Ian, Two of us here near Newcastle, independently, have come to the conclusion William Harry, who married Mary Bone, was not the one baptised in 1791, but the William baptised in 1779. In 2007 you were of the opinion William 1791 had not married. I have written to Carlene. ericm
I wonder if my ancestor Katherine Harry could be one of the Harry's of Morvah. I can't identify baptism records beyond 1700 which I think would help.
Katherine Harry married William Rogers in 1724 in Madron. She dies young in 1731 after having 3 children, Philip, Amy and Hugh. I believe William was born in 1699 in Sancreed the son of William and Blanch Rogers.
Can you advise how I can confirm baptisms in Morvah Parish 1700 - 1706?

According to the CFHS Index of Baptisms for Morvah the earliest baptism for a Catherine/Katherine Harry at Morvah was 1781 with only one other of that name baptised in Morvah to 1845.
Also - according to the Madron Parish Register William Rogers and Katherine Harry were both 'of Madron' at the time of the marriage. That merely means that they were resident of the Parish at the time so they each may have originated elsewhere.
If Katherine died young it may be a little more difficult to track her down unless there is a Will that names her as a daughter of perhaps sister.
