The outline below traces the descent of Julia Rosewarne (nee Mann) from the Mann
family of the parishes of Sancreed, Paul, St Buryan and Morvah in Cornwall. The earliest record of the family
is the marriage of John Mann and Jane Taylor which is recorded in the parish register for the parish of Sancreed
on 28 December 1658. Although I have found no earlier records for the Mann family, the family of John's wife,
Jane Taylor, can be traced back two further generations to Robert Taylor who was married in the parish of Sancreed
The children of John and Jane Mann were baptised in the parishes of Sancreed and Paul. At the time of his death in 1685 John had estates at Boscawen-noon in St Buryan and Helwidden in Paul. John Mann, a son of John and Jane, moved his family to Morvah in about 1715.
In the early 1800s another John Mann, the father of Julia, and great-great-grandson of the orginal John and Jane, returned to Paul and settled with his family at Castallack Farm. Julia, the ninth child in a family of 13, was born there in 1817. By 1841 the family had moved to Tregadgwith Farm in the neighbouring parish of St Buryan, and members of the family can be found buried in the St Buryan churchyard.
Robert Taylor (15??-1638) = Agnes (15??-1651)
1. Daughter of William Baragwanath and Prudence Uren (married 1728 at Towednack, Cornwall). Further information on the history of the Baragwanath family can be found in Kathy Weigel's Cornish Genealogy Database.
2. Daughter of James Oliver and Jane Hosken (married 1771 at Madron, Cornwall)
The above details are derived from the parish registers of the parishes of Sancreed,
Paul, Morvah and Madron, and from probate records held at the Cornwall County Record Office.
