G'day Cornish Terrier and other brilliant minds,
I have recently learnt of my 12x grt Grandfather who was one William PENROSE, supposedly born either in 1560 in Sennen or 1548 in Botallack, both being recorded as the father of my 11x grt, Richard b.1592 of Merther who married Dennys/Dionis HOSKINS.
Apparently there is some confusion depending on whose research one looks at! One thing is clear, he was the son of Bennett PENROSE & Jane LANYON, aside from that fact the rest is an absolute mess of inconsistancies as to who was born when, who married Dionis HOSKINS and how old they were when they were giving birth to the following generations!
The PENROSE "facts" as recorded by either lds.org family trees or the monkey-puzzle trees to be found on Ancestry:
Grandparents (13xgrts): Bennett PENROSE born c1519, Sennen and Jane LANYON born c1519, Cornwall, married c1556, Sennen. I don't know who found these dates but I have not been able to confirm any of them as yet.
Father (12xgrt), no mother known:
William b1548 Botallack -d1640 Merther.
William b1560 Sennen-d1640 Merther, this William rather cleverly married Elizabeth ENYS twice, the first time was the year before he was born, 1599, and the second time when he was 11 years old, in 1571!!!
William is blamed for the birth of the following:
Un-named dau 1567-1640
Un-named dau 1576
Un-named dau 1578
Richard 1580-1624 +++ (see below)
The next generation is equally as clever...
Richard 1580-1624+++ then marries Dennis Unknown and has the following (in his infancy!):
Nicholas 1580 (born same yr as Dad???)
William 1584-1671 (marries Barbara) (Dad now 4yrs old)
Now I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but even I can tell that there are just one or two rather glaring errors to be found in that lot??? Is anyone working on this era who might be able to help me sort out this lot PUHLEEESE?
Any assistance muchly appreciated!
