Shared note

It is probable he was born in Penzance, although that is not certain. He moved to Bodmin after the birth of his eldest son, Joseph Edyvean Commins, in 1804. He was a solicitor and after taking a partner the firm became known as Commins & Goode. The house at Bodmin was the house owned by his deceased father-in-law, and in which his wife grew up. It seems he had five sisters for whom he became the sole supporter when his parents died. He met his wife-to-be in Bodmin when he was there doing his articles.

He "was an honest lawyer; he never grew rich but wasted his money on farming of which he understood but little." (Emma Guy)

Shared note

The year of 1803 is assumed from the date of the first child's birth and notes in Emma Guy's story.
