Unfortunately I have just come to realise that I have not done enough or should I say much research on John’s maternal side of the family.  But I do know know that his grandfather had only very recently become widowed and was living on a farm in 
Treludick, Egloskerry, Cornwall, England
(Ancestry.com, "1841 England Census," database online, Ancestry.com Operations Inc, Ancestry.com.  (www.ancestry.com.au : accessed 1 Jan 2010), entry for John Bone & family & Mary Ebbott, Treludick, Lines 10 - 14 & line 22, Civil Parish: Egloskerry; County: Cornwall; PRO HO107/134/7; Page: 10.)
  1. John Bone aged 60, Farmer(John’s very recently widowed grandfather)
  2. William Bone aged 20(John’s uncle)
  3. Julius Bone aged 20(John’s uncle)
  4. Jane Bone aged 25 (John’s aunt)
  5. John Coram aged 15
  6. Ann Congdon aged 15, Female Servant
  7. Henry Coraam aged 3
  8. Elizabeth Woof aged 35
  9. Fanny Woof aged 4m
  10. Richard Woof aged 10, Agricultural Labourer
  11. Walter Pearse aged 10, Agricultural Labourer
  12. Mary Ebbott aged 55 (John’s paternal grandmother) (see the discussion about Mary appearing twice in the census)
  13. Sarah Pearse aged 30, Female Servant
I still need to find the other unaccounted for children of John Greenwood Bone & Grace Batten who would be the maternal aunts & uncles of John Ebbott, it would be interesting to see if they were also living close by.
