I'm wondering what happened to Richard Trerise, son of Richard Trerise and Margaret Curnow, who was baptized 17 Sep 1843 in Phillack.
His mother was the sister to my ancestor Peter Curnow. The last I find of Richard Jr. was in 1871. I can find no marriage or death so I'm thinking he might've gone to the US or Australia. Thanks for any guidance!

I have Richard and Margaret in my database but as yet I have not pursued any children.
FamilySearch has Census records online for US as well as UK so if you suspect young Richard may have headed your way then you could start by checking the 1880 and then 1900 Census. The surname might be a bit tricky in transcriptions but it is certainly worth a try.
Richard Trerise and Margaret Curnow had two children, both born in Phillack... Richard Jr, baptized 17 Sep 1843 and Elizabeth Mary Carlyon Trerise, baptized 19 Jan 1849
Elizabeth married Richard John Glanville in 1875 and had 4 children that I know of: Caroline Penrose Glanville (1876), Richard Trerise Glandville (1877), John Sidney Glanville (1879), and Edward Ernest Glanville (1882). The first three were baptized in Phillack and the last in Camborne. Elizabeth Mary Glanville died 26 Oct 1921 at Phillack and Richard John Glanville died 30 Sep 1913 at Phillack.
I've already looked at both the 1880 and 1900 but didn't see anything that seemed like it could be him... but I agree with you, the transcription of the name could make it difficult to find.

As a miner Richard may have gone to a number of places including South Africa. I have looked at South Australian records and can find no record of any Trerise in the marriages or deaths and no sign of Richard in the Victorian Pioneers Index. I also tried a simple search of marriages and deaths in New South Wales but there is no sign of him there either. You could also try New Zealand (BDM Indexes available online) but I would be inclined to think South Africa might be the option with Mexico and parts of South America (e.g. Brazil) also possibilities.
While I can't prove it is the person you are looking for, there is a Richard Trerise who died in South Africa (almost certainly in or near Cape Town) about 1920.
The National Archives of South Africa Database (online) shows several entries which suggest that a Richard Trerise lived for some years in South Africa, and that he may have married and had children. The reference to railway pension may indicate a man born by the early 1840's.

The majority of the references above are from the Cape Town repository, so most likely the Richard Trerise mentioned (and possible children) lived in what was then Cape Province (now Western Cape), quite possibly in Cape Town itself.
