I had a look at the 1851 to 1871 censuses for Cornwall (see http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kayhin/cocp.html) but couldn't find either of this couple in the St Columb district. I suspect that neither of them were born in the area. I also looked through the C-PROP database (see my sig below) but they don't appear in that either. There is a lady in Wadebridge who has a huge database of many of the parish records in the area. You could ask on the Cornwall rootsweb lists and see if you can get a result there. -- ==== Michael Lightfoot Canberra, Australia OPC Merther & St Breock, Cornwall see http://www.cornwall-opc.org michael.lightfoot@pcug.org.au ====

    1. [CORNWALL-AUSTRALIA] Cornish Mosaic decoration
    2. colin hollow
    3. Hi I have had this request from a friend of Cornish origin (a HOLLOW) and am appealing to anyone on the list that may be able to help. I wonder if any of your Hollow Loggers would know anything about a book I read about 10-15 years ago. I'm very sorry I did not buy it as all attempts to trace it through libraries have failed. The book is about wall decorations made by the wives of Cornish miners, using broken pottery. Most of the examples came from villages where Cornish miners lived in South Australia. I believe there is a big one in Ballarat. I was very surprised because I had not heard of this form of decoration but I had covered a monier brick wall at out home in Armidale NSW with broken plates and smashed tiles. I wonder if Cornish women have a gene for decorating walls with broken plates. I'd love to hear if anyone knows the names of the villages where I might see these walls decorated with plates or the name of the book. Regards, Colin Hollow

    1. [CORNWALL-AUSTRALIA] POADs Emigrating to Western Australia
    2. Pauline Hall
    3. Can anybody help, My great uncles - Charles Robert and John Henry Poad were sent on their own, by their widowed mother, Mary Ann Poad, to Western Australia. She followed five years later with her two younger daughters. The boys - who were from Callington, Cornwall, departed Plymouth on the 27th October, 1900 on board the ship “Omrah”, arriving in Fremantle early January, 1901. John was only 13 and Charles 10 when they made the journey. There are no other Poad’s or Robert’s (mother's family name) travelling on the same ship. They may have stayed in Perth, Western Australia, but the entire family did end up living in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. I have assumed that the boys must have been met when they arrived by family. Is it common for young children with family to travel like this? THanks, Pauline

    1. [CORNWALL-AUSTRALIA] ANZAC Day 2009.
    2. Corinne Thompson
    3. It is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand - a national day of commemoration, named in honour of the ANZACS - the brave men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp who fought and died at Gallipoli. Ninety-four years has passed since that disastrous landing just before dawn on the 25th. April 1915 - and with time and the passing of the last of the original ANZACS - the day has taken on additional layers of meaning. Today, we commemorate all Australian service men and women (many of whom were of Cornish descent) who have died in the various conflicts throughout our country's short history. I have just returned from another Dawn Service at The Shrine Of Remembrance here in Melbourne which I attend each ANZAC Day, not to glorify war, nor to endorse conflict of any kind - but to honour all who have served, no matter their nationality, or which side they were on. To me, you are ALL heroes. For all ex-servicemen and women, and their descendants, who are unable to attend a service, here is the Last Post played by a bugler from the band of The Royal Military College, Duntroon http://www.awm.gov.au/commemoration/last_post.htm "They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them." This is the most quoted verse from "For the Fallen" by a Cornishman, Laurence Binyon. The full poem is pasted below. With Deepest Respect ...... Corinne in Melbourne, Australia. "For the Fallen With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children, England mourns for her dead across the sea. Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free. Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres, There is music in the midst of desolation And a glory that shines upon our tears. They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. They mingle not with their laughing comrades again; They sit no more at familiar tables of home; They have no lot in our labour of the day-time; They sleep beyond England's foam. But where our desires are and our hopes profound, Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight, To the innermost heart of their own land they are known As the stars are known to the Night; As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain; As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, To the end, to the end, they remain." Laurence Binyon (1869 - 1943)
