I haven't been on here for a while, but was pleased to see this topic.  Thomas Woodward who hanged himself at 13 was one of my family. (My g-grandmother's uncle I think)

Thanks Kerry for all the work.

Best wishes

Hi Clarke,   Welcome to Rootschat.

I can confirm that Luxulyan was in the Bodmin registration district.  Latterly it has been in the St Austell district and now the whole of Cornwall is one district.  Not good news for future family historians! 

I live about 2 miles from Luxulyan.

Thanks for your help.  Best wishes

Thanks so much Carolyn.  It's really great to have extra information which was handed down in the the family.

Kris, I went to the record office and didn't find very much more information than you did, so I sent for Agnes and John's marriage certificate.  Her father is stated as Frederick Fox and John was a mariner which would explain why they were in Falmouth.  They were married in the parish church but instead of the "Established" church it had been crossed out and "Catholic" put in and the officiant was described as "priest".  Do you think this would mean that it was Roman Catholic as I know that the RC church would not have necessarily licensed for marriages in 1867.
i also have the birth certificate for Agness Cragg and her parents are Frederick Cragg and Eliza (nee Allen)  i am really intrigued as to why they kept on changing names and where the Fox came from.  The Fox family in Cornwall was quite prominent!!

Thanks to all for your help and interest.

Best wishes, Ellen

Hi Jim 

Good to hear from you.  Welcome to Rootschat.  You will find that people on this site are incredibly helpful and friendly.

You probably read that I am working on my sister in law's family.  She was a Wilmot and her grandmother was Gertrude Isabelle Bate, daughter of William and Mary Bate.  She was sister to Ernest and William.  I would be interested to know who her Canadian relatives are so that I can  bring the tree more up to date.  I have a tree on Tribal pages at  You will need to send me a PM with your e-mail or to get the pass word for the tribal pages site.

Look forward to hearing from you.  Best wishes, Ellen

Thank you so much Kris that will really give me something to work on tomorrow as well as help my daughter with her in-laws family!  I don't think I would have found all that you did if I sat here until next week!!

Thanks again, Ellen

Hello everyone
Thanks for all the fabulous information.  I am having a bit of a rethink with my Trudgian tree as I have discovered a mistake.  All the family is the same, but my grandson's line has a wrong connection.  I will get back to this when I have sorted out the errors!  Meanwhile does anyone have any information on Agnes Fox who married John Honey Trudgian.  I have their marriage but can't find a birth for her.  According to the census she was born in St Mewan (St Austell) in 1848 and married in Falmouth in 1867.  She died in St Austell in 1921. I am going to the Cornwall Record Office on Thursday so hopefully will get more info there.
Back drekkly (in Cornwall that is an unspecified time in the future!!)
Best wishes

Hi Carolyn, Lovely to hear from you.
I have been researhing the Trudgian family as my grandsons are Trudgians so they can have a complete picture of their ancestry.
They are descended from Issachar's grandparents Joseph Trudgian and Dorothy Mitchell through their son William (1835 - 1918)  He died in Treverbyn parish and the family still live there!

I have the 9 children of Issachar and Isabella including some descendants of your grandmother Beatrice but I would be very interested to hear of Issachar's exploits and also what happened to the rest of the family, I guess they were all born and died in Australia.  Why did Issachar go to Australia - I know it was quite common for Cornishmen to emigrate at that time.

We live in the next parish to Luxulyan and if there is anything local I can find out for you please let me know.

It seems that the family who remained in Cornwall kept the Trudgian spelling and those who emigrated changed to Trudgeon.

With every best wish, Ellen

« on: Tuesday 12 January 10 09:35 GMT (UK)  »
My uncommon name is McYull.Name does not show on any census yet I have 3 certificates with the name.


Hi Ed - Have you tried searching with alternative spellings such as McYuill?  Good luck - Ellen
