Family of Henry Jenkin


Henry Jenkin was the second child of Sussanah Jewell and William Jenkin, and was baptised on 15th March 1789, in the Parish of Wendron.

It seems that Henry suffered the same fate as his older brother William, and also died as an infant, due to the fact that Henry's parents had another son later, which they also named Henry. Like William, 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 Henry please contact me at bruce@jewell.asn.au.
