I was so sad to hear that one of your senior members Margaret Hunt has passed on.. She contributed a great deal to the founding of this website and contributed several important articles. I particularly liked the Tale of The Boden Fogu.

Dear St Keverne Local History Society,

I am an Australian trying to trace my Cornish ancestors who were living in St Keverne in 1851. They are the family of farmer Thomas and Susanna Penrose. The 1851 Census (Piece: HO107/1913, Folio: 376 Page: 13 Schedule: 51) records them living at Kanegie [sic] in St Keverne. Are you able to locate Kanegie, and if so, tell me a something about it? I am hoping to visit in 2019. Much appreciate your help. Best Wishes and thanks, Ian Penrose

So sad to hear of Bart O'Farrell's death, I first met him at the Cardiff College of Art in the early sixties, and stayed with him several times after he moved to
St. Keverne...

Good Bye to the Wizard of the Lizard, We will miss you!

CHARLES family of St.Keverne. Trying to find out a lot more about my ancestors. Philip Charles 1759-1835 I believe was a wrestler in the village and his father James Charles 1729-1782 built Tregidden Mill. I would like to know more about them and the Charles family. Philip married Grace Noy(e) and James married Ursula Pryor - his father Philip 1705-1743 married Wilmot Code. Thank you in anticiaption Gerry Brown

Thank you for your website. My interest is your Churchyard Cemetery where my ancestors (4x Gr-grandparents) and relations were buried in the mass grave for the victims of the Barque John. James and Jane (Goodman) Eastcott, 3 of their children, their daughter-in-law Sarah (Broad) Eastcott and her 5 children all drowned that tragic day on 3 May 1855. From North Petherwin and Poundstock and they were emigrating to join other family already in Canada. For some time I could not find them as they seemed to disappear, finding no trace on any census after 1851 nor in any church records or civil registration. A few years ago I found a website on the subject but it is no longer there. I have recently found other sites making mention of the wreck and newspaper accounts of the incident and the aftermath. You have made mention of transcribing notes on the wreck by Canon Diggens. If there is anything I can do to assist in that project please let me know.
Many thanks, Christol

Thank you to all the people who have contributed to this website. It is a wonderful tool for research, my link is with the Harris Family of St. Keverne, I have been able to trace all the way back to 1600.

Thank you and keep up the great work. ;)

Thank you for this family history. It would be cool if we are distantly related. My grandfather was William Thomas Rogers. There were at least two by that name in Tennessee, USA, that I know of. I have yet to discover grandpa's parents for sure. I know the story in my family stories of a Sarah Sweat in my direct relation.

Thanks again for the unique story and ancestral details.

Patricia Slocum. Write me if you want and if you can. I'd love to hear from you all.

Thank you to Terry and to all those who have worked so hard on this site! It's been invaluable in my family history search. Enjoyed the article about my great-grandfather, the smuggler. I'm planning a trip over to do more research and see where they all lived, and the information you've provided on this site will make the trip all the more enjoyable. Thanks again!
Happy Christmas to you all.

The 3rd May 2015 marks the 160th anniversary of the sinking of the Barque John. An emigrant vessel that left Plymouth in the afternoon and had run aground of the Manacles just over the parish border later that evening. I have been fascinated with this piece of your history and have written an article which I hope the Western Morning News might print in commemoration of those who lost their lives and as an expression of appreciation to those good people of your Parish who helped in the rescue mission. As your pages mention many passengers were from North Cornwall (ie my neck of the woods) and Devon. Thank you for this site.
