Family of William Jewell

According to information taken from the International Genealogy Index (I.G.I.), William Jewell was baptised on the 3rd April 1711, in the Parish of Wendron Cornwall, England. William was the second child of Mathias Jewell and Jane Jenkin

A further search of the I.G.I., has discovered that William married Mary Dowah on the 15th December 1734, in the Parish of Wendron. Mary was born approximately 1714 in the Parish of Wendron to Richard and Mary Dowah. A subsequent search of the I.G.I., discovered that they only had one child, shown as being baptised in the Parish of Wendron. He was;

Matthew Jewell - baptised 23rd March 1743

A further search of the I.G.I., has failed to find any more children born to William and Mary. I have also been unable to locate any marriage involving their son Matthew. It may be that following the birth of Matthew, they could have moved to another County or migrated overseas. There is also the possibility that either William or Mary could have died not lonf after Matthew was born.

If anyone has anymore information about William and Mary and/or their son Matthew, or you feel you may be one of thier descendants, please contact me at
