Cathy - I am having a heckuva time trying to sort this lot out but I think I am gradually getting there!
I think you will find that your Simon is this one that I found in a transcript of Gwennap registers:-
SIMEON son of William and Mary Magor bp. 27th July 1808 Gwennap
I have not managed to have a look at an original as yet but I think you will find this is the one you are after.
And then there is the problem of Simon and Grace Magor ................ TIMES TWO!
You enquired about a son named Thomas - well, I think you will find that he belongs to the earlier Simon and Grace. Simon and Grace Magor baptised four children on the same day at St Day - all on 3rd March 1833:-
Simon - appears to have married an Elizabeth Sampson in 1849 and appears in the 1851 Census at St Teath age 26 (or possibly 24) Grace - married Hugh Kent (a widower) at St Agnes in 1847 and the 1851 Census shows her as age 26 Thomas - living at home with his parents in 1851 age 18 Amelia
As they were all baptised on the same day it is quite obvious they must be siblings and the Census shows that at least two were born in the mid-1820s which means they must be from the earlier marriage.
There were also two daughters baptsied at St Austell in 1820 - Elizabeth and Eliza. Eliza married Richard Barkla at Gwennap in 1842.
And then the first two children were baptised at Gwennap:- Mary Ann in 1813 Kezia in 1815 - she married Henry Nicholls Kemp at Gwennap in 1837
So I am now trying to sort out the family of the later Simon and Grace but I don't know that I will get it finished tonight.
