband line is sooo slow its like having my first dial up modem that I had in the dark ages - pulling my hair out here
