    3. Hi Lari, that is great. Wills can be the most wonderful documents, and probably do more to bring a family alive than anything else (apart from photos of course!) I would agree that this proves that Amos rightly belongs to the family of Thomas and Ann (nee COLLETT) DOWRICK rather than that of Thomas and Ann (nee LUG) DOWRICK. As you're probably aware Thomas DOWERICK (of Veryan) married Anne COLLET at Philleigh (her parish) on 12 Feb 1771, witnesses were Joshua BEHENNA and Richard COLLETT (this info from the OPC database). The date 31 October 1814 is presumably when the will was executed, does it give a death date for Thomas?

I think this is Ann Lugg, married to the mariner Thomas Dowrick. They have a couple of sons and a grandson born in Falmouth leading me to think that they never left that area. I've also received the will for Benedict Kitto, bricklayer dated Mevagissey December 1837 which states his daughter, Catherine Kitto is the wife of Amos Dowrick. It makes no mention of a previous marriage to Thomas Frances Webb. I do believe though that this is the case even if it is not mentioned in Benedict Kitto's will. Ok That's it.

    1. Re: [DOWRICK] Amos Dowrick 1790, miller of Veryan
    2. Peter Brooks
    3. Hi Lari, well, what a quiet bunch our listers are... there are other people on this list, honest. I'm in danger of repeating myself but I would say that you should treat with the greatest of caution any 'pedigrees' that you find on the LDS familysearch site - or ancestry, or anywhere else on the web for that matter. All too often people jump to conclusions or re-use someone elses 'research' without validating it for themselves. I haven't seen any proof that Amos is the son of Thomas and Ann (nee LUG) DOWRICK, as we can't find a baptism entry for him. Hopefully the 1814 will of Thomas that you have ordered will give you some useful information. It does look as though the name Amos was in use by the COLLETT family and branches, and I like your line of thought. Playing devils advocate for a second though, it could equally well be the name of his fathers best friend :-) Anyone else got any ideas?

It seems odd that this family would be having a child in Veryan in the middle of their family being born in Falmouth. The death dates for both Thomas Dowrick and Ann Lugg are the same as the death dates for Thomas Dowrick and Ann Collett of Veryan in some sites. When I looked for the given name Amos, I found that Ann Collett has a brother Amos (Collett), an uncle Amos (Jennings) and a grandfather Amos (Jennings). As far as I could see there had never been an Amos Dowrick before the marriage of Ann Collett to Thomas Dowrick of Veryan. It seems very likely that he is son to Ann Collett, not to mention his sister's name is Biddy (nickname for Bridget) which is Ann Collett's mother's name.

    1. [DOWRICK] J Dowrick, miner, Ireland
    2. Peter Brooks
    3. Just found a reference to a J. DOWRICK working as a miner in 1855 at the Irish Consols Mine at Spanish Cove, Co Cork, Ireland. (after googling I think this may be somewhere around Crookhaven, near the end of the Mizen peninsula). This is in a book 'The Metal Mines of West Cork' by Diane Hodnett (ISBN 978 0 904 040 838). J DOWRICK had a correspondence with William Walker, engineer, that starts with the former complaining about the extravagance of the house built to house the stamps (the machinery for crushing ore). Cornish miners were highly mobile, often emigrating from their native county (or country) to find work in other mines. I don't have this book - in fact I was just leafing through it in a bookshop, so can tell you nothing more. Cheers Peter

    1. Re: [DOWRICK] Thomas Dowrick and Ann Lugg
    2. Peter Brooks
    3. Hello again Lari. (There are other people on this list, honest!) Well, I've had a look through the assorted jumble of papers that constitute my records. A couple of things that may be of interest to you. A tree sent to me by Carol Hughes (a researcher from Ruan) has Anne (nee Collett) wife of Thomas DOWRICK as dying 2 Sep 1826 at Veryan. As this is a specific death date I think it will be taken from a gravestone (whether it is the correct Anne or not is another matter). She has this Thomas bpt 14 Apr 1746 at Ruan, d. 20 Sep 1814 at Veryan, them married at Philleigh 12 Feb 1771 and children listed as Richard Collett, William, Nancy, Sarah, Thomas, Susanna. A parish census of Veryan was taken in 1821 and (unusually) this survives. It recorded a very basic level of detail about the head of each household and numbers of children. David James transcribed and published this census in 1995, expanded with additions from his own research. I have a photocopy of the 'D' page and his entry for an Ann DOWRICK is as follows: DOWRICK, Ann. Widow. Portloe. (p.9) F. 70+. Formerly Ann LUG who m. Thomas DOWRICK, mariner, at Falmouth 1787. Ann d. 1826 aged 78 (M.I. A32) Sons: Amos, Wm., Thos., Richard Dau: Mary, Biddy. (From WIll of Thos.1814) So this looks like two different interpretations. Most interesting is the mention of a will for Thomas... The only will for a Thomas DOWRICK for 1814 that I know of is for Thomas DOWRICK, butcher. Unfortunately I don't have a copy but I would say that it would be well worth you obtaining one as it may contain further clues - if he had an extended family then you would think any surviving members might get a mention. By the way there is only one Veryan gravestone with a Thomas DOWRICK (died 20 Sep 1814 aged 69) and wife Ann (died 2 Sep 1826 aged 78). All the above illustrates the difficulties in positively identifying couples with common names like Thomas and Ann(e) in parish records. I presume you have gone backwards by the proper route of civil records (birth, marriage, death) followed by census? Who are you related to with regard to the children?

    3. Hi Maureen, I've had a look at the 1891 census and the writing of the surname is very poor... could you confirm that you know that this persons surname was actually DOWRICK (maybe from some other source)? I don't always trust Ancestrys interpretation of the writing :-) In 1891 this individuals trade was 'Blast Furnace Man' (working in an iron works in other words). DOWRICK is very much a west country name. Have you found this individual in the 1881 census (where he might be with his parents if aged around 10)? Just had a quick look at the 1881 census for Scotland, no Peter DOWRICK but there is a DARROCH and a DORACHIE. This is the other possibility of course - that the enumerator wrote what he heard - a thick Scots accent saying DARROCH could easily sound like DOWRICK. Anybody else got any ideas? Regards Peter Hello I am looking for information about a Peter Dowrick on the 1891 English Census Cumberlain Whitehaven England. He was born about 1871 and he was from Scotland. He was living with a Patrick Walls from ireland. They were in the mines in Whiehaven. he was a boarder with Patrick Walls. Any information would be helpful. Thank you. Maureen
