I have been prowling the web and the genealogical sites related to Cornwall seeking more information about Richard Cornish. Richard Cornish immigrated from Cornwall arriving in Melbourne on the SS Norfolk in 1862.
Negotiating the local parish records and the English General Register Office is challenging to say the least. However, I have gleaned some valuable information concerning Richard Cornish’s parents, Samuel Cornish and Elizabeth Rogers Carter and their parents.
I would like to thank the Penwith Genealogy and their forum site for providing valuable information. Their help is appreciated.
