    Mother Katherine,   b. Est 1640,   d. Yes, date unknown 
    Married
    • Katherine is named as Timothy's 'now wife' in indenture date 1682, Timothy could have been married more than once, and so ** Katherine was not necessarily the mother of all of his children. ** This wording could be more in case Timothy should remarry at a later date rather than imply an earlier wife, but even if so with no marriage date it is still quite possible Timothy had his children with more than one wife.
    Children 5 children

    Married 30 Nov 1707  St. Mary’s Church, Berry Pomeroy, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • From PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 13 Nov 2014)
      "[November] 30. John Gotham and Jone Cornish both of Marldon were married by a certificate from the Curate there" - under heading 'Weddings Burials 1707'
      (other register entry to be added)

      Given that John was aged about 42 one or both of them may have been married before.
      A Jone ADAMS married a John CORNISH in Dartmouth in 1687, a Joane MILWARD married Joseph CORNISH in Chudleigh ... there were too many Jone CORNISHes to be sure which this one was without a thorough study into the CORNISH family in the Marldon area.
