Hoping someone may be able to assist me in locating the parents of the above: THOMAS RIDDLE born c 1816 from census he was born Redruth and his wife LOVEDY JAMES born c 1815 in REDRUTH also, I know they were married in March Quarter by bdm uk ....3 children and have 1841 & 1851 census details, the ship they came to South Australia on and info from then on. ANY assistance with their parents etc I would be grateful thankyou Joanne

Joanne - Lovdy and Loveday are the same and you can also find the name as LOUDY, particularly from earlier registers. Usually that is simply a transciber's interpretation of the writing but sometimes it does actually look like Loudy.
Loveday from Cury might not be the one you want but it would be worth trying to do a little research on her even if it is just to eliminate her from the equation.
