1. Robert Glasson buried at Cubert 9th February 1834 age 84
2. Robert Glasson buried at Kenwyn 19th April 1833 age 85
and then there is a burial at Crowan for 7th October 1809 for a 69 year old Robert - making a birth around 1740. This is likely to be the "Robin" you mention and therefore son of John Glasson and Ann Perkin - and who I have married to Jane Hampton.
I do have the 1749 Robert as the son of Robert and Susannah and married to Eleanor Thomas. Given the Elizabeth Arthur issue I am just starting to doubt myself a bit.
I certainly think that we are missing some data and one source of that shortage must be Illogan. Also places like Constantine/Falmouth etc keep popping up and it is possible that there may be more in those places perhaps?
Just thought I'd "pop" this thread up again re: lilybee and cornishglassons.
My 3X great-grandfather, Henry Semmons, was the proprietor of the Cornish Mount Inn when it was to be sold in 1855. The lease was on the lives of John Pool (68), Henry's wife Mary (Bartle) Semmons (42), and Elizabeth Curry, daughter of John Ward and (Henry's sister) Jennifer.
Also, in 1861, James Pooley, husband of Eleanor (Semmons -- sister of Henry) was innkeeper and butcher at/of the St Aubyns Arms Hotel.
I am working on the Semmons/Semmens/Semmons line of my family, and I believe Alice Symons, wife of Francis Pool, was the daughter of Joseph Symons and Alice Thomas. If so, her father, Joseph's parents were Joseph Symons and Prudence Williams.
I am not sure if the elder Jospeh may have been a sibling or cousin to the William Symons who with wife, Anne (last name unkown) were the parents of William Symons and Honour Hockyn, my ancestors.
I have about 20 innkeepers/farmers/butchers and a maltster or two in my line so far. Semmons/Ward/Pooley/Harvey lines are very entwined, with Glassons mixed in here and there by marriage. So far, I have found that the Pools and Pooleys are separate and distinct families.
Are we having fun yet?

A third Pool son, James b 1799 in Crowan, married another Glasson girl, Mary b 1800 but she is not a sister of Eleanor and Hannah and I have yet to trace to which Glasson family she belongs. Can I ask if you have a Mary Glasson b 1800 in your line?
I was reading through this thread and had cause to once again ponder who Mary is. I cannot remember whether or not we decided who she was.
I believe she is the daughter of Richard Glasson and Phillipa Edyvean who were married in 1799 at Breock. The two Richard Glassons, witnesses, would have been Mary's father and brother. Mary was baptised on the 17th October 1802 at Breock, the next child following the birth o fher brother Richard in 1800. A lot of this family went to Australia.
Mary died as you say later in the thread in 1844 and James remarried Ursula in 1845 at Manaccan.
