No luck with a previous post. Just wondering if there are any new thoughts on her. She is my 4 x Great Grandmother and married Justus Angwin 28 apr 1712 at St.Just I have her parents as Benjamin/Berriman Hampton and Elizabeth. They married 23 may 1687 at St.Buryan. I know that the Hampstons were mainly of St.Erth and have failed to find any indication of where Benjamin/Berriman came from. Any new thoughts would be very helpful. Both Benjamin and Elizabeth buried at St.Buryan White

I don't even have Benjamin in my database so I don't have anything to work with just yet. However I have just made myself a note to try and do some searching over the next few days to see if I might be able to come up with something useful.

I am at a loss to explain this one. There is a marriage at St Buryan on the date specified and the forename of the groom certainly begins with 'B'. Likewise the surname appears to end with 'ton' but I cannot decipher the remainder of the entry to determine exactly who this might be.
As for the baptism of a daughter in 1688, well this is a different problem again. According to Corinne Thompson who transcribed the entry for the OPC site this baptism seems to be entered at random - quote - [Transcribed exactly as it occurs in Register, but it appears to have been entered at random, so may not be correct] - endquote
I cannot find the entry in the FamilySearch images without some idea of what page it may have been found but there is another problem. The first St Buryan register ends at 1687 and the next does not start until 1691!! On top of that there appear to be no Bishops Transcripts for St Buryan prior to 1691.
The only other clues are the burials of John Hampton in 1682, Florence in 1687 and John son of Anthony Hampton in 1684 - all at St Buryan.
