Catherine was born in the village of Church Stretton in Shropshire (10 miles south of Shrewsbury), where her father was rector until his death in 1818. Somehow she met and married Francis Paynter from Cornwall, a man much older than herself who had been married previously. It seems she spent her married life living at Clarence House, in Penzance, where she was still living with her three of her sons (Francis E, 30, John de C, 26, and Frederic O, 17) at the time of the 1871 census (seven years after Francis's death). Five years later, she married Edwin Newman and lived at his home in Yeovil until her own death in 1880.
See Ian Caldwell's "Story of Frank Paynter" for further information about Catherine's background.
(also from Ian Caldwell) Harriette Emma Coleman married the Rev John Norgrave Baker, whose daughter Harriet Emma Baker (Fanny) married her first cousin Rev Beville Paynter (brother of Henry Augustus Paynter)
(from Helen Proctor, 12th Dec 2002): "Edward Bernard Coleman was my gt. grandfather. He married Louisa Elizabeth Jane Proctor, dau. of Lieut. .Gen.. Henry Adolphus Proctor of Aberhafesp Hall, Montgomeryshire. They had one son, Edward Bernard Coleman who in accordance with his grandfather's will had to change his name to Proctor when he inheritrd Aberhafesp. His first wife died and in 1891 he married my grandmother, Helen Mary Elizabeth Dixon, dau. of the rector. My father, Cecil Waring Proctor, was the second of their five children and was the last Proctor to be born at the Hall before it was sold. He was married in Georgia (then U.S.S.R.) to my mother, Olga Mikhailovna Chipadze in 1921. He brought her home to Wales and I, Helen Tamara, am the eldest of their three children. I have a sister, Margaret, and a brother, James. We are in touch with the Acton Scott branch of the family."
