Isaac Jewell was born in Crowan, Cornwall in 1796, to William and Jenifer Jewell (nee Bosanko). he was baptised three days later on 28th February, in the parish church at Crowan.

Little is known of Isaac's life other than the dates provided by church records.


Isaac married Sarah Harris at the parish church in Crowan on 1st June 1819. She too had been born and raised in Crowan.

The couple would have 9 known children together, but it is possible that only 7 made it into adulthood. All were christened in Crowan.


Isaac died at a young age, only 39. His youngest child was barely 6 months old at the time. Without a grave inscription or death certificate for that early period of time, it is difficult to determine what he died of at this stage. If he was a miner, mining accidents for the year 1835 near Crowan should be investigated.
