red mail John Tinney 1819-1862
Im looking for any information someone may have on the Tinney family who lived in St Columb Minor in 1800s. James Tinney born 1776 married to Mary Bassett was my GGG Grandfather followed by John Tinney born 1819 and married to Amey Tresidder and my GGrandmother was Allarina Kesia Tinney married in London to George Bradley. Allerina Kesia is a very unusual name and I would love to find out any more details about the family and their lives.
William Retallick & Catherine (Kitty) Pill
My 3x great-grandmother was Johanna Retallick born 1836 in St Columb Major. Her parents were William Retallick (1800 - 1856) & Catherine (Kitty) Pill (1797 - 1868). I am interested in making contact with descendants of Johanna's siblings Elizabeth (Betsey) born about 1830, William born about 1832, Martha & Mary both born about 1834. The family is together on the 1841 census. On the 1851 census only Martha and Johanna are listed with their parents. On the 1851 census Elizabeth is a servant in the house of John Tonkyn and William is an apprentice living in the house of Samuel Couch. There is a Mary Retallack age 18 as a servant in the house of Richard Tinney in Tregavethan who may be Mary as the Tinney family originate from St Columb. Johanna migrated to Australia in 1857. On the 1861 census Catherine (as Kitty) is living with Kate Retallick who is Johanna's illegitimate daughter. Kate migrates to Australia in 1868 after Kitty's death. William the son marries Mary Ann Walkey in St Austell in 1854 and that same year migrates to Australia. He dies in Victoria Australia in 1902. It appears Elizabeth married in 1860 in Plymouth, Devon to Thomas Baker who was a ship steward. She is widowed by 1871 and died in Totnes, Devon in 1914. Mary is in Plymouth in 1861 as a house servant in the home of George Tulley. It appears she marries in 1868 to Phillip Burley and dies in Plymouth in 1875 but I have not found the couple on the 1871 census. I have not found Martha past the 1851 census. Any information about them would be greatly fully received.

red mail Lobb family
Looking for family of Mary LOBB born c1805, probably St Columb Major, convicted 1839 at St Columb Major. The court transcript in newspaper report shows Mary had a daughter, and there is mention of 12 year old Sarah LIDDICOAT being involved in the crime. Mary LOBB was transported to Tasmania in 1839 for seven years. It is possible her daughters were Harriet LOBB and Ann LOBB.

red mail Tregilgas
My GG grandfather - Francis Tregilgas was born in St. Columb. approx. 1833 just wondering if anyone has any information on this family.
red mail Mitchell
My great grandfather, John Nankivell Mitchell, was born in St Columb in March 1862. He trained somewhere in Cornwall as a flour miller before emigrating to Australia, according to family 'legend' at the age of 18, which would make his arrival around 1880. Apparently his sweetheart, Annie Hooper followed him and by 1886 my grandmother was born in Bathurst NSW where JNM was managing a flour mill owned by the Crago family. I also became a flour miller and would like to identify the mill where he trained, preseumably as an apprentice.
red mail Arscott
I am descended from John Arscott who was road warden of St Columb about 1708. And his son James (1720-1805) who lived at "Rosedinnick", was a millwright and landowner and has a tombstone in the churchyard. Property named in his will includes "Carter's tenement" and "Hoskins' or Doncaster tenement". I can't find out where John came from. There was a prosperous Arscott family in Devon though.
