I am trying to trace the Lanyon family who once owned a property known as Lanyon Gwinear (which I have a print of) whose family motto was "vive vt viva". My late aunt,Emmie(Molly)Gwendoline (nee Cooper) was married to T.S "Mark" Lanyon. He had a brother Gwinear, also there was Alastair(born about 1963; shown as a baby sitting on David's knee?) and Alison - both her Lanyon nephew and niece. So far have had no luck trying to "find" them; only four photos and "Citation 1914-1918: Military Cross" awarded to T.S. Lanyon; my main problem not knowing what the "T.S." stands for as my aunt was widowed by the time I was born. The "family" always referred to him as Mark...... If anyone recognises anyone or can give me more "history" of the family/house; it would be very much appreciated.

red mail Ann Stevens of Gwinear
Ann Stevens was born on the 17th of December 1839 in Gwinear, Cornwall, England. Her parents were John Stevens and Mary (nee: Medlin) Stevens. She married William Henry Mitchell in September 1857. William was from Cambourne, Cornwall, England. Records are Saint Catherines House, England, Genral Registrar, Mitchell WH, Redruth Volume 5C page 1155 (details we have were incompleated). Ann moved with William to Ballarat, Victoria, Australia in 1865? Then to Maldon in 1859? (then called Mt Tarangower)Victoria, Australia.They possible already had 11 children before they came to Australia (some previously deceased?) They moved to Chapmans Gully, a gold diggings in Maldon/Loden district. Ann died in 1932, and was said to have had 32 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren. (yep, Mitchell is a common name indeed!!)She died in Flemington Victoria, Australia and was burried with her husband William in Maldon. As of 1932 her children still living and their estimated age in 1932 are: Eliza Jane 72, Ellen 68, Elizabeth 60, Charles Woodhall Mitchell 58, Jospeh Howard Mitchell 56 (my great grandfather), Daisy 52, William 50, John Stevens 48 (John is possibly burried in the Keilor Cemetary, Victoria, Australia with his wife Ethel May (nee:?)). Those deceased prior to 1932 (as on Ann's death certificate) are: Ellen Stevens, John, Thomas and Annie. Looking for her links in Cornwall. Would love to know of other Medlin's in the area around c.1830's. Thanks.
