Family of William Jenkin


William Jenkin was the first child of Sussanah Jewell and William Jenkin, and was baptised on 10th June 1787, in the Parish of Wendron.

Given that Sussanah and William Jenkin had another child approximately 2 years later, which they also named William, it is safe to assume that William died as an infant. An all to common occurance in the l700's. At this stage I have not discovered any record of his death and/or where he was buried. It was quite common in those days to bury infants in open graves, so it maybe that I will never find out where he is buried.

If anyone has any information about William please contact me at bruce@jewell.asn.au.
