Thank you for a fascinating account of suffragette activity in Launceston and surrounding area. I've written an account of the suffragettes in North Devon and will shortly be giving an illustrated talk on suffrage in Cornwall. May I have permission to use the information and images on your site in the talk?

Well done on the mine history, you have done a lot of research for this. If I have any more photos, I will send them to you.

Just found your page about Second World War deaths and noticed you have my mum Gladys Mary Heaney nee Plummer listed as the mother of James Heaney who was gassed aboard ship 1943. She was his wife not his mother. He is buried in Upton Cross I hope you can correct this error, Many Thanks

Hello,can you help how do I get pictures and history about colliford lake before it was a reservoir please?
Admin Reply by: RogerPyke
I am not aware of much info or images of the area before its impounding other than what we have on the website. There was certainly attempts to mine in the area in the 18th and 19th centuries. Part of the area was/is known as Lords Waste so you might find more on this in one of the local libraries and the Cornwall records office holds some 22 different records attaining to Lords Waste @, although you will have to visit the office to view the records (think they may be closed at the moment due to their moving). I am sorry that I cannot be of much help otherwise.

I just want to say I think your site is marvellous. There is no stone left unturned. I just started doing my ancestry and I am a descendant of the Mason from in and around this area. I love being able to get visions of what life was like and of nowadays. SO a huge thank you.

Thanks Michelle, it is always good to hear that the site is proving to be of use. There are still quite a few Mason's still living in the area by the way.

Very in depth piece on John Couch Adams. I am a co founder of the recently formed Lanivet amateur astronomers and also together with the other two co founders we go into Lanivet Primary School and do an astronomy after school club once a week. Tomorrow we are covering Uranus and Neptune. The John Couch Adams page has been posted on our Facebook page. One request please? The article could do with a proof read as there are some spelling and grammatical mistakes in the piece.
Admin Reply by: RogerPyke
Thanks for this. I have revisited the page and corrected the spelling and grammatical errors.

What facinating information Roger! I learned so much here - especially that Lanson had a workhouse! Sad but compelling nonetheless! Thank you.

I am a descendant of the Prockter Family. My great grandmother was Annie Prockter. I have some large portraits of her ancesters, I think they may be James Eckley Prockter and Richard Edgecombe Prockter. I do not know who the other s are but assume brothers of afore mentioned. If anyone has any information about this family, I would be most grateful to receive it. My great grandmothers brother was Mayor of Launceston.
