For those with Cornish ancestors or a general interest in the area’s history, David Lay’s sale of Part I of the Pendarve archive on March 26 in Penzance may well be of interest.
It contains over 200 lots of Cornish and
English material from the Pendarve family, prominent 18th and 19th
century landowners with a history in mining who first came to the
Camborne area of Cornwall during the reign of Elizabeth I.
Estate records, deeds and leases from 1306
to 1881, court books, rent books, maps, mine plans and military and
political plans are all included in the archive, with estimates
ranging from £20-500.
Part II of the archive will be sold on June
