BAWDEN - Stephen is a grand old name!
Stephen BAWDEN married Lucretia MATTHEW(S) / MATHEW on 14 October 1754 in Perranuthnoe, Cornwall. It was witnessed by James MATTHEWS, her father. She was born 5 Aug 1732 (no place) to James and Miriam (no maiden) MATTHEWS.
They had Stephen ch 19 May 1755, Elizabeth ch 5 Nov 1756 - d 1768, Jane ch 16 Apr 1759, Miriam ch 24 May 1761, Anne ch 12 June 1763, William ch 1 Mar 1767, Elizabeth ch 8 Jan 1769, Mary ch 9 Jun 1771 all in Perranuthnoe, Cornwall, UK.
My tree skips a generation - 1755 Stephen. I have no info on him. The next is 1812 Stephen.
This is the farthest my Bawden tree goes. If anyone can fill in blanks, I'd love to know.
