William and Ann Chapman

William 1760 is the son of Nicholas and Mary French and the grandson of William and Agnes Hobb. He was born in Treneglos. In 1790 in Treneglos, he marries Ann Chapman - the witnesses were Nicholas Uglow (who is William's father or brother) and Edward Chapman.

Under his father's will, he receives Rundell's tenement in Downhinney in Warbstow in 1810. By 1841, his widow Ann, now 70 and a shopkeeper is living in Warbstow Lane, Warbstow with daughter, Jennifer, a dressmaker. Also living there is grandaughter Ann Honey and Mary Heard, perhaps a relative of her niece, Thomasin Hird, daughter of Jenny Chapman.

son Nicholas 1791 born in Warbstow. He may have been the miller at Tuckingmill, Warbstow. He married Grace Uglow, the daughter of William and Jane Bray from Jacobstow and they live in Warbstow - Family 6a.
son John 1793 born in Warbstow. He joins the navy and is a rigger in HM service. He moves to the Plymouth area where he marries Mary Ann Harris who was born in 1794? in St. Mellion. She dies in 1864 in Stoke Damerel - Family 4.
daughter Mary 1795 born in Warbstow. She may be the Mary 1794 who marries John Honey in Warbstow in 1819
daughter Ann 1797 born in Warbstow.
daughter Catherine 1800 born in Warbstow. In 1819, she marries an Otterham farmer, William Kinsman. However in 1841, the family is living in Week St Mary and William is working as a mason. By that time they have 6 children - William 1821, Richard 1827, Henry 1827?, Ann 1831, John 1835, Catherine 1840. They are Bible Christians who emigrate to Ontario, ending up at Bowmanville, Durham West, Ontario where William dies in 1856. Catherine is alive at the time of the 1881 census in Canada, living with the Dayman family in Bowmanville.
daughter Jenopher/Jennifer 1803 born in Warbstow. In the 1841 (with her mother), 1851, 1861 and 1871 census she is a dressmaker in Warbstow.
daughter Agnes 1805 born in Warbstow. In 1829 she marries Roger Luxon in the village. Widowed by 1863, she married a second time, to William M/Wills of Canworthy Water. By 1871 she is a widow twice over and a grocer in the village. She lives with her widowed daughter, Agnes Wills, a dressmaker, and her two young children.

The above info came from It is an amazing site.

My great grandfather was John Robbins who emigrated to Canada from England in about 1870 or 71 with his wife Grace Uglow and their son John H. b.1869. They settled on Manitoulin Island. This Grace Uglow is the daughter of Nicholas and granddaugter of William Uglow and Ann Chapman.
John Jr. married Elma Jane Doan on Manitoulin Island.
The other children born in Canada were:
William R. b. 1875, d. 1924
Elizabeth J. b 1878, d. 1900. Married William Pretty in 1899
Evelena Alberta b. 1882, d.1898
Minnie Ann b. 1885, d. 1944 (this is my grandmother). She Married James Francis Chisholm in 1909.
I am going to try to trace the Robbins family in England.

Sudbury, Ont.
