Hi James Ninnes was born about 1794 in St. Ives, Cornwall England. He married Mary Green from Bristol, Somerset on 10 Feb 1817 in Walcott, Somerset. They had 2 sons that I know about, James Walker Ninnes b 1818 and William Ninnes b 1819 both in Liverpool, Lancashire, England. In 1840 both sons are married and in Somerset. Later they moved to Sussex. He was a Jeweller as were both his sons.

Elizabeth - you are forgetting James son of Nicholas and Ann who was baptised at St Ives 7th April 1793.
Your birthdate for James is no doubt approximated from Census and/or death or burial records which are notoriously inaccurate so it will not be easy to determine which of a possible three James this might be.
One of them was buried at St Ives 26th January 1794 as an infant. He would be either the son of James and Jane (more likely) or the son of Nicholas and Ann.
As James and Mary named a son William I would be inclined towards the son of William and Mary but at this point that is not enough evidence to be certain.
CT no need to duplicate the work done in the previous thread Ninnes of St Ives - we concluded that James who went to Bath had to be the son of Jane and Jane because she remarried John Stephens and James' sister Jane and her half sister Ann Stephens follows James to Sussex!
(Sue did most of the work but I helped a bit )

Cornish Terrier. Thanks for the information about the beerhouse keeper. I had seen it before but ignored it. On reflection there might be something in it because Mary Ninnes (nee Green) died in Brighton in 1852. This allows enough time for James to have a child 8 years old in 1861 (Census year) and as they were born in Brighton they might be unknown relatives of mine. I live in Australia and find it difficult tracking information so any help is most welcome.
If you have a read through the entire thread “Ninnes of St Ives”, which you started on 7 May, you will see that Londoner & I did a bit of ferreting that weekend on your family in the 19th century.
Regarding your James Ninnes born c 1794 who married Mary Green, this included identifying the fact that he married a 2nd time, to Eleanor Nash just inland from Brighton, a few months after Mary died - & thus your William Ninnes had 3 half-siblings, the boys becoming a headmaster and a gardener respectively.
HI, I believe I may be ablet o give you more information about the Ninnies family who married into the Anderson family - charles in ealry 1800's. Charles Anderson of Ireland married Elizabeth Ninnes of whose mother was from Redruth I will get the informaton from my fathers's records of the family tree and if it links with your informaton I have all the records of the family in Llan south wales uk to date.
