I am not sure if anyone else her has come across this, but I thought it extremely relevant. A year or so ago a contact sent me this (I quote from his e-mail to me):

"I have seen the proceedings of the Court of the Exchequer that sat in Truro in April 1754 and that contradicts the 1715 theory. Giving evidence to the Court (and I quote) "Thomas Daniell of the Borough of Truro in the County of Cornwall gentleman aged 34... a witness sworn and examined deposeth as follows :........ this deponent saith that he has known the Borough of Truro for 20 years last past...... " I do not believe that he would have given the wrong age nor that the clerk to the court would have recorded it or his evidence incorrectly. Other witnesses clearly state that they were born in Truro.So this suggests that Thomas was born c1720 and not in Truro."

So - it seems we are looking not for Thomas Daniell, born 1715 in Truro, but Thomas Daniell, born c1720 somewhere OTHER than Truro. Does this ring any bells anyone?
