Family of Sussanah Jenkin

Sussanah Jenkin was the fifth child of Sussanah Jewell and William Jenkin, and was baptised on 1st July 1792, in the Parish of Wendron.

An initial search of the I.G.I., has found only 1 possible marriage involving a Sussanah Jenkin, and that was to Richard Symons on the 8th of June 1811, in the Parish of Kenwyn. It is quite likely that this marriage did involve "my" Sussanah, as the Parish of Kenwyn is fairly close to the Parish of Wendon, where Sussanah was baptised.

A subsequent search of the I.G.I., has failed to locate any children born/baptised to Richard and Sussanah. This could have been for a number of reasons like; they moved to another County, migrated overseas, or maybe they never had any children at all.

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