Entry: keeping up with the Cornish
Description: As the twentieth century dawned on our former colonies, the Cornish were well-entrenched. Free from fitless wandering as their native soil's resources dwindled, they had adapted like chameleons to a new land. Keeping track of their numbers is absolutely impossible, with new pages being written every minute and some folk having thousands of descendants. Like my Amelia Seccombe of Redruth, or William Treasure (admittedly not Cornish) of North Bruham.
