Bunt and Trudgian families
I am research the Bunt line from St Dennis, Cornwall, and my 2 x gt grandfather (Elijah Bunt) had a daughter Phoebe Grace Bunt who married Herbert Arthur Trudgian in Nov 1919 in St Dennis. They emigrated to Australia in June 1923. His parents were Thomas Vian Trudgian and Maria Louise Arthur. Herbert and Phoebe had 2 children, Douglas Trudgian who was born and died in 1924 in Lithgow, NSW, and Vera b 1925 - who always spelt her name differently as Vera TrudgEOn. I have only been able to research Vera up to 1972 as it's just too recent, but Vera and her father Herbert visited their families in Cornwall in May 1956. We are trying to find the link to the other Trudgeon as we are both descended from an Anthony Trudgian. We also have a lot of Trethewey in our line as well.(3) Many thanks Suzanne

red mail Search for Greenslade Peters connection
I am seeking relatives of my great grandmother Harriet Agnes Peters (nee Greenslade) who married William Henry Peters (born 1865) of Truro and had one daughter, Edith Florence May Peters in London in 1894, Harriet died probably in 1895. She might be the one listed as deceased in Paddington in 1895 and born in 1958. William Henry was as newspaper compositor. I am rapidly building a family tree and have got the Peters side back in 1830 and found relatives in Truro. I have a massive amount of info I can pass on as well.
