I have just recieved my great grandfather, JOHN MAUNDER'S birth certificate 29 / 09 / 1839 which has given me the names of my great, great grandparents.
They are WILLIAM and MARY ANN MAUNDER nee DINNER of St. NEOT.
DINNER is a name that I haven't come across before.
Has anyone any knowledge or information on this name.

maunder - cornwall Im all ears. Looking for any connection between Maunders of cornwall and maunders from Honiton on Otter, Devon, England. Joseph David Maunder b 1799 Honiton on Otter, Devon, England Married a cornwall lass Elizabeth Downing Crocker. If you happen to run across any connection to Joseph and why he visiting cornwall to meet and marry a cornish gal would much appreciate it

I cannot help you very much with the Devon/Cornwall connection, but I do have this lass.
St. Stephen by Launceston
Elizabeth Downing CROCKER dau of Roger & Sarah, 22nd. April, 1798.


Yep that is my lady Probem is I have little on her other than her parents name. Dont suppose you have any siblings for her.

Do have a vague link to a Richard Crocker b1845 and Matilda Crocker b1833
listed as cousins living with Elizabeths son in 1851 census. Would like to find out exactly how they are connected.

The IGI has a marriage in St Neot between William Maunder & Mary Ann DINNES on 3 Jun 1837. (Possibly a mis-reading)

Here are John & Mary Ann in 1851
Dorothy Crago Head W 83 Pauper St Pinnock, Cornwall
Mary A Maunder Niece W 43 Dressmaker Liskeard, Cornwall
St Neot Village, St Neot, Cornwall
HO107/1902 ED 4b Folio 367 Page 19 Sched 64

William Marks,Head,M,48,,Farmer Of 60 Acres Emp 4 Labs,St Neot Cornwall
Catharine Marks,Wife,M,,49,,Blisland Cornwall
John Axworthy,Servnt,W,58,,Farm Servant,Blisland Cornwall
William Crago,Servnt,U,19,,Farm Servant,Menheniot Cornwall
John Maunder,Servnt,U,11,,Farm Servant,St Neot Cornwall
Jane Welsh,Servnt,U,,19,House Servant,St Neot Cornwall
Hilltown, St Neot, Cornwall
HO107/1902 ED 4a Folio 349 Page 20 Sched 65

This could well be William's death
Deaths Mar 1846 MAUNDER William Liskeard 9 85

Her is Dorothy Crago in 1841 with another possible Dinner relation
HO107/153 Book 14 ED 14 Folio 24 Page 11
Newhouse Cottage, St Neot, Cornwall
James Crago,45,,Tailor,In county
Dorothy Crago,,70,,In county
Richard Crago,15,,,In county
Angelina Crago,,13,,In county
Stephen Ough,20,,Carpenter,In county
Patherick Lobb,15,,Carpenter,In county
James Donner,60,,Inmate (Crossed Out),In county

As a long shot this could be the Maunders, unfortunately HO107/153 Book 14 is missing from A* so I've had to rely on the COCP transcription.

HO107/153 Book 14 ED 15 Folio 32 Page 4
Hobbs, St Neot, Cornwall
William Meade,26,,Ag Lab,In county
Mary Meade,,34,,In county
John Meade,2,,,In county

There is only one Dinner baptism in Liskeard for a James Every Dinner but the are several in St Pinnock, the neighbouring parish, (including the same James' children).
They include a Maryane Dinner daughter of John & Wilmot 20 Apr 1806. (CD of St Pinnock baptisms from Cornish Forefathers).

I also found this extracted marriage in the IGI
JOHN DINNER/WILMOT QUILLER 29 APR 1805 Saint Neot, Cornwall

If this is the right Mary Ann Maunder then her birth would be about 1806
Deaths Mar 1871 Maunder Mary Ann 65 Liskeard 5c 51
