Trying to go further back with my lot. John Carter had a son named Charles and Charles married Hannah Floyd. There are posts abot them on the Cornwall forum. Charles was baptised 17 Sep 1786 at Camborne and John Carter and Beaten is on the transcript. I left it that for a long time but decided to go back futher. I have never heard of the name Beaten as a Christian name before. Cornwallopc has baptisms for children of John and Beaton/Beaten ranging from 1774 to 1786 finishing with Charles in 1876, I counted 13 children and I presume they belong to the same people. There is a marriage between John and Beaten//Beaton Donithorne on 28 July 1771, I can't find a baptism for Beaten/Beaton Donithorne but there is one on Cornwallopc for Peaton Donithorne daughter 26 February 1748 father Cyprian. Anybody think that this could be her and a misprint? John Carter will be a headache.
