Hi everyone, have spent day cross checking the Family History on Line Cornwall, with IGI records and come up with the following: I have eliminated all other Sarah Tregerthens born by that name, by their deaths recorded on IGI with their births which made it easy. The Sarah Tregerthen born St Ives 1760 to John/Sarah Tregerthen was the one who married William Purchase in 1784, had one child in 1785, and she died Sarah Purchase in 1823 age 63. YES Exact correct age. So we know our Sarah Tregerthen did not marry again. Then I found a Sarah Tregerthen died St Ives 27/11/1780, now I had already found Anthony Tregerthen had died St Ives 31/3/1780. Looks like "Old Story in letter" correct with young ANthony Brn 1778 Cr 1781. Both Parents had died year before his christening. The old letter said he was three when orphaned. The site has been well worth paying for!! So now we have sorted out Grace Dying same year as Baby 1762, All about Sarah /Anthony now only have to tackle the hard part linking back to Possible Grandparents William Tregerthen and Mary Anthony.
Will be away next two days see you when we come home.

Have established that the schooner "Ann" belong to Anthony Tregerthen son of Anthony brn 1778. This Capt Anthony Tregerthen lived in Wales. Found this on Welsh Morman History site.
I now shipped on board the schooner Ann of Newport, Captain Anthony Treegething of Llanelly, bound for Waterford Ireland. I made one voyage in her from Llanelly to Waterford and back to Bristol. I acted as mate on board of the Ann. I left the Ann in Bristol in consequence of her going for a long voyage, and that shee would not be back in time for me to emigrate with the Saints to the land of America, which was my intentions in the spring. As soon as I left the Ann, I shipped on board the Emely of Llanelly, Captain Thomas a regular Bristol trader .
I love the spelling of Tregerthen don't you, never pick that up with google search.

Hi again, Yes both Anthony and Sarahs date were from Familyhistoryonline. Cornwall BURIAL index. Agree the John Tregarthen m Elizabeth Oates 1723. family could fit , would be correct dates etc. Throw this in the pot: Two Sisters born in Stratton. To Richard and Martha Wallis. Sarah Wallis brn 18/7/1729 m John Tregerthen Stratton 4/5/1755 Sister Grace brn 2/10/1735 in Stratton, (Could this be our one that) m Anthony Tregerthen 1760 at St Ives. Stratton is long way from St Ives isnt't it? Two Brother marrying two sisters!! Leave that with you for now.

Hi, all you Tregrethen researchers! You might be interested in an original marriage licence I have for the marriage of Anthoney (sic) Tregethen (sic) to Mary David Thomas of Margam, Glamorgan, 9 July 1805? With a few pencil notes added about their daughter "Mrs Collier". Good condition, UK£35 + Postage from the UK if you are interested, How nice it would be if it were to find a good home... Good luck!
