A Memory of Bude.

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.

With thanks to Meg Leng for this memory of Bude

Comments & Feedback

My mothers maiden name was Box, and I am the great, great, great grandson of John Box - 1788 to 1849, through his son William.
I am interested in any Box family history
