Key Family - Gwennap/St Day
I am descended from Nicholas Key who married Eleanor Michell in Gwennap 25/06/1794. Eleanor was said to be from Redruth and Nicholas was recorded as a 'sojournor' (I think he may have been a blacksmith). However, there is a record of an Eleanor Michell being baptised in Gwennap on 13/06/1774. Nicholas and Eleanor had 3 children: Eleanor, Joseph and John born in Gwennap between 1795 and 1798. I am descended from Joseph who married Sally Brokenshire in St Wenn 22/10/1821. The family later moved to St Just in Penwith in the 1830s where they stayed until the 1880's when my part of the family moved to Brotton, Yorks. I am happy to share more information with anyone who is interested.
