Re: Richard Cubbon,Charlotte nee Gorry

Charlotte seems to be the daughter of James Gorry & Margaret Callister who married in Braddan on 29 April 1837 [IGI], both of whom were born c1813, The family appears in all censuses 1841-1901.

Charlotte 1854 & Richard 1840ish married in Patrick on 23 Sep 1875 [IGI]. I have not found them in the 1881 census but they and their children are listed in the 1891 & 1901 censuses.

Richard's birth year is calculated at 1840 in the 1891 census, and 1843 in the 1901 census, but the IGI closest births are to Patrick Cubbon/Ann Corris in 1838, and to John Cubbon/Margaret Quayle in 1839. None of these names were given to Richard & Charlotte's children.

Richard was a lead miner but in the 1901 census he is a postman & local preacher - maybe there's a lead there?
