Did Ebenezer Elliott, the Rotherham poet, have any children who settled in Cornwall?

+2 votes
My great grandfather was James Elliott born 1810 in Saltash Cornwall who I think may have been the grandson of the Corn Law poet Ebenezer.  I can find no reference to Ebenezer's children, other than he had several including 4 or 5 sons, all of whom "were settled" in life.

I checked at familysearch.org on James Elliott and found a pedigree resource file that seems to have been well documented. You might want to check it out. It shows:

William Barrett Elliott, born 1844, son of James Elliott born 1810, son of James Elliott born 1780, son of William Elliot/Elliott born 1733, died 1819, had been married to Thomasine Willa.

Thank you Frank; it would seem on the face of your research, the answer to my question is probably no;  what a shame!  As a scribbler of sorts myself, I quite fancied being descended from the  Corn Law Rhymer and poet of the poor.  But  Ebenezer was born in 1781  - and all my lot seem to favour James and William as names - what a boring bunchlaugh.

Thanks again 

Rose Moreton.
