Annie Ellison married Isaac George Mallett, son of Sydney George who died in WW1. I looked with interest at the the WW1 exhibition panels & the St Neot 1914 volunteers. As John Jack Mallett is pictured on the right, Sydney is probably in the group also. Isaac and his two younger brothers all married in Bury Lancashire in the 1930s (I have a wedding photo of Isaac and Annie) but Isaac's older brother Frederick stayed in Cornwall. I would love to find out more about the Malletts and what happened to the family after their father was killed.
Sue send me another guestbook comment with your email address on it. It won't appear on the website as I have to moderate it first. I will then send you contact details for the St Neot Malletts. Chris Ooops! very sorry Sue I pressed the wrong button and have lost your email address please send me it again. There doesn't appear to be any way to retrieve it. I'll try not to do it the next time! Chris

I am a decendant of the Kemp/Olliver/Lobb/Lean/Bone group of wandering mining families that spring or finally rested in St Neot. I have just adored all the picture and historical information available. I am planning a trip over in 2016 ( I live in Australia . . . no we weren't sent there. by and large I haven't found any that were convicts) . I will be staying in touch with your town and groups, family history is a joy.
Thanks for the email Eva, we have had Olliver (with both two and one L's) and Lobb families here in the past. We can send you some details of miners from the St Neot census results from 1851, 61, 71, 81, if you leave an email address.

I live in Perth, Western Australia, but in 1940 during WW2 I was evacuated from London to St. Neot where I spent 4 plus years at Tremaddock Farm. I was only 8 years old on arrival and remember those years with great fondness. Thank you for this website, I will be visiting it regularly from this end of the world. Many thanks to Jill Thomas for her book "A Glance over the Shoulder, St. Neot Parish from the 18th to the late 20th century.

Congratulations on opening the history center and web site. It was so surprising to find photos of Rowe family in the school pictures. It makes doing genealogy from across the pond much easier. I will look forward to additional postings in the future.
Thanks for your email Kathryn. We have someone in the village who takes an interest in "Families" have you been in contact with Arthur Runnalls? Ed
