John Courtenay of Boconnoc (John of Bottreaux, Botreaux)

electricbluestar@hotmail.co.uk
ancestor=John Courtenay of Boconnoc
comments=I am working on a possible theory that John Courtenay of Boconnoc (John of Bottreaux, Botreaux) may have been John Wilton from Lanreath
All dates are circa due to lack of records but:
John Wilton born 1450, married 1479 Died 1504, married to Joan,
John Courtenay, born 1452, married 1481, died 1509 married to Johane
Lanreath and Boconnoc are only a few miles apart and the Bottreaux family had links to Lanreath. The Courtenays married into the Wilton family. John Wilton, b 1607 married Mary Burell, Margaret Trethurffe's Gr Grandaughter. Elinor (Eleanor) Wilton married William Paynter, whose Mother was Alice Courtenay. William Wilton, John's Gr Grandson married a D'Auney. The early Wilton's paid taxes. The slightly rare names Lawrence & Nicholas occur in both families. John Courtenay's siblings were born in Boconnoc (Florence, Isabelle, Elizabeth & Matilda. I am interested in anything that can be added or discounted by anyone, however small.

16 May 2016 - update:
Also, I have William Courtenay born 1695 married to Grace Bice. 
Have you got any information regarding their ancestors, possible back to Edward Courtenay and Elizabeth Gorge? I have suggestions but not proof?

comments=Well, my 4th great grandmother was Elizabeth Sarah Courtenay Harris born in St. Giles, Oxfordshire. Her father was Edward Harris and many sources say that her mother is Louisa Augusta Courtenay but it can't be possible because it is speculation and she was married to Sir ? (can't remember) but I think Edward Harris's mother was a Courtenay, it is most likely.

CORRECTION: Actually Elizabeth Sarah Courtenay Harris was born in Exmouth, Devon, England in 1817. She married Daniel Francis Close (an independent minister) and I know she is a descendant of the Courtenay families. I just don't know how.

I am trying to compile the Courtney family tree for my father for Christmas. I am about to start by getting birth and marriage certificates in Dublin for my father and his parents.
I already know my father's grandfather is a Robert Edward Courtney who was born around 1872, and it is believed he was born in Omagh in Ireland. But he emigrated to Canada and is believed to have died in Moose Jaw (Saskatchewan). I would like to know if anyone has any information about Robert Edward or if anyone has any suggestions as to how to find this out?
It would be much appreciated!
Many thanks,

He was a relative to my ancestress Lavinia Sally Anne DUBOURDIEU in Stade, Hannover, Germany. She mentioned him in her last will and testament, and he was obviously very close to her. But I still don't know just how they were related. He might have been her grandson or even great-grandson ...
She was Lavinia Sally Anne HARFFY, born most probably in Canada in 1772 (daughter of Dr. William HARFFY).
Married in 1789 William GRAHAM (GRAHAM OF NETHERBY), captain in 65th regt of Foot, brother of Sir James GRAHAM, 1. baronet of Netherby. They lived in Marylebone. William GRAHAM died in 1792, leaving a son, Robert Charles GRAHAM. (Daughter Lavinia Frances must have died in infancy.) Robert Charles had a daughter Caroline Agnes GRAHAM, born 1813.
Lavinia returned to Canada (about 1794/96) and married Robert COOPER, Lieutenant Royal Engineers, who died Jan. 1799 in Quebec.
Daughter: Catherine Johanna Louisa COOPER, bapt. Arthuret, Cumberland, Sep 1799, m. in 1828 to the Hannoverian officer George Franz VON HASSELL.
In 1811 she married again (St. Anne, Soho, London): Francis DUBOURDIEU, of an Irish Huguenot family, Hanoverian Engineers, with whom she went to Hannover. She died in Oerel, Hannover, in 1853.
Any help will be much appreciated.

I have traced my ancestors back to the above named Thomas Courtney who was born in Chittlehampton in Devon circa 1826. I know he died on the above date. I am having problems finding his records prior to 1851 census and would be interested to know if he is connected to your family society. If so I would like to join the society and find more family connections further back. Are you able to advise me if he is connected and/or if you have records that I could access to ?
I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
Kind regards

comments=My interest is in Robert Courtney, b. Abt 1752 in England; died 16 March 1840 in Ireland. Married Anna Wilson, she was born bet 1730-1767 in Scotland and died in Ireland.
Robert Courtney allegedly was sent by the King with a company of soliders (he was a Captain) to Ireland in 1785 to protect Protestants in Ireland. He met Anna there whose brother Dr Christopher Wilson was a Doctor in the same company as Robert. They married and remained in Ireland, they had five sons and two daughters. At least 2 sons went to America and 2 sons of another son came out to Australia.
Is this Robert related to the Courtenay family?
Is there anymore information regarding this Robert either in England or Ireland?
