Hi CT, yes of course I will send you the articles. I've just found another report, this time using the search of 'inquest' in October 1839 newspapers in Cornwall, and have found that the inquests into four of the crew were held at Rame. Again the crew are not named (arrgghh) although some of them are in one of the articles on the account of the shipwreck. I guess those four crew would have been buried at Rame as well. I'll send all snippets to you now

Thanks Polly - I have just received and read the notices you sent. It would seem James Quick was either the mate or the other hand that remained on board with the skipper. Pity only the two survivors were named but I am sure there can be no doubt now that we have found our man and that the 1839 St Germans death certificate will be his.

My conclusion quite some time back was that Ambrose was the illegitimate son of Caroline Ann Polgrean. She was baptized at Ludgvan 24th December 1848 to parents James Polgrean and Caroline Catran but was actually born in 1841 and thus about 16 or 17 when Ambrose was born.
It is interesting to note that Ambrose, who married in 1885 as stated by you and others, had a second child in 1888 named Caroline. The first child, also a daughter was named Mary Maude and she was probably named for his wife who was also Mary Sarah Osborne.
