Fourth Generation
4. Thomas Brown SKINNER

1841 & 1851 Censuses: This family was recorded in 1851 Census for Cornwall, Parish of Endellion, all living at Pt Isaac.

He married Hephzibah LANGMAN, daughter of William LANGMAN & Elizabeth COOK. She was born 26 Feb 1801 in Minster or Lesnewth, Cornwall. Died 8 Dec 1866 in Port Isaac. Ancestors of the Langmans include the Yeos. I have a family tree of this line going back to the 1500's. See also Jean Ashfield's Yeo Family Tree. Jean and I believe we have a common Yeo ancestor in the 1500's.

The administration of Hephzibah's 1867 will refers to a male "next of kin now residing at Paris in the Province of Canada West". (i.e. Paris south-west of Toronto, Ontario). We are very keen to locate that next of kin and his descendants.

She was born 1829-1837 in Burnley, Lancashire.  I have not been able to trace her brothers Henry and William who came to Australia in 1859 and 1860 and might have then moved on to California.

They had the following children born in Australia:

i. Hephzibah J SKINNER
ii. Lucy Ann SKINNER

NOTE: Possibly the last of our Skinners in Port Isaac lived at Archer Farm and married a Peter Lakeman.
