Matthew (Mathias) Sampson

Buried: Unknown


Jane Steven (Steaven)

Daughter of John Steven (1736-1798) & Annis Pearse (17??-1???)

Baptised: 25 Mar 1647 Breage, Cornwall

Buried: 6 Feb 1670 Perranuthnoe, Cornwall


Jane died at around the age of 23. This was less than two years into the marriage. Due to the timing it is possible that Jane died after giving  birth to their daughter Miriam. According to the Parish records for the family this is the first time the name of Miriam is used. The following generation kept reusing the name Miriam in her honour. At this point it is not known what happened to Matthew. He does not appear again in the parish marriage and burial records for Cornwall.
