The Hampton Family

The Hamptons are a branch of the Pellow family which I descend from, mainly from the parishes of St. Erth and Uny Lelant, Cornwall.

They had the following children:

James (b. 1727)

Amy (b. 1729)

Robert (b. 1732)

Grace (b. 1737)

James was killed in a mining accident at Wheal Fortune, and buried on 9th March 1737. His widow, Amy, outlived him by 47 years.

7. James Hampton was baptised on 23rd July 1727 at St. Erth. He married a widow called Elizabeth Blight (formerly Vivian) on 19th February 1749.

They had the following children:

8. James Hampton was baptised on 24th August 1752 at St. Erth. His first wife was Clarinda Tredinnack, whom he married on 2nd November 1777 at St. Erth. James was listed as a tinner.

James and Clarinda had two daughters:

Elizabeth (b. 1779)

Clarinda (named on 16th Feb 1781, died on 23rd Feb along with her mother)

Both Clarindas (mother and daughter) were buried on 23rd February 1781. It looks as though Clarinda died of a childbirth-related illness. James remarried to Honour King at St. Hilary on 24th December 1783.

James and Honour had the following children:

James (1784-1872), aged 87.

John (b. 1785)

Ann *twin (1790-1813), aged 23. *unmarried - had an illegitimate son.

Robert *twin (b. 1790)

James' second wife Honour also died young, on 4th April 1798 at St. Erth. James himself died an old man, on 30th October 1833, aged 81. He was also buried at St. Erth.

9. James Hampton was baptised on 31st October 1784 at St. Erth. He married Grace Whitford at Phillack on 6th October 1805 and had the following children:

James (b. 1807)

Elizabeth (b. 1809)

Robert (b. 1811)

Thomas (b. 1814)

John (b. 1817)

William (b. 1820)

Richard (b. 1823)

Immanuel (1825-1911), aged 86.

Nanny (b. 1828)

His first wife Grace (née Whitford) died on 23rd March 1834, aged 49. James then remarried to another Grace, this time Grace Bartel (a widow) on 2nd September 1838. It is this Grace that appears on the census records, not to be mistaken with the first Grace. Grace had been married to James Bartle in 1809, her maiden name was Trevean. On the 1861 census, James and Grace (aged 77 and 74) were living at Boddiverrant, St. Erth.

The 1871 census shows James as a widower (for a second time) as follows:

Name Position Age Status Occupation Born

James Hampton Head 66 M Farmer 24 acres Phillack

Prudence Hampton Wife 67 M St. Hilary

James Hampton Father 87 W Was farmer St. Erth.

As you can see, James was living with his eldest son in the parish of Breage. James died at Breage on 12th January 1872. His wife Grace had died on 21st March 1866 (aged 79) at Relubbas, St. Erth.

10. Elizabeth Hampton was baptised on 12th February 1809 at Phillack. She married Benjamin Pellow on 28th July 1832 at Phillack. Benjamin was baptised on 4th January 1807 at St. Erth and died on 21st August 1847, aged 40. They had the following children, many of which died in infancy:

John (1833-1912), aged 80.

Grace (b. 1834) *unmarried - had an illegitimate daughter.

Benjamin (1836-1902), aged 66.

James (b/d 1837)

Elizabeth (b/d 1839)

Elizabeth (b. 1840)

Nanny (1842)

James (b/d 1845)

Richard (b/d 1847)

Elizabeth was listed on the 1861 census living with her daughter Elizabeth and her young family. However, I cannot find her on the 1871 census, therefore I believe she must have died between these years, which means that her father, James Hampton, outlived her (he died in 1872-see above).

11. John Pellow was baptised on 26th May 1833 at St. Erth. He married Ellen Hayes on 19th February 1860 at St. Erth, although they already had two illegitimate children. John was listed as a labourer on the marriage record. They had the following children:

Elizabeth (surname Hayes) (b. 1855)

John (surname Hayes) (b. 1857)

Annie Hampton (b. 1860)

Mary Ellen (1862-1919), aged 57.

Amelia Hayes (1863-1933), aged 70.

Bessie Trevaskis (b. 1866)

John Glasson (1867-1939), aged 71.

Caroline Jane (1869-1962), aged 92.

Sarah Louise (1871-1959), aged 87.

Benjamin James (1873-1942), aged 69.

James Henry (b. 1876)

William (b. 1878)

John's wife Ellen died at St. Erth on 3rd June 1908, aged 72. John died on 3rd February 1912, aged 80. Both are buried at St. Erth.

12. Benjamin James Pellow was born on 27th March 1873 at St. Erth. He married Katie Tonkin on 23rd September 1900. They had the following children:

James Colin (1902-1970), aged 67.

Evelyn (1904-1928), aged 24.

Kathleen Hazel (1905-1991), aged 86.

Phyllis Dorothy (1908-1999), aged 91.

Benjamin suffered a fall in 1908 when his horse had an accident on the Hayle causeway. This damage led to manic depression and Benjamin was confined to Bodmin Mental Hospital, and apparently didn't want his daughters or grandchildren to visit him there. Dorothy once told me she first met her father when she was 17. Benjamin's wife Katie passed away on 29th April 1938, aged 63. Ben lived for a few more years, dying on 14th November 1942, aged 69. Katie is buried with her parents Nicholas (1843-1932) and Caroline (1840-94) at Phillack. Benjamin is buried with his sister Sarah Louise at St. Erth.

13. James Colin Pellow was born on 19th August 1902 at St. Erth. His father Benjamin was diagnosed with manic depression when Colin was 6 years old. He used to visit his father at Bodmin Mental Hospital, although his sisters and children were not allowed to visit. He married Gwendoline Bennett on 26th December 1928 and had the following children:

James Bertie (Bert) (b. 1932)

Gwendoline June (b. 1934)

Marlene Bennett (b. 1935)

Colin went off to the USA to work for Ford, the car company. However, after the 1929 Wallstreet Crash, Gwen had to send him money in order for him to return to Cornwall. Colin developed a bone cancer and died on 9th February 1970, aged 67. Gwen died in 1990, aged 88.

14. Marlene Bennett Pellow was born at Hayle on 20th June 1935. Apparently, when she was born, her cousin Peggy (daughter of Evelyn) was staying with Colin and Gwen. Marlene's birth came as a shock to 12 year old Peggy as she had no idea that Gwen was expecting.

Marlene married John Romilly Cory on 10th November 1956 and had the following children:

Nicholas John (b. 1958)

Timothy Ian (b. 1960)

Soon after they married, Marlene and John moved up to London, where Nick was born in 1958. However, John caught TB in 1959 and, after a long stay in hospital, it was suggested that the family move back down to Cornwall, where the air was cleaner. They returned to Cornwall, where Tim was born in 1960. The family moved back up to London in 1974. During the late 1970s, they were living in The Barbican, which they eventually sold in 1993, after living in Cambridge from 1988-92, whilst renting the Barbican appartment out. After finally moving out of the Barbican in August 1993, they moved to Warwick where Marlene still lives. John died on 1st October 2002 when he was 69.

15. Timothy Ian Cory was born at Redruth on 30th May 1960. He lived in Cornwall until he was 14, when the family moved up to London. He married Angela Bates on 26th October 1985 and had the following children:
