Shared note

There were other children baptised to a William EDDY (no mother mentioned) that probably belong to this couple. However, there were also other William EDDYs that were married and having children in Madron at the same time, so allocating children to the correct couple is difficult.

Marriages involving a William EDDY in Madron at that time: (A) William EDDY & Bridget BAYNARD«tab»19 Oct 1732 (B) William EDDY & Katherine SAMPSON«tab»2 Nov 1738 (C) William EDDY & Jane OSBORNE«tab»14 Feb 1742/43 (D) William EDDY & Dorothy POLMEARE«tab»1 May 1761

Couple (A) moved to St Just, and it appears that couple (B) moved to Zennor as that William was stated in the marriage register as being 'of Zennor', and they had children baptised in Zennor (although it is still possible that some of their children were baptised in Madron).

The gap in baptisms between 1752 and 1761 is most likely to indicate that Katherine was the last child of couple (B) or (C) baptised in Madron, and that those baptised from 1761 to 1769 belong to couple (D) - and have been allocated as such. Despite this, the interesting forename is Ralph as Jane OSBORNE's father was named Ralph. This may just be coincidence.
