Funnily enough, the Edward Hain who married Mary Williams is my 4th great granduncle. I don't have any information on his wife though apart from the marriage date. I am sure there must be a connection to my other Williams family as the name Garland wasn't common in St Ives. Will have to pursue this further.
There only seems to be one Mary Williams baptised at around the right time to be Edward's wife, ie: Mary Williams, dau of John & Mary, bapt. 12 April 1784 (The only other one was dau of John & Ann, bapt on 28 September 1777, but it appears she died and they baptised another Mary in 1801 )
Will have a look at John and Mary Williams' other children and try to find a possible marriage for them.
I've got so many brick walls I could build a Mansion!
This thread has wandered about but I think at the beginning you were looking for a death between 1851-61 for John Williams. Cornwall opc database has in St Ives 9 Feb 1855 John age 78 20 Oct 1856 John age 6 3 Dec 1856 John age 68 from the 1851 details it looks like the last one is the closest
I now have a Knight problem of my own - 26 April 1846 at Madron Thomas Inch (son of THomas & Grace of St Austell) married Mary Ann Knight
according to census detail she was born Penzance 1821 but I cant find her in Penzance before marriage or a local baptism - the nearest appears to be (from Family Search) to William & Rebecca at Redruth Bible Christian Chapel.
No sign of a suitable marriage except (and this is a real longshot) William Knight, Naval Lieutenant to Maria Rebecca(yes so she would be another Rebecca Knight!!!) Hamilton (widow) at Mylor in 1820. And no sign of them in 1841 either.

Give a Knight an Inch
Had a look at that 1732 Marriage of John Williams als Gillen and, unless they had several kids elsewhere, it would appear there was only one daughter, Elizabeth, baptised in 1733. Next record of a child to a John Williams is not for another 10 years.
And if you are interested his wife Mary DAVY, widow, appears to have been:-
Vincent DAVY m. Mary OATES 10th July 1727 Lelant
There is a burial for Vincent DAVY at St Ives in John Tanner's Burial Transcript.
I also tried searching on GILLEN as a christian name but it mostly brought up Julian, Juliana, Gillian etc and nothing of any real help.
Londoner - I will try to have a search and see if I can find anything of use to you with your little problem also.
