    This could be her in 1871,servant.
    Elizabeth Bamfield
    Piece: RG10/2333 Place: St Ives -Cornwall Enumeration District: 1
    Civil Parish: St. Ives Ecclesiastical Parish: Halsetown
    Folio: 11 Page: 17 Schedule: 87
    Address: Halse Town.
    I think that she was born in Camborne because her father David was born there.
    The surnaame has been Banfield/Bamfield.

    I did find a James BANFIELD born c1843 in England who emigrated to Canada arriving in Ontario in 1871 on the US & Canada Passenger & Immigration List Index but according to the 1871 census of Haldimand, Ontario he is shown as a Wagonmaker? This is only a transcription of the census and I cannot find this James BANFIELD in any other Canadian census records but there does seem to be a family of BANFIELDs in the 1841 census of Haldimand, the head of this family being a John BANFIELD, aged 39, born in England. Wife Jane and 7 children all born in Canada. John & family are still in Haldimand in the 1861 census.

    Just spotted a James BANFIELD aged 40, born England, a Dry Goods ?, living in Halifax, Nova Scotia in the 1881 census together with wife Philis (sic), aged 34, born England and children James & Edward both born Nova Scotia.

    However, whether these James BANFIELDs are connected to yours I do not know as I am having a distinct lack of success in finding any marriages, deaths, etc.

    Impatience can be a virtue - honestly!

    Probably will never know what happened to him.
    James's mother Elizabeth had brothers David bap 1807 and John bapt 1809 both bapt Camborne,whom I don't know anything about. Perhaps their offspring emigrated.

    That is an interesting site.
    I haven't found my Banfield's but my friend will be pleased when she sees this site because I have just found some surnames from her family.
    I will email the link to her.
