   Research Notes:

A private submission to the IGI shows Eliza having been born in St. Just in Roseland, 19 Dec 1813. However, this was Elizabeth, daughter of Nicholas Vincent and Jane, christened on this date. In the marriage record (to Christopher Bennett), she is shown as being of Wendron Parish. The only christening record for an Eliza Vincent in the vicinity of Wendron was May 1811 in Stithians, daughter of John Vincent and Ann


Presumably Eliza was also George Bawden's second wife.

Eliza married Christopher Smith BENNETT, son of Christopher BENNETTS and Mary SMITH, on 31 Oct 1836 in Wendron, Cornwall. (Christopher Smith BENNETT was born about 1817 in Beacon, Camborne, Cornwall, christened on 19 Jan 1817 in Camborne, Cornwall and died on 11 May 1868 in Tothill's Creek, S.A., Australia.)
