ABT 1745
St Columb Minor, Cornwall[1]


St Columb Minor, Cornwall
Will made 16.7.1813, and proved St Columb Minor, 21.8.1823. He made his mark. Witnesses (signed) R.George, John Trebilcock and George Brown. Probate record describes him as 'yeoman'.
Appoints grandson John, son of Richard, as executor and residual beneficiary, and gives him leasehold of Tregenna (subject to annuities to wife, daughter Ulelia, grandchildren Richard and Grace (children of son Richard), James, Ulelia and Richard (children of daughter Ulelia and her husband Richard Jacka). Wife (unnamed!!) is given leasehold tenancy of Hendra, and grandchildren James and Elizabeth (children of son James), that of Lower Treskeas in equal shares.
Note - the 1841 census shows James Tinney at Lower Treskeys (both in St Columb Minor and Mawgan in Pydar), with two of his later children. Richard and John Tinney are farming Tregenna (now close to the A3059), with Richard and James Jacka also there. John Trebilcock (the son of the John who probably witnessed this Will) is now farming Hendra with his wife Fanny, who later took her family to Australia.[2]

Surname is spelt Tinny in christening and marriage records, but Tinney in Will and in burial record.
It appears that after his wife Grace's death, he married Frances Carne aged 25, who is presumably the wife referred to in his 1813 Will. After his death, she married William Hobb in 1824 (a James Carne was a witness, but does not appear to have been a relative - he was a very regular marriage witness).

St Columb Minor, Cornwall
Cornwall R.O. has a lease dated 20.9.1797 to Richard Tinney, yeoman of St Columb Minor, of land formerly in the occupation of Geo. Stribley (= a relative of his wife?).


26 DEC 1770
St Columb Minor, Cornwall
Children are shown in the IGI, from the parish register, and all christened at St Columb Minor. The first daughter Ulalia (and of course her successor) was evidently named in honour of Richard's sister Eulalia, who had recently died.
Son John appears to have died at St Columb Minor in 1795 (possibly with two children - there are a Richard and Grace mentioned on the headstone, with no age). A similar fate appears to have befallen his cousin Richard, the son of William, in 1798. There is also a memorial to his son Richard and his wife Ann (Jacka), who died in 1860 and 1836 respectively.
Three children of this family married three children of Richard Jacka and Elizabeth Argall - see their pages for more details.
