Documents of Cornish history

21 March 2013Written by ATG Reporter

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 4.
