My paternal ancestors (Box) owned the iron foundry down by the Bude canal in Marhamchurch until the coming of the railway in the mid 1800s. Many are buried in the churchyard.
My maternal grandparents (Nichols) lived in Marhamchurch in the late 1900s and their daughter Phyllis married a farmer (Charles Routley) who farmed at Cann Orchard. I spent much of the war years on this farm.
My darling Aunty Phyllis died on Saturday March 5th aged 90.
