Good morning CT
I was wondering if you had the 1832 marriage at Lelant between Henry UREN and Elizabeth VIVIAN in your database? I can't work it out at the moment but will explain more when I know if you have had a look at it before previously.

CT and Kernow60
Yes the second witness was Henry's brother Samuel - sons of Vincent Uren and Jane nee Bennetts.
But for the marriage it isn't that simple. The first two children were Henry Vivian Uren, and Mary Vivian Uren. Then follows a few more:- Elizabeth, Jane, Charles Morley, William, Jane, Emily Morley and Sarah Jane.
The interesting thing is that for all the children following the first two, and whose births are able to be seen on the GRO indexes, the mothers maiden name was Morley.
The family is found in the 1841 census but by the 1851 census Elizabeth, the wife, has died and her mother Christian Morley is in the household.
I will leave you to get your head around that first.

On reading your latest a logical solution sprang immediately to mind but I thought it best to check the theory before making mention of it here. Investigations proved my theory correct and it is as follows:-
Elizabeth Uren of Carnes Downs age 32 was buried at Phillack 7th January 1836
Henry Uren age 33 widower miner of Ewny Lelant son of Vincent Uren miner and Elizabeth Morley age 26 spinster of Phillack daughter of Charles Morley joiner were married at Phillack 3rd August 1837 - Witnesses:- Samuel Uren and William Morley
Elizabeth Pengeable daughter of Charles Morely and Xtian his wife was baptized at St Erth 17th May 1812
Yes CT, I came to the same conclusion. What tipped me off was Christian Morley being called a stepmother in the 1851 census as opposed to mother in law. I know that sometimes the two get interchanged but it sent me down the same path as you and I came to the same conclusion.
