It certainly seems that the Boag family were few and far between in Cornwall. The only ones I can find at the moment online are:
Richard Boag, baptised 26 December 1838 in St Dennis; Father: Zebedee Boag, Mother: Sarah.
Charlotte Boag, who in the 1861 Census aged 24 and living in Padstow. Address: Fentonluna Lane, Ivey Cottage, Padstow. She was with a Mary Edwards age 71 who was born in Tenby. Charlotte is listed as 24 years old, Housekeeper, born Lanteglos by Fowey, Cornwall.
Apart from these there is a Jane "Bog" who was baptised 9 August 1612 at Linkinhorne, Father: Gregory Bog.
I have searched the Cornwall Record Office catalogue under Boag but there is nothing online under that spelling. I also did a quick search on National Archives, but again nothing.
I also had a quick look on the St Enoder website. There is a burial for a Henry Bone, but the surname has a question mark against it. He was buried 1 January 1881, age 80, of Enoder.
Have to go out shortly, but will try and have another look for you later.
I've got so many brick walls I could build a Mansion!

Would this family fit? I did a google search for Zebedee in Cornwall, came up with Brag, and this family on the 1881 census. Would Mary have been 25/26 when she married?

I too am experiencing computer problems..I am offline at the moment but am able to use OH's computer, when it is free.
Yes, you have found my family.
Could I ask, what the St Catherine's House Marriage, is, please ?
I am curremtly searching, for Mary Bray, pre 1885 but she is provimg to be a little harder to find, than William Arthur. I have some possibilites and am busy trying to eliminate them.
I cannot find a Baptism for her on the St Enoder ( birthplace given on 1891 census ) website. But there are Baptisms for children, to a William and MAry Bray. Also a burial, for a William Bray in 1856.
