red mail 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 late 1830s where they stayed until the 1880's when my part of the family moved to Brotton, N.Yorks. I am happy to share more information with anyone who is interested.

red mail Gilly farm, Gwennap
Several of my family (Dower and Williams for example) are described as having been born at or living at Gilly farm. Can anyone explain what this meant in the 18th and 19th centuries? I visited Gilly Farm a few years back and found it a vast area with several stone farmhouses some more important looking than others. They looked as if they ahd been there a long time. Did small families live scattered across the farm and work as agricultural labourers there perhaps? Would be grateful for any information. With thanks Donna
