Do you have Elizabeth Francis' maiden name? Birth year and marriage year can help.

Mind you, there are not many Francis' in Illogan itself, but plenty around Redruth.

Much appreciated Martin.
Some further reasearch.

1861 has John's sister Grace with them (47)

1851 has Grace with mother Grace (62) so born 1789-ish. Look under Frances.

1841 has Grace the mother with John.

So his mother was Grace born about 1789.

Ricchard Francis married Grace Michell (Mitchell?) 1807 Redruth. Matches well.

Grace Mitchell chr. 1790 in Budock. Several Richard Francis' born about then.

No guarantees except that his mother was Grace.
