Gwennap is close to Redruth where I have two marriages either (or neither) of which could be your Samuel
Samuel Richards married Mary Jenkins Redruth, 1837, Q3 9 243
Samuel Richards married Mary Morcom Redruth , 1838 Q4 9 304

As son Samuel was born 1838 I personally would choose the first as then he would have been born legitimately, the second marriage would have probably take place after he was born as it is in Q4 but I will leave it to you to decide

Thank you for your assistance. much appreciated,I am new to this research but Learning. The repetition of names and single names where there are so many Richards is confusing. However thank you I have another avenue to pursue. Kind regards.
