    I am only half-Cornish,

    from my mother. But if by some chance she comes across this page and works out it's her daughter, she would *insist* I mention my Cornish heritage (this is despite the fact she left there at 18 and hasn't lived in the county since...). My mum who is a bit of a family-history...

    Family Origins

    My family originated from Cornwall. My ancestor Thomas Flamank was one of the leaders who marched the Cornish to London. I would love to go visit and to learn the language.
