Desperately seeking marriage of GEORGE KNOWLES to PHILIPPA COOMBE c.1809-22 possibly east Cornwall / west Devon (Plymouth?) area. George believed to have been Boatman in Preventive Services so may have been posted elsewhere along coast. Also, where was GEORGE KNOWLES (maybe born parish of Antony / Torpoint, Cornwall?) in 1841 & subsequent census', also PHILIPPA KNOWLES (born Sheviock, Cornwall) in '51 & subsequent census (was in Torpoint in '41 but George not there).
