    Notes 

    • Catherine Cowling was from the Parish near Perran. She was the youngest of four
      sisters who in her turn managed a shop in a house on an estate at Parkhoon that
      probably belonged to her mother, Mary Pearse, native of that parish. In this
      shop Catherine became aquainted with William Briant who lived in the adjoining
      parish of Luxulyan and whose two first cousins, James and Samuel Lawry, had
      married her two sisters. Her father, William Cowling, was a most upright and
      conscientious churchman; regarding the Sabbath with more scrupulous rigidity
      than was considered by most of his neighbours as at all necessary; having every
      particle of fuel, for instance, ready chopped and prepared the day before, and
      water brought into the house. The most decided honesty was enforced among his
      children and servants, even to the taking of an apple from the orchard without
      permission. Her mother also seems to have been of a very worthy character. Her
      education had been superior to her day. Her father lived in the parsonage at
      Roach, and she shared the tuition of the parson's only daughter. She wisely
      restraining her children from promisuous intercourse with those less carefully
      trained. To go outside their front gate without leave was a capital offence in
      her little ones. Catherine Cowling, in addition to such education as her
      sisters enjoyed, for a considerable time attended a superior school in the town
      of Truro, one reason for this priviledge being, that she might be company for
      her brother, Edward Cowling, the junior brother of the family, who was thought
      rather too young to go so far alone; and they made one pony serve for the
      accomadation of both. It might be attributed to this town training, that she
      became much more gay, and enamoured of dress than her sisters. This was the
      fact, that she became very gay, notwithstanding her father's strict notions of
      plain and homely apparel; and to worldly amusements, especially dancing, she
      was much addicted. Ctherine Cowling finally moved to America with her husband,
      William O'Bryan and is buried with him in the Brooklyn Cemetery, New York.
