EBBOTT family in both North Tregeare, Tresmeer & Westcot,Tremaine both parishes of Cornwall

Journal by kerbent

According to the British National Archives John Ebbott owned land in North Tregeare, Tresmeer, the parish in which he was born. He did not sell the land before he died in 1825, his widowed wife Wilmott is recorded as selling the &#8220;North Tregeare&#8221; property in 1827 along with her grandson Philip, John Ebbott's only male heir.

We also know from John Ebbott's tombstone, in the Tremaine Churchyard, that he must have lived in Westcott for some considerable time as he was described as &#8220;John Ebbott of Westcott in this Parish&#8221;

Originally I thought that the two properties of Westcott and North Tregeare were the same, however they are not one and the same, The two properties are about 2 miles away from each other1 &#8220;North Tregeare&#8221; is in Tresmeer and Westcot is in Tremaine, Cornwall.

John Ebbott and Wilmot Baker married on 26 Jun 1775, in Tremaine, Cornwall2

John & Wilmot had only two children:-
1.Philip Upton Ebbott christened 7 Feb 1776, Tresmeer, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom
2.Elizabeth Ebbott christened 30 Jan 1778, Tresmeer, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.
A second christening was also recorded for Elizabeth Ebbott on the same day in Egloskerry (C022532) The two churches are less than three miles apart so the parents could have had Elizabeth baptised twice, however it's more likely that the same clergyman covered the two parishes [common even then] and then when recording the days proceedings inadvertantly had the single event written in both registers.

Eighteen years later John Baker dies in 1793 leaving his one of his several estates to his daughter Wilmot Ebbott (wife of John Ebbott).

The question now is how do I go about finding more about the Ebbott/Baker connection discovered via John Bakers Will with the Westcott estate.
Is anyone else researching these families or properties?

HI Richard,
Good to meet a fellow Ebbott cousin through which of Philip Upton Ebbot are you descended from? Did your Ebbott's settle eventually in USA or Australia?

Hi There,

Am really interested to have found your research. I too am a descendant of John Ebbott's our side are all living in Australia.

We recently went to Cornwall to retrace the journey that Percy Ebbott made many years ago. My Grandpa Rex Ebbott also did a great deal of research on the family history.
