Default James Guillermo Bennett, emigrated

I'm trying to trace this man's parents:

BENNETT, JAMES GUILLERMO NOBLE
GRO Reference: 1887 S Quarter in REDRUTH Volume 05C Page 202

Day Month 24-Apr
Year 1889
Parish Circuit Or Chapel Gwennap
Forename James Guillermo
Surname BENNETT
Sex son
Age Or Date Of Birth
Father Forename William
Mother Forename Elizabeth
Residence Ting Tang
Parish
Status Or Occupation Coach Painter
Where Baptised
Notes 3/7/87, M, Mrs Richards
Transcriber Notes
Transcriber Coral Jennings


The parents' marriage was in 1886.
23 Oct 1886 • Redruth, Cornwall, England
Date from newspaper announcement
The bride was given as Bessie Noble, not Elizabeth.
William Henry was from St Austell.

I can't find them on the 1891 Census - had they already emigrated?
No further births have yet been found for the couple.

And sorry to say the 1890 US census has not survived, so we can't look for them on that.

The parents and James are all in New York on the 1910 Federal census. James apparently married Florence in Manhattan. Haven't look any farther. Sent you a PM.

EDIT:
Ancestry had the father down as William H Bernatt. I've made the correction.

Thanks to you both, Kate and Janet.

I'm a DNA match to a descendant of this family so I need to delve back into Cornish records to see the connection. I have Bennetts in my tree, but from the 18th Century.
