    3. Hello List, there is a Thomas DOWRICK at the very end of this item. ------- Forwarded Message Follows ------- Source: [email protected] Subject: [CON] PRISONERS OF NAPOLEON IN 1811 I HOPE THE FOLLOWING WILL HELP SOME OF YOU BREAK DOWN A BRICK WALL The Source for this list is an article by Cyril Noall which appeared in the Autumn 1962 edition of Old Cornwall. GeorgeP LIST OF CORNISH PRISONERS OF NAPOLEON IN 1811 This list of Cornish prisoners held in Napoleon's prison camps makes very interesting reading today. Most Cornish towns, and a great many parishes, are represented; but the preponderance of names comes from the seaports of the county, indicating clearly that most of those taken were sailors, the great majority, no doubt, being from the merchant service. It should be noted that this list contains only the names of those men who were actually being held as prisoners in 1811. Many detainees had 'been released earlier, or had died in prison, and of course quite a number were taken subsequently to that date, up to the conclusion of the peace in .1814. The total number of Cornishmen held as prisoners in France at various times during the whole of the Napoleonic War period must, therefore, have been much greater than is actually shown here.
