I'm not really much help Laurie, just intrigued, I also have ancestors from the Lanivet area of Cornwall.  Mostly Marshalls and related families (I don't recall any marriages into Sowden and Northey families).

I have checked NZ Papers Past and found an obit. for a Northey from Truro & a death notice for a Northey from Redruth.

Looking at the WW1 soldiers database a Sowden was in the NZ Army and gave his next of kin as living in Saint Eval , Cornwall.

Are any of these of any interest to you?

The Northey's who went to New Zealand changed their name to Northe. There is a large family tree of the NZ Northes. A second emigration (I think a gereration later) went to Hill End a gold mining district in NSW Australia and are famous for their contribution.
