Memories of Cornwall
Hello, I am trying to locate "Quietways" home. A very close friend of the family has written to me many times and the only address he has given me is "Quietways", Kingswood Road, Gunnislake PL18.9DF. Would it be possible to assist me in contacting Peter Wills at this address? I would be very grateful if we could contact him. Thanking you in advance, Ann Laing
Looking For Family in Gunnislake
My father was born in Gunnislake, and lived there until two years of age with his mother Olive Sutton-Willcocks. My grandfathers name was John Willcocks, I think his sister's name was Sussie, but I'm not sure. My grandmother's, brothers name was Frank Sutton, he was in the Navy and was a Mason. My grandfather's family owned the Rising Sun Tavern in Gunnislak,e or that is what I was told. My father Douglas Willcocks, was born in 1921 and returned to the US with his mother and brothers and lived in Michigan, until his death this last summer, he was 90. He always talked about as a boy, how he would run to the mailbox every day and without fail there would be a letter from his grandmother in England, and he would deposit a letter from his mother to her mum.

Remember The O'Hara Nelson Family?
An elderly friend of mine would dearly like to know what became of her good friend, Mr. Tony O'Hara Nelson whose family lived in Gunnislake in the 1940's. I believe Tony was an actor in a touring company during the war.

Day Trip From Calstock
I used to holiday in Calstock with my parents, staying with my grandparents who lived in the village. I used to regularly take their golden Cocker spaniel, Vicky, for a walk up to the railway station. This was around the early 1950s to about 1956.
I remember being taken, with my parents and by a family friend, to a place which I think would have been perhaps up to an hour's car ride away - probably much less. I believe it was still on the Cornish side of the Tamar but we may have crossed to Devon. At this place I was able to swim. My recollection is that is was a sort of rectangular, stone construction pool, possibly spring fed as it was very cold! It wasn't a 'public' pool and wasn't all that large but I am unable to suggest how big it was. ( I believe it was fresh water.) I've read Roger Deakin's book, 'Waterlog', but can't find anything there!
