I'm tracing my Cornish family history. My Cornish grandparents were John Varcoe, clay miner, born in St. Stephens on May 22, 1877
and Elizabeth Jane Hingston (called Lilly) born in Sticker on June 25, 1879. Her parents were James Hingston born in 1846 in Sticker. Her mother was Amelia Buckingham, born 1849, died 1932 in St. Austell.
My grandfather, John Varcoe worked in the clay mines. His father was Thomas Varcoe, High Street, St. Stephens. His mother was Elizabeth Perryman.
I'm traveling to Cornwall in June with my son and grandaughter and would love to see if we can connect with any family. My mom used to correspond to Audrey Blake, at 4 Dalton Rd, Holmbush, St Austell. My mom passed awAy 2 years ago so I'm trying to piece our English heritage together. I believe my mom and Audrey were cousins.
Audrey had a son, Keith Blake, who I believe lived in St. Austell after he retired.
I would love to hear from anyone who could help me trace my Cornwall family.
