Tour Details

I have a great interest in this subject as I have spent a lot of time researching my own family history in Cornwall.

I have managed to trace my ancestors back hundreds of years in Cornwall and have visited many of the churches they attended, mines, towns and villages in which they worked and graveyards where they were laid to rest.

I can offer my guests the opportunity to do the same for their ancestors.

Many thousands of Cornish people emigrated from Cornwall during the middle of the nineteenth century, a good number of them left from my home town of Padstow, in fact for a while more people were leaving from Padstow than from any other port in the UK, for more information on this please have a look at this link to Padstow Museum http://padstowmuseum.webplus.net/imigration.html.

Some of my own relatives actually emigrated to the United States of America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand during this period from Cornwall.
