Thomas Sampson 1702-17?? & Ann James 17??-1744 & Christian Barnes 1710-1798
Married Ann on 8 Apr 1727 at Perranuthnoe, Cornwall
Married Christian on 8 Feb 1746 at St. Hilary, Cornwall. Residence at time of marriage: Thomas – Perranuthnoe and for Christian – Marazion.
Third son of John Sampson and Christian Morly
Baptised 5 Jul 1702 Perranuthnoe, Cornwall
Died: There are three Thomas Sampson burials with one in 1758, one in 1761 and the other in 1796.
Ann James (1st wife)
Parents unknown. Ann James was not baptised in Perranuthnoe so assumed moved to Perranuthnoe possibly from Breage. Further research required. The baptismal records of Perranuthnoe indicate that her last three children died on the day they were baptised.
Buried: 6 Nov 1744 Perranuthnoe, Cornwall
Christian Barnes (2nd wife)
Parents believed to be John Perry of Marazion and Patience Maddern of Penzance.
Baptised: 13 Dec 1713 St Hilary
Buried: 1 May 1798 Perranuthnoe, Cornwall
In 1695 St Hilary John Perry of Marazion marries Patience Maddern of Penzance. Their ninth child Christian Perry (bap. 1713) marries Robert Bannes in St Hilary in 1732. They have six children with the last son Robert being born in 1744. Did husband Robert die in the period 1744? If so then Christian Barnes/Bannes could have remarried to Thomas Sampson in 1745. This would also help to explain why Thomas & Christian only had three children. Christian would have be 38 when she had Miriam in 1751. One problem – no death record for Robert Barnes/Bannes found thus far to confirm his death. Also Christian is not identified as a widow on her marriage record to Thomas Sampson.
