Family of Richard Jewell

According to information taken from the International Genealogy Index (I.G.I.), Richard Jewell was baptised on the 23rd December 1630, in Marhamchurch, Cornwall and was the seventh child of Digory Jewell and Johan Shearme

A further search of the I.G.I., discovered a number of marriages involving Richard, however the most likely appears to be to a Jane Peek on the 21st of February 1671, in the Parish of Bodim, Cornwall.

A subsequent search of the I.G.I., has failed to locate any children born to Richard and Jane. It may be that they moved to another County, migrated overseas, or never had children at all. There is also the possibility that this marriage did not involve "my" Richard.

If anyone has anymore information about Richard and Jane, or you feel you may be one of their descendants, please contact me at
