Great/G Grandmother Mary Maddern - a Memory of St Buryan.

My G/G Granmother's parents were married in the St Buryan Church on 31st Oct 1814, they were Richard Maddern & Mary Bennetts. I visited the area in 1997 and found it beautiful. I live in Rutherglen Aust. The old Madderns came to Australia with their children and are buried in Ballarat Cemetery. 2 of their sons were sadly killed in a mining accident in Ballarat. My G/G Grandmother Mary Maddern married Martin Edwards Trezise in St Just and migrated to Australia. Mary Maddern was also born in St Buryan. From Gillian Pitcher, Australia
