Family Ruse - a Memory of Launceston.

My family roots reach back to launcestone in the 1790, 1848, 1880. My ancestors even further back all christened in that church. In 1892, my grandfather came north to work in the mines of Yorkshire at the age of twelve (the good old days).

Hello, I was interested to read your post. My Launceston Ruse ancestors date back from 1765 and beyond. The church mentioned is Stephen by Launceston.
