Family 1: Nicholas and Joane

Nicholas is probably the son of James and Mary Holman and the grandson of son of Nicholas and Elizabeth Smale.

He marries Joan - her provenance is unknown but she dies in 1752. After James' birth, they are resident in St Gennys - Family 3

  • son James 1714

Family 2: Thomas and Elizabeth Burden

Thomas 1788 is the son of John 1771 and Ann Buckingham from Bodmin and the grandson of William and Elizabeth Hobbs.

Although Thomas is born in Bodmin, his mother, Ann, was from Jacobstow and dies there a year after his birth. He marries Elizabeth Burden in 1813 in Week St Mary. Elizabeth was born in Week St Mary, perhaps in 1780.

  • son Emanuel 1814 born in Week St Mary. He marries Jane from Lamerton - Lamerton Family 1
  • daughter Jane 1817 born in Clawton - marries Joseph Southwood in Week St Mary in 1834. In 1841, the family (with sons William 1835, Thomas 1837 and John 1840) are in North Petherwin where Joseph is a farm worker. I've not been able to track them on subsequent censuses.......

Thomas dies in 1836 and is buried in Week St Mary. Elizabeth falls on hard times - in 1851, widowed and a pauper, she is lodging with Johanna Blake in Week St Mary. She dies there in 1855.
