James Grigg - birthplace
Posted by David Murrian on 30/4/2021, 7:53 am
Would welcome opinions as to the actual place of birth of James Grigg in 1871 Census. He is at Calstock, Cornwall - District 18, Schedule No. 250. Even the address is difficult, but fairly sure it is 25 Orchard Cottage(s). Place of birth is worse. Ancestry have it transcribed as Guenis and the wife is just ditto. In 1881 it is much clearer for him as Camborne & wife as Gwennap. In 1891 it is clear as Gwennap for both. I have wondered whether 1871 is supposed to be Gwennap but badly written ??
Does anyone have any thoughts?
