Family of George Jewell


According to information taken from the International Genealogy Index (I.G.I.), George Jewell was baptised on the 12th May 1616, in Marhamchurch, Cornwall, England. He was the oldest son of Digory Jewell and Johan Shearme

A search of the I.G.I., has found only 1 possible marriage of a George Jewell around the time he may have married. It occured on the 8th of September 1664, in the Parish of Bodim, Cornwall, to Grace Frostt. Assuming George was baptised soon after his birth, he would have been around 48 when he married. Also the Parish of Bodim, is not near Marhamchurch.

A further search of the I.G.I., has failed to find any record of any children. It maybe that they never had children, moved to another county, or even migrated overseas. Hopefully one day I will learn what became of George and Grace, assuming the marriage of George I mentioned above did involve "my" George. If anyone has anymore information about George, or you feel you may be one of his descendants, please contact me at bruce@jewell.asn.au
