The Ebbott and Bone families were close not only because John’s parents had married but because we see Jane Bone, older sister of Sarah Bone, being a witness at the marriage.
Warbstow was only 2.6 Miles/4.2 Km South East of Tresmeer so it would have been an easy journey for John’s parents, and the extended Ebbott family, to attend the wedding. John, who was only one year old at the time, he probably stayed home with one of the servants, and although the journey was short it would have been tiring for John’s mother in her delicate state (3 months pregnant).
Jane even in her official capacity as a witness to the marriage probably wouldn't have travelled alone, she most likely either travelled to the wedding with her parents. A wedding was always being a fine occasion for celebration and a chance to get out. It is difficult to know however whether Jane was accompanied by both her of parents or just her father. Jane’s mother (John’s maternal grandmother) died only 2 days after the wedding was it from all the excitement, or had she been poorly for some time, unfortunately we may never know as the details have been swallowed up by time.
