If you are looking into the Furze/Williams relationships there were two. John Furze (abt 1764) married Constance Williams, daughter of Uter Williams and Rebecca Rowe. Their son Uter married Mary Tonkin, daughter of John Tonkin and Mary Thomas. Their son William (b.1838) married Elizabeth Jane Williams. These are my Great grandparents.
Grand father Matthew Furze 9b.1873 in St. Just) had a brother Philip (b. 1865 in Sancreed). Philip, Matt and James Furze went to the USA (Colorado first) and brother John went to South Africa. the girls, Elizabeth, Margaret and Rebecca remained in Britain.
Philip and Mary Elizabeth had one child, Mary born in Colorado. By 1910 the family lived in Lead, South Dakota. Matt, James and families also lived in Lead then. Mary Elizabeth immigrated to the US in 1889 and was naturalized in 1894. Their daughter married a man by the name of Risch, and had 3 children Robert, Shirley and Mable, all who reside in Colorado. Philip and Mary had a son William Philip who died in infancy, so when my father was born, grandpa and grandma (nee Angwin) called him Philip to honor his brother. As such I too am named Philip, after my father.
CG has most of the information from the 1910/1920 Census. I have been to both the Pioneer Cemetery near Nevadaville, Colorado and the ones in St. Just in Penwith, to confirm dates and visit grave sites. Having grown up in Lead, South Dakota among (literately) dozens of relatives, I have most of the Furze Family line from John Furze (b.1674) and wife Jane. The Furze, Eddy and Angwin lines are interwoven a couple times. Great aunt Elizabeth Furze married Peter Eddy, son of Peter Eddy and Elizabeth Harvey. The Eddy's had descendants in Lead also.
Elizabeth Jane Furze (Williams) was the daughter of John William and Elizabeth Bossence. John Furze's wife Constance, parents were Uter and Rebecca Williams.
Sorry but tracing the tree back many generations, I find no names of Wickett/Woof. I don't have a Philip Williams, he may be the brother of Elizabeth Jane, but ??
Just an after note: John Furze seems to have left Devon for Cornwall, since I have found his name Furse and Furze. His son Peter was 's' in one census and 'zed' in another!
Oh, yes Tony's Grandmother and my Grandfather were Brother and Sister. I still treasure my visit to Wales ;-)

"Great aunt Elizabeth Furze married Peter Eddy, son of Peter Eddy and Elizabeth Harvey." siranjoc, who were Elizabeth Harvey's parents? Did they live in the US? Wondering if Elizabeth is part of my Harvey folks. Cg
Phone Lady, Sorry it took so long. Peter is married a woman named Mary Cock 23 Jan 1838 John Cock and John Tregar as witnesses. Mary died at 33 years of age, Peter then married Elizabeth Harvey in 1846. The only other Harvey mentioned is Amelia Harvey as a Godparent ot Margaret Eddy, who died at age 8. Elizabeth Eddy died at 71 and was buried 25 October 1897 in the Wesleyan Cemetery, St Just.
Elizabeth's parents were Peter Harvey & Mary Toman. Grandparents; Peter Harvey & Margaret Hicks. G grandparents; Francis Harvey & Sibella Champion. G G Gp; Peter Harvey & Joan Maddern. more; John Harvey & Joan Mill, John Harvey & Alice Davies, Thomas Harvey & Alice James, Francis Harvey Sr & Mary York, Sir Anthony Hervey & Lucy Lisle (note spelling of name in 1500's) William Hervey & Joan Crockett, Thomas Hervey & Jane Drury, John Hervey & Jaon Niemyt, John Hervey, MP, of Thurleigh & Margaret Paries, John Hervey II & Joan de Engaine, William Hervey & Mary Foliot, John Hervey & Joane Harmon. This took me to the 1290's where I stopped.
In this Harvey pedigree were 1 Sheriff, 2 MP's, 5 Knights, and one Baron. (Roger de Grey, 1st Baron Grey of Ruthyn)
Where I grew up, the town was home of the Homestake Gold Mine and the many of the miners were from Cornwall. Most were supervisors as they had so much experience as 'Hardrock' miners. There were many families named Eddy, Harvey, Furze, Williams, Rowe, Trethewey, Argwin, Sampson, Hill, Jelbert, Parsons and others all from St Just Parish.

Hi Phillip, Thank you for all the wonderful information!
So! I know how Mary fits in the scheme of things.
With all those Harvey/Hervey folks in your lineup you'd think they would connect with mine somewhere - but alas, so far nothing, those I have not got back much past the 1500's.
The father of my friend worked in the Homestake mine.
Many of the folks I am following around the US came from the St. Just region and share the names you listed. Well, I am sure they will connect up in the future. I haven't retired yet, so cannot trace all those tendrils yet...
Carla, I have 2 DVD's containing information on Cornwall & Devon. Most is in PDF format and you will need Adobe reader, but there is much information, some provided by OPC (Online Parish Clerks) Online search for: '470 vintage and Rare books on Genealogy, Social History and General History of Devon & cornwall'. Philip
PS: You can purchase other DVD's on any Parish in Great Britain, if you know where the family lived.
