John Williams Tuckingmill Tolgarrick Tim Streamer
« on: Wednesday 02 October 19 12:56 BST (UK) »
I am researching John Williams died 1895.
He and his family ran Tolgarrick tin stream at Tuckingmill, near Camborne, Cornwall.

I plan to write an article about his life for the Cornwall Family History Society.

There is another article in the same paper Cornishman 4 April 1895 page 6 and the title is A Modern Good Samaritan.

You may perhaps have already seen this?

Thanks

I have previously found Census Entries and also newspaper reports following the death of John Williams in 1895.
I am hoping to find out more his life as a Wesleyan Methodist lay preacher and about the details of the Tin Streaming business, which must have been very successful because John Williams left an Estate of 11,000 when he died.

My goodness me, that was a lot!  Worth around 1,375,000 in today's money.

Have you looked at this website?  It may give you some pointers to finding out more about John Williams.
