Apologies for previous blank email. All the rain here has soaked into my

I wanted to thank John, Bob, David and Pat for their replies. Always

Mary CARBINES or CARBIS born about 1795; christened 17 April 1795 [IDB/1016]
Penzance, Cornwall; the daughter of Peter CARBINES or CARBIS - Tin miner,
and Frances or Fanny MARTINS

church, Cornwall
I have on my marriage database two children Mary Ann MARTINS and James
Carbis MARTINS from the above marriage

all of the above is a part on my Family Index 03carbis, which is an
Australian connection
I trust that the above may be of some small assistance.
Kind regards, John
