Neal Point Landulph
« on: Monday 26 December 11 16:10 GMT (UK) »
I am hoping someone may be able to help or point me in the right direction.
I am trying to find out why Neal point on the Tamar river at Landulph was so named?

Thanks in Advance

Ken

Hi Ken, I was told that the Neal's owned a quay side aswell as land there that they used to farm. The Neal family owned sailing craft also and would transport theirs and other peoples goods along the Tamar to the city of Plymouth

Thanks for that Star Kernow. Do you know who told you this? I have hunted high and low for more info but found absolutely nothing

Cheers Ken

The Royal Cornwall Gazette, 29 July 1859, carried a report of a rowing match " ... from the Western pier of the Royal Albert Bridge to a mark off Neal Point ..." involving the men of Saltash.

Hi Ken, my surname is in fact Neal. The info was passed on from my relatives. I have also heard there's  also the possibility that in the first instance (possibly as early as something like AD 680) That an Irish nobleman called Niahl (or similar) landed there. Possibly coming over with st. Dominica. Niahl becoming Neal or being sold to the Neal family in later years ?

Well we have something in common.  There are a few stories of where the name may come from including from.the Icelandic Njall.

Happy to swap notes if you would like to.message me

Hi Star

Forgot to say there was a Neal at Cargreen ( relative) who was listed as a farmer in all but one of the census records apart from one where he is listed as a bargeman so this does make some sense.
