James & Mary Ann Giles in Sound Island 1835

Surnames: Giles, Rodway, Beck, Brinston, Eddy
Looking for any information on the family of James and Mary Ann Giles, especially when/where they were married, what Mary Ann's maiden name was, and who their parents were. James and Mary Ann are thought to have been married either in England (possibly Dorset or Kent counties) or somewhere else in Newfoundland. Known children were Harriet b 1835; James C, b 1838; Mary Millie, b 1844; Sophia, b 1850; all born in Sound Island and baptised in Burin Methodist church. Harriet married John Rodway; Mary Millie married Thomas Beck; Sophia married William Eddy.

There were possibly three other children:
- Thomas Giles m. Elizabeth and had 8 children: Amander, Tryphena, Susannah, John Joseph, Amelia Jane, Tryphena Eliza, and two others whose names are not known. John Joseph married Harriet Ann Rodway in 1886 and had 6 children: Thomas, John Wilfred, Eli, Emily, James, and Eliza Lilian.

-Eliza Ann Giles who married Henry Beck in 1864; and

- Joseph Henry Giles who married Charlotte Brinston in 1865

I'd be grateful for any help on this family, and I'll gladly share what I do have about them.
