    I cannot find the above in the 1841 census.
    Looking online hasn't been any help unless I am looking in the wrong places.
    Betsy Beaden Matthews was born in 1821 and her parents were Robert and Margery Rowe.
    No sign of Betsy but her her father is Piece: HO107/143/10 Place: Penwith -Cornwall Enumeration District: 22
    Civil Parish: Paul Ecclesiastical Parish: -
    Folio: 46 Page: 4
    Address: Trevithal
    There is a Betsy at St Ausell in 1841 but she is not who I am looking for.
    Betsy married in 1843.

    :oops:. I should have said that her parents were Robert and Margery Matthews. Margery's maiden name was Rowe.
    I haven't looked into the Beadon side of the family so the replies may be useful in the future.
    There are couple of Eliza Mathews/Eliza Matthews which may be her.
    Will have to leave that.
    Not related but whilst looking I found a 10 year old boy named Philip Richards and in occupation was ' schoolboy by chance' The occupation was crossed out.
    never seen that written before.

    Did Margery have a brother John?
    Maybe the enumerator left off the Matthews surname accidently or not hear it. Maybe she left it off herself. This Betsy seems all that's turned up so far.

    Just in case you do not have the information, Betsy's mother Margery was buried 30th January 1834 in Paul aged 54.

    I haven't looked into Margery's line yet.
    Thanks for the info.
    Will have to look into the Rowe side soon.

    A witness to the marriage of Robert Mathews and Margery Rowe was a John Rowe.

    OPC has four baptisms ranging from 1806 to 1821 at Paul of the children of Robert and Margery Mathews.
    Maria 1806;Robert 1810;Margery 1813;Betsey Beaden 1820.
    The surname alternate between Mathews and Matthews.
    Will have to see where the Beaden name fits in.
