Hannah Michell of Zennor married John Richards 'of Morvah" on 15/10/1726 at Zennor. They had at least 6 children: John, Katherine, Hannah (marr. John Curnow), Margaret (chr. 24/4/1741 at Zennor), James and Martin.
John Richards senior was buried on 24/12/1753, and Hannah on 1/12/1759, both at Towednack.
Does anyone know anything of this John's ancestry?
Thanks for pointing this out -- the docs in question give both of them as being of Zennor, so those entries will be for them.
John's admon was granted on 21/5/1754 to Hannah, widow and relict etc. He is called John R, late of Zennor. Interesting that his inventory includes a "rite (sic) in a tin mine in the parish of St Just" valued at 2.16.0 Perhaps this is a clue to his origins?
Hannah left a will proved 12.5.1760 which describes her as "of Zennor, widdo" with bequests to the following and in this order: son John, 5 shillings dau Katherine, wife of John Nennis, 5 shillings Hannah wife of John Curnow, 10 pounds dau Margaret Richards, 30 pounds sons James and Martin - residue and made executors
