Today we went to Truro, the main town of Cornwall to go to their record office & do some research even though we had hardly any time there. I found the records of baptisms of 4 of my ancestors between 1780 & 1805.
The we met up with Beryl & John whose GGGG grandparents, Charles Couch & Honour Phillips, are also my GGGG grandparents. Beryl has been researching for years so has found a great deal of information. We found each other online ages ago.
Ray, Beryl’s husband was also there as was their friend Janie. We all hit it off really well & there was much chatter & laughter. We had a wonderful day & will definely keep in touch. We had lunch at a great pub, The Heron, beside the Truro river, a lovely spot. I couldn’t get over how much John looks like my brother Kent.
When we got back here, we went into Port Isaac for one last visit! It’s so beautiful but I’d still prefer to live at Lota! Tomorrow morning we head to Heathrow.
My head is spinning with all the family stories I’ve heard & all the information I’ve gathered, & especially meeting all these lovely cousins. I’ll have so much to collate when I get home.
We’re so glad we came! It’s been tremendous. This is the three of us:
