Note on Child 1: Richard George HILL

What happened? WC Hill was baptised in Jan 1838. By June 1841 the three younger children were alone in Falmouth workhouse. I suggest that the parents and oldest son died c1838-1841, perhaps making them chargeable to Mylor - the father's birth parish. There was a severe smallpox epidemic which hit the south-west very hard 1837-1840. [http://kdfhs.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1:epidemics-timeline&catid=43&Itemid=30]
