Still beavering away at the Phillips families and have come across the following:
21 June 1715 at St Erth Matthew PHILLIPS married Elizabeth BOSANKO widow of Crowan.
Matthew would appear to be a son of Henry PHILLIPS of Gulval, discussed elsewhere, but I'm very interested to find out more about Elizabeth Bosanko. Maybe Tony can help? There were various families of Bosanko baptising children in Crowan prior to 1715, but infortunately the baptisms do not name a mother.
Reginald (children 1706-1710) John (1680/90's) appears to have married Alicei 1681 John (1700-1711) Thomas (1680ish baptisms) & Thomas (married Mary 1708)
Could Elizabeth have married Reginald or John, and does anyone know her maiden name? Given that Matthew Phillips was baptised in 1660 then Elizabeth could even have been the widow of the earlier Thomas
All help gratefully received in the quest to unravel the Phillips family of Gulval and Zennor.
"A name perpetual, and a fame permanent and immortal"
I think this might be one to consider: (Phillimores Wendron Register) John Besankoe & Elizabeth Dunstone 15 Apr 1705 (Marriage)
I also think that you might be able to rule out Reginald Bosanko as he married Dorcus Nichols 3 Nov 1703 at Phillack (Phillimores even mentions that he was of Crowan)and died in 1760. Dorcus Bosanko nee Nichols had her last known child in 1712 to Reginald. Reginald juniors were born 1703 and 1706 - too young to be your Elizabeth's husband.
Thomas Bosankoe was married ?someone 18 Sep 1697 (Crowan) Thomas Bosankoe & Mary his wife 12 Feb. 1708 (Crowan) William Bosankoe & Margery his wife -- 1714 (Crowan)
Elizabeth (unknown) was married to Thomas BOSANKO (BOSANKOE)b. abt 1661 in Crowan Thomas & Elizabeth had no children. Thomas"s will was written 1709 and his death date is 7 Aug 1710 in Crowan. Elizabeth & Thomas were married in 1697 in Crowan. Thomas's will gives everything to his wife Elizabeth except 20L to his sister Alice (Bosanko) Nichols.
Thomas's parents are Thomas Bosankoe b. abt 1617 & Alice REYNOLDS
The information above was located thru wills on the Reynolds & Bosanko Families. There were a number of items that were passed down thru generations.
Back to Elizabeth. After the death of Thomas Bosanko, Elizabeth on 21 Jun 1715 marries Mathew PHILLIPS in St Erth marriage records.
I have done no further work on Elizabeth as my search is with the BOSANKO name & their was no issue from the marriage. I do not know what Elizabeth's surname was.

Welcome to the forum Cornish1 and thankyou for your input which is most interesting. Do you have any details of the marriage of the sister Alice who married a Nichols? I have had a quick search but cannot find it and I now wonder if perhaps Alice might have been married twice. If you area able to fill in a little more detail on that family it would be appreciated.
Thomas"s will was written 1709 and his death date is 7 Aug 1710 in Crowan.
Is this date of death recorded in the Will? If not then can you tell me the source and, if you have it, could you tell me the date and place of burial please. I have checked the Crowan Parish Register as well as the Crowan Bishops Transcripts and I can find no reference to this event.
Thomas Bosanko's will was written 7 Aug 1709. Proved 5 Oct 1710. Don't have a burial date but would be in Crowan. Only have information from the will which is not much. It was found on the internet as a probate abstract.
Thomas's sister Alice was married 1st to (?) HOARD then to Stephen Nichols (NICHOLIS). I have not investigated this any further. Stephen Nicholis did Witness a will in 1729 of Richard Thomas who was married to Alice's sister Elizabeth.
Of Thomas & Alice (Reynolds) BOSANKO'S children Thomas b. abt 1661 is the only son who is surviving at the time of his father's death. Don't have anything more on this Thomas Bosanko b. abt 1661. If you find some thing please let me know.

Ah yes, I do actually have a copy of that abstract in my collection and, as you say, there is not much information.
I presume that the Will of Thomas Bosanko proved at Crowan 26th January 1692 is that of the father of Thomas Bosanko of 1710? If that is the case then I further presume that it was from this Will that you learned the surname of Alice Bosanko's first husband as I have not been able to find that marriage or the marriage to Stephen Nicholas.
