The data behind 1851 Census story for the Ebbott family

Earlier today I posted another up date  for the Family history writing challenge entitled  The Ebbott Family in 1851 Census to see the full story, but behind that story is a lot of supporting data.  It takes a lot of data to build a story without which the story is just a myth or so I'm lead to believe, which is why I try to document all before beginning to write the story. Before I begin I thought it would be timely to show how I am connected to the person that I am writing about on my associated Blog "The Life of John Ebbott"
Living in Cornwall within a 5 mile radius of Tresmeer

Philip & Mary Ebbott were living in the same place where they had been in 1841 in Trerummer, Tresmeer, Cornwall, England as they were in 1841 (Cornwall Online Census Project-1851)
