From local gravestones:

George 1831 - 3/7/1913 an Bezurrel and wife Elizabeth 1832-17/9/1920. These identify with 1881 Cs pair, perhaps parents of Derrick and Dorothy on electoral roll from Bezurrel, who have children Elizabeth Mabel and Catherine Jane.

George Paul m Sandra Adele at Trevaskis Farm, Conor Downs on electoral roll

Edward Pooley m Elizabeth M. His date 23/3/1887 at Tappard.

John died 2/5/1934 aged 69 at Tregotha and wife Elizabeth 23/2/1939 aged 74. Their children Louie (f) d 12/4/1931 aged 28 and Herbert d 11/6/25 aged 27. SCH has Louise 1899.

Arthur died 25/11/1957 aged 68.

Note 1873 Return of Owners of Land has Mrs Eustice of Gwinear with 12A 1R 6P (London PRO) rent valued at £4 2s 1d p.a.

Don -ace provided the chart below in 1982. I have not checked it but he visited Elizabeth Mabel sometime in the 80s so it may have first hand input. Note Pooley figuring as a first name. Richard DL married Grace Pooley Crowan 1795. From 1882 Gwinear Cs Henry Pooley butcher and Farmer 32 acres aged 55; James Butcher 25; William Pooley, 53, copper miner. I found none in 1841 Cs 1841 but Buzzurel was full of Daveys. Gwinear Down has Wm Pooley. Plenty of Harveys, Bawdens/Bowdens, Shunggs/Smuggs ande Huthnancde. Check entries from Gwithian and Crowan for connections.
