In 1861, Henry Carnsew (31) of Crowan, tin & copper miner, and wife Elizabeth (22) of Crowan, were living in Church Village, Crowan. Present were son Henry J. (1) of Crowan, mother-in-law Philipa Symons (59) of Crowan, widow, husband was a miner
In 1871, Henry Carnsew (40) of Crowan, miner, and wife Elizabeth (33) of Crowan, were living in Church Town, Crowan. Present were children (born in Crowan): Henry (10), scholar, Mary (9), scholar, John (5), scholar, mother-in-law Philipa Symons (69) of Crowan, widow
Henry Carnsew of Crowan died aged 43 years (burial record). As wife Elizabeth was a widow in 1881, this Henry was undoubtedly her husband. However, his age given in both the burial record and the GROE Death Index (43) is incorrect... presumably an error on the part of the informant. He was age 47.
Henry married Elizabeth SYMONS, daughter of James SYMONS and Philippa KING, about Sep 1859 in Helston District, Cornwall. (Elizabeth SYMONS was born in 1838 in Crowan, Cornwall, christened on 11 Jun 1838 in Crowan, Cornwall and died on an unknown date.)
