BAWDEN - Stephen in 1851 Census and 1861 Census

Journal by Bawden4

This Stephen was born/christened 19 May 1791, according to the 1851 census in Kenwyn and according to the 1861 census in Gwennap, Cornwall. Gwennap seems to be the more prevalent reference.

He married on 17 Aug 1809 in Redruth, Elizabeth JELBERT nee GILBERT - an old transcriber error. GILBERT website and family groups include both names.

Elizabeth was born/christened 18 June 1791 in Redruth, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth REYNOLDS GILBERT. Richard was born/christened in Illogan, Cornwall, 24 Oct 1763 and Elizabeth REYNOLDS born/christened 26 Dec 1765 in Redruth.

Stephen was a blacksmith and this BAWDEN family had 8 children. Stephen spent his later years, the family became victuallers at the Redruth Inn - no longer exists - on Fore St. in Redruth. A victualler holds the supply and liquor "license", but this family ran the Inn.

After wife Elizabeth died, Stephen went to spend his last years with daughter and son-in-law Elizabeth BAWDEN who was his executrix, and Michael MACCOOEY/MCCOVEY.

Stephen died with dtr Elizabeth and Michael's family in Redruth on 8 June 1861.

Stephen and wife Elizabeth are buried in St. Euny churchyard in Redruth, Cornwall, UK. I have a pending Find-a-Grave request to photograph their markers.
