Hi all, and greetings, I've been looking for a while now and wonder if anyone out there can shed some light for me. The surnames I'm looking for are those listed above, all from the Illogan/Camborne/Redruth area, although the Pryor's seem to have started out in Mawgan-in-Meneage (Helston area) I've traced the Carpenter family back as far as John Carpenter (b.1791) who married Susanna Jelbert(Gilbert) (b.30 Nov 1788)of Illogan in 1808, she was the daughter of Andrew Gilbert and Mary ____ (?) The Sparnon family, I've traced as far back as 1655. Any help would be greatly appreciated, likewise any help I can forward to you would be freely and happily given..

That'll be Amy DORMAN. I've got their marriage dated as Christmas Eve, 1746. I didn't manage to get any further than that though, came up against an acute lack of records. Things to attend to next time I'm in Cornwall, I suppose!!

G'Day Bruce, Just wondering, did you manage to get any more on Thomas and Catherine? I came up against a brick wall and, search as I might, I can't seem to make any headway. Just wondering if you'd anything to get me started again? Appreciate the help Ted

Ted - another case of 'curious spelling' involved!
Thomas JULBART married Catherine (surname not recorded) 17th June 1704 at Illogan
Source - CFHS Marriage Index
John JULBART married Elizabeth (not recorded) 1st July 1704 at Illogan
Richard JELBORT married Elizabeth (not recorded) 29th January 1710 at Illogan
I think it would be fair to say that we may be dealing with sibilings here. These appear to be the only male marriages for this name (spelled with 'J' instead of 'G') at Illogan until 1798.
If we look prior to 1738 with the surname beginning with 'G' then we have these at Illogan:-
William GILBERT married Abigail 31st October 1668 John GILBERT married Jane 20th December 1684 Richard GILBART married Margrit 9th August 1715
Given there is only 16 years between the marriage of William and Abigail and that of John and Jane I would think that these are not father and son although John may be responsible for at least some of those married in the years after 1700.
And with these being the only apparent marriages for the families recorded it would appear that they may not have originated at Illogan.
It is also interesting to note that there are no female marriages for these families prior to 1733, 1735 and 1736 after which there is a void until 1752, 1755 and then 1767 after which they become a little more regular. This might be further indication that the family was from elsewhere.

Thanks once more CT!!! I now have no idea where to even start looking for where they might have come from. I agree that it looks suspiciously like they came from other pastures. But at least I'll have a bit of fun trying to see if there's an immediate family link between them. regards as always Ted
