Family of John Roo and Ulalia Blande of Werrington, Cornwall, England

The research relating to the family of John Roo and Ulalia Blande of Werrington, Cornwall, England, whose son Degory Rowe (died 1668) paid the rates on Tuckingmill, situated on the outskirts of Camborne from at least 1650, was conducted primarily by Mrs. Lesley J. Morton (1929-1912) of East Malvern, Victoria, Australia, Mrs. Jeannette C. Merritt of Camborne, Cornwall, and Walter Meyer zu Erpen of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Where research contributed by other individuals has been confirmed, that research is acknowledged in the source citations. Every effort has been made to confirm the relationships within the family tree presented here. Please see the linked “Notes” for information sources, explanation of data discrepancies, assumptions made, and potential connections that cannot be proven. To obtain the description of any source (e.g., CER1234, CHT1234, COR1234, etc.), send your request via email to: Lesley, Jeannette and Walter are family historians with many years’ experience researching in sources relevant to Cornish genealogy; Jeannette and Walter have been collaborating on this family history project since 1984, and Lesley since 1988. Lesley was made a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd in 1993 for her contributions to the preservation of Cornish heritage and culture. It was Lesley who discovered Degory Rowe in Werrington and obtained the inventory of his property compiled in 1668 after his death, which showed he had property in Camborne. Third cousins, once removed, Jeannette and Walter descend from Phillip Rowe (1785-1846) and Mary Gribbell (1790-1861). Sixth cousin to Jeannette and sixth cousin once removed to Walter, Lesley is descended from James Rowe (1737- ) and Philippa Kemp (1743-1813), and we are all descended from Thomas Rowe (ca. 1680s-1754) and Margaret Bayley (ca. 1685-1752). This Rowe family tree was initially compiled to determine whether theRowe family from which Lesley, Jeannette, and Walter descend might be connected. As of August 2017, no link with John Roo and Ulalia Blande has been established. Given a lack of early records and/or gaps in existing records, it is doubtfulthat further progress regarding the early generations of the Rowe family in Camborne and area will be possible. In the Name Index, these ABBREVIATIONS are used: b = born; r = christened; m = married; d = died; u = buried
