how to use this site
Charts directly related to Bernard and Rae Eustice are ordered by name in date order in 'direct line'.
Other Cornish Eustices are grouped by place name. Information on local areas will be attached to those entries.
Abbreviations are explained in documents and sources.
Note this is a UK site so dates are recorded as day/month/year - 7//1/1950 = 7th January and not 1st July.
You can use the search engine as a starting point.
This is a work in progress, with attendant potential for errors in transcription as well as research. If you have any comments, questions or contributions, you can contact Paul Eustice through info(at)bpfe.eu. He holds a number of original documents, along with current addresses and information not loaded to this site for reasons of time, space or privacy.
The original material was gathered before the internet and PCs were in common use. It was organised in box files and on card indexes. It has not been used for some decades and is now slowly being pulled together in web format. It will be released for communal research before all the entries are complete, so that others can use the information and start to contribute. If you are seeking more detail it is always worth asking.
If you want to include information of your own, you can downoad a typical blank chart. Ideally, information submitted for inclusion should follow this model.
If you want larger typeface, press control then press CTRL and + to enlarge or - to reduce, or use the wheel on your mouse.
NOTE: If you are looking for a particular name, remember that some are interchangeable in certain areas and/or at certain times. For eample, Ann and Hannah or Nancy; Jenny and Jane or Jennifer; Peggy and Margaret; Mary and Mally, Molly or Polly; Elizabeth for Betty or Eliza. This may be a function of dialect, with different habits in, say, Cornwall and Yorkshire. Also, of course, bureaucratic idleness means some names were written down wrongly - at least one child briefly changed sex through bad record keeping. If a child has two names, then it might be recorded by different names in different records - the record keepers being under orders to use only one name and not too fussy which one they use. It is always best to check both parish record and census if possible, and at different dates.
