    • "The groom was William CUNDAY, a Bachelor of this parish. The bride was Mary HOBB, a Widow of this parish. They were married by banns by the curate, Nicholas DYER on 18 January 1786. They both signed their own names. The witnesses were John WADE (who signed) and John CUNDAY (who made a mark)."

      Above information received from archivist at Cornwall Family History Centre citing microfiche of marriage at St. Stephens by Saltash.

      [If Mary was actually a widow at the time of this marriage, then we must assume the first time she married she was still a very young woman, given the number of children she had after her marriage to William. What Mary HOBB's maiden name was is unknown but there must be a strong connection to a HOSKIN line given it's inclusion in four of her children's names. There was a Mary HOSKIN, baptized 23 May 1766 in Pillaton, to John HOSKIN and Joan. (Parish register) No marriage has yet been found for a Mary HOSKIN to a HOBB in this time frame which might leave her a widow.

      As it stands, William and Mary were the parents of 17 children born over a period of 26 years; while not impossible, it is staggering. It has been suggested that William married a second time, thus accounting for the large number of children. Unless he married another "Mary", it appears she outlived William. Mary can be found in the 1841 census, age 75, living with (presumably) her daughter Harriett's illegitimate daughter, Elizabeth CUNDY; they were in Botus Fleming where William had just died a year earlier. This age would place her birth in the appropriate time frame. Also, in the 1851 census Mary appears as a "grandmother" in the home of Cornelius CUNDY, her daughter Betty Hoskin CUNDY's illegitimate son. Unfortunately her age is given as 65 on the original census, which confuses the issue; nevertheless it could simply be an error for 85. Until further documentation is located it may be almost impossible to make further conclusions.] (Anne Brooks) [3, 4, 5]
