Hi Sharryn,

I noted after we added you to the Cornwall team your maiden name Bolitho. Recently we added to the Cornwall Notables page

He was born Madron about 7 mile from Morvah where your ancestors were.

Hi Sharryn,

The England Project Leaders check-in with the members every six months to see how people are getting on. How are you doing? I notice you have yet to choose which team you’d like to be on. Are you having difficulty deciding and can I help you with that? One requirement for membership in the project is that you contribute to a team at least once every six months.

Please respond to me via e-mail.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

G'day Sharryn. I have noticed that you have been working on a number of Joiner profiles (and not just recently) and I want to draw your attention to the Joyner/Joiner one name study that I have started and been working on. See the G2G question for more information. I have already started on some Victorian source indexes (for example Vic Marriages) but will be adding more over time as I get more advanced.

Hi Sharryn

We sent you a message about a week ago about the England Project but have not yet heard back from you. If we don't hear from you by this time next week we'll assume you no longer wish to be in the project.

Many thanks,

Hi Sharryn,

Concerning William Jilbert, the only reference I could find for his birth was "Cornwall OPC Database, Baptism of William Jilbert baptised 14 October 1770 in St Levan son of William and Martha. Transcribed by Pat Banks, citing Transcribed Baptisms: Apr. 1700 – Dec 1812, originally transcribed by W. Treffry Hoblyn in 1931 and presented to the Library by the Transcriber. ( Accessed 7 January 2019)" Later in life, I'm sure he went by the name Jelbart which is the name he wrote his will in. I have updated his profile, with the reference and added an aka for Jelbert so that people can find him. Thanks for drawing my attention to his profile that I adopted some time ago. Sandra

Just a comment on Bennet Pascoe - all of the entries on MyHeritage that relate to birth in 1565 are "Circa" as there is no definitive baptism record - so he was probably born between 1555 and 1565 - any later and he could not be married in 1681. It is not a common name so it is likely to be just the one individual.

You added the 1938 marriage source to instead of the correct 1934 source
