Description
 
The Cornish have long since considered themselves a race apart from the English and their origins are indeed related to those of the Scots, Welsh and Breton peoples rather than to folk in the rest of England. As such, Cornish family names have evolved in a different was to others across England: many can be directly traced back to the ancient Celtic language, while some originally derived from the features of the Cornish landscape such as Brea for hill, Pen for headland or Pol for pool.

This handy lexicon, drawn together from exhaustive research, serves not only to give the origins and meanings of over 100 true Cornish family names, but also seeks to delve into the family histories of the folk who have proudly borne these names right across the world down the centuries. It is packed with information and stories of many Cornish people who have left their mark and their family names in some of the farthest flung corners of the world, even as far as Antarctica.

This excellent reference is not only for those with an interest in family names, but also for anyone wishing to learn more about the exploits and adventures of Cornish people down the centuries.
