Edward Bamsey of Cornwall, England, schoolmaster
I am looking for any descendants of Ellen/Helen and Edward Bamsey. They married on 2 April1866 at St Stephens by Saltash parish church in Cornwall when Ellen/Helen was aged 20.He was the son of William BAMSEY, and had been born in about 1842.He became a schoolmaster; he was resident in the parish of St Stephens at the time of his marriage.
His wife had been Ellen/Helen Pryor HODGESS before marriage.She was the eighth child and second daughter of Samuel andElizabeth HODGESS who were from Devon but she was born in Liskeard, Cornwall, in 1846 and was baptised on 15 August 1847 at Buckland Monachorum parish church, in Devon, together with her three older brothers.She was christened as Ellen, but in 1851 when she was aged 5 and was living at home in Horrabridge village with her parents and siblings, her name was given as Helen.
The only child ofHelen/Ellen and Edward BAMSEY we know about so far was as follows:
Sylvia BAMSEY, place and date of birth unknown as yet, who married a Mr WHITTINGTON.
We would like to contact any descendants.
