    1. [DOWRICK] Amos Dowrick 1790, miller of Veryan

    3. Hi, I've been searching my grx4 grandfather Amos Dowrick c1790, a miller in Cornelly, Veryan, Cornwall. The LDS suggests that Thomas Dowrick who married Ann Lug(g) in 1787 Falmouth are his parents. I've looked around and have found a family scenario for Thomas and Ann of Falmouth of at least 2 sons, a grandson, even a burial of an Ann Dowrick in 1833 all taking place in Falmouth. 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. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of either of these families. Thanks, Lari Increase mileage 7% - 19% and Decrease emissions 30% or more!

    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?
