Amelia Hawke - a Memory of St Germans.

I came to live in Cornwall, just nine miles from St. Germans in December 2006. Much to my amazement, I found that my Great Grandmother, Amelia Hawke was born and brought up here in the house next door to the post office. Her father George Hawke was a bootmaker. I did much research into the Hawke family while I lived in Cornwall for about 15 months and still go back as often as I can to see all the graves of my ancestors in the graveyard opposite the church.
