Individual notes follow. . St. Erth, Cornwall, Parish Register, LDS film #1595497. . St. Uny Lelant, Cornwall, Parish Register, LDS film #1595781. ................... Notes coded to letters ( ) in body of info: a. P.C.C., 1655, folio 446, Will of Edward Hamton, dyer, of St. Erth, dp. 28 Nov. 1655. Written 7 Feb. 1654/5. Names wife Ellinor; grandchildren-- sons and daughters of James Hamton; son Robert Hamton; sisters-in-law Ann Winch and Frances Kent. b. Date from St. Erth P.R. Surname not given. Will of Christopher Cock, gent, of Helston (Archdeaconry of Cornwall, AP/C/1812, dp. 28 July 1679) mentions daughter Ann Hampton, and leaves legacies to each of her six children, given as the children of "Robert Hampton of St. Erth." c. St. Erth P.R. Age 86 years. d. Elizabeth Bennatts was the widow of Thomas Bennatts of Lelant, and the mother of Amy Bennatts who married Robert's son James. e. St. Erth P.R. "....killed at wheal fortune." Apparently a mining accident. f. That Edward was the same man who married both Dwens and Elinor is proven from the fact that Edward's childless sister-in-law, Frances Kent, did not name James Hampton or his children in her will. Since she left lagacies to each of her brothers and their children, and to her nephew Robert and his 3 children, the fact that James was not mentioned certainly proves that she had no nephew James; ie: that James Hampton was not the son of Elinor, but of an earlier marriage of Edward. Edward in his 1655 will states that James had "sons and daughters," so he must have had at least 4 children by that time. Had he been the son of Elinor, then there should have been some record of this James and his family at St. Erth or Lelant. But the only James found was at Lelant and had children born in the 1620s and 1630s, including a son Edward and a daughter Dwens. This James is obviously a son of the Edward Hampton/Dwens marriage, and must be the son referred to in Edward's will. Edward must have been married to Dwens quite young (about 21), and married Elinor as a second wife in his late 40s. g. St. Erth P.R. This child is recorded as a daughter of ROBERT Hampton, but the only Robert in the parish at the time was James' father, twice widowed. Unless Robert had an unknown, third wife, then this child was probably the daughter of James, and the clerk made an error when recording the entry (this happens with some frequency). The only other explanation for this entry is that the elder Robert and wife Grace had another son Robert (no christening recorded) who may have had a child baptized at St. Erth. However, there is no marriage or death found for another Robert. h. St. Uny Lelant P.R.: Banns called 11, 18 and 25 May 1760. Robert and Jane, apparently both illiterate, signed with their marks, Robert with an "R," Jane with an "H." Witnesses were Richard Hawes, the bride's father and also parish clerk, and Samuel Uren. i. Lelant P.R.: Edward Richards, base child of Jane Hampton was christened 3 Oct 1790 and buried 6 Jul 1791. Jane married the father of the child nine years later. Witness was Robert Hampton, probably Jane's brother, who was later parish clerk. j. International Genealogical Index, England, Cornwall. k. Thomas' wife was his first cousin, and sister to his brother John's wife. Thomas and Gertrude had five children, but none lived to adulthood. l. Lelant P.R.: Banns called 7, 14 and 28 October 1804. John and Catherine both signed with an "O." Witnesses were Catherine Hawes, the bride's mother, and Jane White. m. Edwin Hampton, base son of Eliza Hampton, was christened 13 June 1858 at Madron, and buried 8 July 1859 at Lelant, residence given as Balnoon. n. State of Pennsylvania Death Certificate of Joseph Hampton (file #35913, 18 April 1914) gives his date of birth as 13 June 1845, but as he was christened in July 1844, it is obviously off by one year. His birthplace is listed as England and his parents as John Hampton and Eliza Glasson. U.S. Civil War Pension application #191899, for the minor children of William and Sophia Marr (Joseph's stepchildren) gives the date and place of his marriage to Sophia. o. State of Victoria Death Certificate #370, 29 Nov 1915, John Hampton. p. St. Uny Lelant, Bishop's Transcripts, Cornish Studies Library, Redruth. Note: Elinor's parents are still unknown. Her siblings were Frances m. William Kent, Ann m. Thomas Winch, James, Anthony and Walter Tresise. The will of Frances Kent (Archdeaconry of Cornwall, AP/K/286, dp. 26 Feb 1669/70) names the three brothers, and names "cousin" (ie: nephew) Robert Hampton of St. Erth, and his children, with Robert's eldest son Edward as the residual legatee. q. Charles G. Henderson, "Calendars of Cornish Manuscripts" Vol. 30, pp. 238 and 240. Painter Deeds, #44 and #52. Robert Hampton is listed as a resident of Lanuthnoe in St. Erth in 1661 and 1676. r. The 1662 and 1664 Hearth Tax for Lelant shows Edward Hampton (son of James) and Frances Hampton, widow, together. Since Edward named a daughter Frances, this is probably his mother. s. Perhaps the Mary Hampton who married John Lanyon on 22 April 1710 at Redruth. t. Samuel Blight and Elizabeth Vivian were married at St. Erth on 18 August 1746. Samuel was buried on 27 Feb 1747/8. u.
