VITTLE in Cornwall and Wales

Journal by jonalex

Does anyone have any connections with the surname VITTLE, from Wales and/or Cornwall?
My3xG.grandfather was Richard VITTLE, b.Marloes, Pembrokeshire c1790. He was a Boatman in the Preventive Boat Service and later a Coastguard and a Customs Officer and as such, frequently moved address in the South West.He married Margaret Harris who was b 1796 on St Michaels Mount in Cornwall.

They lived in Sennen and had a son John VITTLE who was christened 29.11.1818 and a daughter, Margaret Harris VITTLE, christened 27.08.1820. John also became a Coastgoard, serving in various parts of Cornwall before retiring inPerranporth.

Richard and Margaretare known to have been in Sennen in 1817 until after 1820, and eventually moved to Polkerris and Tywardreath, where daughter Margaret Harris VITTLE married a Richard Hankcock, another Coastguard, on 07.12.1843.

They moved to Imble Street in Pembroke Dock in Wales where they were joined By Richard and Margaret when Richard retired. They lived next door to each other).

The more recent history can be tracked on Census forms (although sometimes VITTLE has been transcribed as VETTle, and HANKCOCK as HANKOCK or HANCOCK), and with the help of various BMD certs that I have. However, I am unable to find anything concrete before the births of Richard in Marloes and Margaret in St, Michaels Mount. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Allycat, you're a star!!

You can see from my original journal that I know a fair bit about the Vittle family (including some of the info you have given me, but the links you have given are great.
I'd missed the CWGC site and the Linkpendium
site is a new one to me.
Thanks again for the help.
