My gggggg grandmother Clarendea or Clarenda Vivian (b: 20 Feb 1693 Camborne, Cornwall, England) married Matthew Bennatts; their daughter Elizabeth Bennatts married Matthew Cornelius; I won't bother to quote all the Family Search dates and places, since they are not only easily available to you, but also because I don't know anyone who has much confidence in them, since any valuable citations such as wills or family Bibles aren't mentioned.
Clarendea Vivian's father may be Francis (b: 18 Nov 1657 Camborne, Cornwall; the line may go back to Ralph Vivian (b: about 1174). About 1471, there's Michaell in Trelowarren, Cornwall. Michaell's mother is Florence Arundell (b: abt 1440 Trerise, Cornwall). Family Search says that Florence's father is Richard Arundell; a RootsWeb source "Couch, Trevanion, Ballamy & other Cornish families" (contact Sarah Melton <>) says that Florence's father is John Arundle and her mother is Catharine Coswarth; that source does not name places or dates, but the John Arundle + Catharine Cosworth marriage leads to many citations elsewhere.
Could you, would you, please confirm or deny whether the Florence listed with Richard as her father is the same Florence who is elsewhere listed with John Arundle and Catharine Coswarth as her parents? Is she MY Florence?
