On Family Search.org I located the marriage detail (in Cornwall) of this couple. These would be my gx4 grandparents. Cannot find any reference to the female surname on trees or GR. An alternative spelling could be Froethy. Has anyone come across this surname? I am trying to go back as far as poss on the Saunders line, before then the family were in Bristol or Gloucestershire.

Very grateful for any input, thanks
Kathryn

Freathy men obviously fell for Nankivel girls!

I do think the Boconnoc baptism is quite feasible, as its only about 6 miles from Lanlivery.
