Tinhay(?), Brentor/Mary Tavy
Posted by Vic on 6/10/2021, 7:54 am
I am currently researching the Boney family of Brentor/Mary Tavy. |
In 1939 Wilfrid is recorded as living at Wortha Engineering Works, Brentor, Tinhay. His brother, Leonard, at Blacknor Park, Tinhay. Tavistock R D. (I have not had the advantage of examining the original record).
Having lived for part of my youth at Wortha Cottage, I am familiar with both locations which I know to be situated between Wortha Farm and Wortha Mill, off the Brentor to Mary Tavy road.
I have never heard of this area being referred to as Tinhay, and the only place of that name I can find is in Lifton.
Can anyone provide me with an explanation, please?
