Betsy Saunders, the youngest daughter of John and Elizabeth (Warne) Saunders born in 1801, was eventually married in St. Breock on the 5th April 1845. She was about 44 years old at the time. Her husband was Richard FRADD, aged 45 described as a ‘yeoman’ who had lost his first wife, Elizabeth (Betty), on the 9th May of the previous year. He had been left with five children – all sons – with ages ranging between 2 to 19. Three other children had died in infancy.

In 1851 the family were living in Bodieve, Egloshayle, Cornwall where Richard was a farmer.

Betsy died at Tredanick, a farm on the south east outskirts of Egloshayle, on the 28th December 1860, aged 59. She was buried in Egloshayle Cemetery.

The 1861 Census shows Richard as a widower and living at Tredanick, Egloshayle, where he was a farmer of 72 acres. Sometime after 1861 he appears to have married for a third time to another Elizabeth.

He died on the 25th April 1888, aged 88 and was buried in Egloshayle with his second wife, Betsy.
