James, son of Francis and Prudence, was baptized 25 July 1664 at Cubert (per IGI). He was living at Camborne in 1689 when his daughter Ann was born at Illogan (per OPC). His next daughter, baptized at Camborne in 1695, was named Prudence, supporting the supposition that James, baptized at Cubert was the same as James of Camborne.
