Exploring the Hender Families of St. Cleer

Compiled and Explored by Don R. Hender


    This is an exercise in compiling such raw information as found upon the St. Cleer parish records, the Cornwall Census records, such Hender family wills as indicated and other resources as found upon the internet. This is an ongoing effort, so do not expect perfection. Take it as it is for what it is. Of the Hender family births recorded on the parish records of St. Cleer, these pedigree determination pages have placed all but two Hender legitimate births into a pedigree position of family ties. The two not determines is the first, William Hender son of a John and Grace Hender christened 23 August 1711. That 'ancient' William Hender and his parentage has no found relationship with the rest of the Hender listings other than perhaps a beginning place to look to for parents and perhaps brother to Samual Hender. The other one not determined is Thomas Hender the son of John and Jane Hender christened 1 October 1809. John and Jane's marriage is not in the St. Cleer record and no other family appears and thus not enough inforation is apparent to place just where they fit. Perhaps someone knows. My own developed database has him entered but without any further information than this besides the LDS dates per the extraction program. There are a certain number of 'base' born children, 4 girls and 2 boys. One boy died an infant and the other I have placed with a family. The four girls I have not so knowingly placed.

Note: Samuel Hender and wife Catherine appear on the 1841 census with son Samuel and daughter Elizabeth.

Also Attached to Samuel Hender III Will Are These Pedigrees

Since Samuel Hender III names in his Will just his four daughters there was a question as to Hender descendants from him.

[^^ Samuel Hender, son of Samuel Hender and Catherine Henwood died 6 June 1867 at St Cleer and

The persons whose pedigree and census record names, above and below, are in yellow are those who appear in the above will of 'Grandpa' Samuel Hender (III/Jr). As accurately as possible, they are placed in the pedigree above and by doing so greater details of this family unit are determined. It is Catherine Hender who marries the named son-in-law, Richard Pearce. Catherine first had a son named 'Samuel Hender Pearce', and later, Catherine delivers her and Richard's daughter 'Mary Hender Pearce'. Shortly, in about 5 months of that delivery Cahterine dies and is buried on 13 April 1832 at the age of 31. So does her toddler, Samuel Hender Pearce, at age 1yr, that is a year and some number of months. The baby, 'Mary Hender Pearce' does survive and is living with her 83 year old grandpa, Samuel Hender on the 1851 Census as his Housekeeper. Later in that same year, 1851, Mary Hender Pearce will mary John Beaglehole and she is so written into her grandfather's will as 'Mary Hender Pearce Beaglehole', the surviving daughter of Richard Pearce who is also named in Samuel Hender's will. That is her story and how it is that we can know that Richard Pearce, the son-in-law, had married Catherine Hender, the ill fated daughter of Samuel Hender and Catherine Henwood.

Next is the story of grand daughter Catherine Mary Hender Dony which is much shorter and easier to follow. She is the daughter of Samuel's and Catherine's daughter Elizabeth Hender, who married Thomas Doney on 25 June 1844 and that's why and how Thomas Dony is named as son-in-law, as is his daughter Catherine Mary Hender Dony, in grandpa Samuel Hender's will. Note below that she is also at the home of grandpa Samuel Hender on the 1851 Census listed below.

That just leaves grandpa's other two grand daughters named in the will. The two daughters of his ONLY SON Samuel Hender. Yes, these two grand daughters are both the daughter of Samuel Hender's only son, Samuel Hender. Yet they are born of two separate mothers. In 1846 Samuel Hender (IV) marries Mary Lander. Mary Lander, wife of Samuel Hender (IV) has a daughter in 1848 named Mary Lander Hender. And then Mary Lander the mother dies in 1848, the same year of 1848 and very possibly in some conjuction with that birth. By the time of the 1851 census Mary (Lander) Hender age 2 is living with her father Samuel Hender and his new wife Catherine, as part of the 1851 census family group just down or up the street from grandpa Samuel Hender where he is living with his other two grand daughters. On the 13th of April 1852, Samuel Hender (IV) and his new wife Catherine have a baby girl they name Catherine Jane Hender. She is the fourth grand daughter named in grandpa Samuel Hender's will. Four grand daughters by four mothers and three husbands as Samuel Hender's only son, Samuel Hender, fathers two of them but by separate wives. It certainly is the cement of such curious real life family facts which the combination of Census, Will and Parish Register comes together in fastening this family group and their ties solidly together.

William Hender - Shoemaker of Menheniot & St Cleer

This William Hender is stated to be a Shoemaker of Menheniot, which often follows that he was born there, though Menheniot is 'nigh unto St Cleer'--thus his parentage, despite the 'suggested christening dates', is for the most part undeterminable presently by me. Yet an analysis of the burial records of St Cleer would seem to eliminate the 1790 Christened William Hender++ as a William Hender was buried 11 April 1865 at age 74 indicating him to be the 1790 William Hender and therefore he could not be Elizabeth's husband as she was a 'widow' on the 1841 Census. The other burial for a William Hender+ was 15 August 1838 at age 61 and this would qualify him on both counts of the 1777 Christening date and being dead just on time to make wife Elizabeth a widow in 1841; not to mention that this so buried Willaim Hender was a resident of Church Town which matches with 'Church Villiage' of the 1841 Census and the other William Hender buried later at age 74 was of Tremar, which is not Church Town (See map).   Therefore this would make this William Hender the son of Samuel Hender and Jane Stantan barring another William Hender of Menheniot who may also qualify.
