Default Mary Bryant nee Williams

Name: Mary Bryant nee Williams (also spelt Brian, Bryan)
Date and place of birth: C1732/3, possibly Germoe, Cornwall (at Marriage)
Names of parents: Thomas Williams & Mary ? not proven
Date and place of baptism: 1/1/1732/3 Breage not proven
Marriage: 13 September 1755 to John Bryant, blacksmith of Gwinear
Occupation: Unknown
Addresses where they lived: Cornwall - Germoe (at Marriage) 1755; Children’s Baptisms Camborne 1756 to 1765; St Hilary 1767; Germoe 1769 (Birth & Death of child); St. Hilary 1770 to 1825 (Lower Downs)
Date, place and cause of death: August, 1825 Lower Downs, St. Hilary aged 91
Date and place of burial: 24 August 1825, St. Hilary
Details of will: Unknown
Memorial inscription: Unknown
Note: Other researchers and I had not been able to find a marriage at St. Hilary for John and Mary for decades - all we had were the baptisms of the children at St. Hilary. I discounted the marriage at Germoe, because of the gap between a 1755 Marriage and what I thought was the first birth in 1767. Then on a Cornwall site, Cornish Terrier, found the baptisms at Camborne. What we think them links them together, is that a Catherine is baptised in Camborne in 1758, and a Catharine dies in St. Hilary 30/1/1780 aged 21 years, then another Catherine is baptised St. Hilary 7/5/1780, (dies 11/4/1781 aged 1). A Joseph is born & died Germoe 1769, then a Joseph born 1770 St. Hilary. So it appears the family has the tradition of naming the next child after a previous child who has died. It also appears that there are links between Camborne, Germoe and St. Hilary ????
Children: Born Camborne: Richard 1756, Catherine 1758-1780, William 1761, Mary 1765; Born St. Hilary: Daniel 1767; Born and Died Germoe: Joseph 1769-1769; Born St. Hilary: Joseph 1770, Jane 1773, Alexander 1776, Catherine 1780-1781.

Thanks Shona. I think I found three baptisms around the date and the area for a Mary Williams unfortunately. It would be nice to find a will to verify, but somehow don't think that likely.

Would it be possible to search forward to see if any of the potential Mary Williams can be eliminated?

Thanks Shona. Just saw your post.
In the right time frame, a Mary Williams at Sithney and a Mary Williams at St. Hilary, married different men, so the baptism at Breage is the most likely.
