Elusive Edwin Harry son of Thomas Harry & Elizabeth Edwards born June 1840 in Lelant. He is on both 1841 & 51 census then disappears, reappears in 1876 marrying a Grace Harry who I know nothing about. They then turns up in Northcote, Victoria, Australia where a number of his siblings were living to die in 1998. I have found the marriage index for a Grace & Edwin marrying in Penzance, and Edwin's will leaves everything to wife Grace.
I Would like to know a bit more about Grace & where she came from & where was he for 20yrs I have checked that he was not residing with his remaining siblings........
Edwin's death cert from memory says that he married in St Ives. However I have not seen the marriage cert for myself. St Ives though was in the Penzance civil registration district. Where Edwin was between 1851 and 1876 I cannot say. Have you checked census records to see if he was elsewhere in the UK in the 1861 & 1871 censuses? There would not be too many with that name and with a birthplace of Lelant.
