MarriageEdit

Margaret married at aged 25 to Peter Trounson, son of Peter and Joan Trounson (nee Karn) from Ludgvan. The couple married in St Erth on 9th August 1787, and witnesses to the marriage were a Edward Rawlings and Joel James (possibly Margaret's father or brother). Peter was a sojourner to St Erth at the time of the marriage and was employed as a labourer.

The couple settled and had 9 known children. Although St Erth is recorded as the location for all the baptisms of the children, they may not have all been born there. Daughter Ann is known to have been born in St Hillary and baptised in St Erth.
