All children's christenings are recorded in the IGI (from parish registers) - Jane Ann's is given as both in St Enoder on 28th May 1838 and in St Columb Minor on 7th October, and all the others are in Mawgan in Pydar.

They are with his mother in 1841, and also a William Tinney aged 15.
In 1851 they appear to have a separate household, with Richard's sister Jane and family next door, and then his mother.
In that census they have a visitor Maria Kendall, 34, with four of her children. She was born at Mawgan, but appears to be a friend rather than a relative.
