My father, now 81, has spent 35+ years researching our family name and has traced a line back to Mawgan in Pyder, Cornwall in the 1600s. The family later moved to Camelford, then to Truro and then scattered in all directions. Our line of the family moved to Preston, Lancashire, where my father was born. Others moved to London, Liverpool and Canada.
If anyone with connections to Cornwall would like to get in touch with us, please e-mail me and I'll pass it on to my father Deryck Arnall. He has a lot research, which we'd like to pass on, especially whilst my Dad is alive - he is the expert on the family tree. My knowledge is limited. Hope he can help someone with their research.
He also has information on connected families - i.e. The Rushforths, Grahams and Jacksons from Northumberland. Sorry if this is a bit vague.
