The Martin Family Of Stithians In Cornwall (B&W version)

Author: Edward Martin
Copyright: 2012 5th Edition.

Description: 327 pages, 8.5" X 11" trade paperback, glossy pictorial cover.

Detailed maps, family trees and B&W Coats of Arms.

This much sought after and hard to find book is available in print for the first time in almost 20 years, the author Mr. Edward Martin has received many requests for a reprint and it is our great pleasure to offer this for sale. The book contains detailed maps, family trees and Coats of Arms. Details are included regarding those Martins who emigrated from Cornwall to Australia, Canada, South Africa and elsewhere. The companion volumes are offered below. There is also a concise history of the parish of Stithians and a history of the Martin surname in the British Isles. 

This pedigree of the Martin family of Stithians contains details of approximately 2,900 Martins and of about 1,100 of their wives and husbands. It has taken well over twenty years to compile and in that time the author has made many changes and corrections to his original work. Even now it is impossible to be certain about all the descents -the Martins were very numerous and tended to use many of the same Christian names. in time some of the descents presented here will prove to be erroneous, however this volume presents the best approximation to the truth that is possible on the current known evidence. 

In organising this work the author has attempted to follow each line in order of seniority, though for the earlier generations there are often few clues as to the seniority of the various lines-in these cases the order has had to be arbitrary. It is worth noting that the parish registers of Stithians are very poor for the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. These have been cross­checked with the contemporary Bishop's Transcripts, but these do not exist for every year.

Stithians Families I & II - A Cornish Community (B&W version)

Author: Edward Martin
Copyright: 2009 5th Edition.

Description: 376 pages, 8.5" X 11" trade paperback, glossy pictorial cover.

Detailed maps, family trees and B&W Coats of Arms and B&W photographs. This combines two books into one volume.

In many parish histories the ordinary people occur as inconsequential extras: mere names that are subordinate to grander themes. In this book the author has given the detailed histories of the families that played an important part in the society of one parish in western Cornwall. As well as chronicling their lives, he has also attempted to look at their social background, origins, inter­relationships and ultimate dispersal around the world.

It is hoped that this work will be of interest not only to those who, like the author, are descended from some of the families featured in the book, but also to more general historians as an illustration of the human element that went into the making of one Cornish community.

Surnames covered in these detailed histories and genealogies are: ANDREW of Stithians, BATH of St. Breward & Stithians, BISHOP of St. Gluvias & Stithians, COODE of Morval, COODE OF Menheniot, Breage & Sithney, COODE of Stithians, COODE of Lansallos, Wendron & Sithney, DUNSTON, DUNSTAN of Stithians, GILL of Morval & Stithians, KNUCKEY of Stithians, MORTON of Launceston & Stithians, ODGER of Mullion, Crowan & Stithians, OPPY of Redruth, Wendron & Stithians, PEARCE of Gwennap & Stithians, PENHALURICK of Stithians, PHILLIPS of Perranarworthal & Stithians, POLSUE of Goran, POLZEW of Goran, Gwennap & Stithians, POLSEW of Mevagissey,  REED of Wendron & Stithians, SARAH OF St. Just-In-Roseland, St. Michael Penkivel & Stithians, SPARGO of Mabe & Stithians, TRELEASE of Stithians, TREVENA of St. Gluvias & Stitians, TREWEEK of Stithians, Truro, Lelant, Camborne & Penzance, TREWEEK of Stithians & Gwennap, TREWEEK of Breage, TREWEEK of Constantine & Redruth, VEALE of Gwennap & Stithians, WHITE of Stithians, WILLIAMS of Stithians & Gwennap, WILLIAMS of Stithians, & WINSOR of St. Gluvias, Wendron & Stithians.

Description: 182 pages, 8.5" X 11" trade paperback, glossy pictorial cover.

Detailed maps, family trees and colour Coats of Arms and colour photographs. This volume 1 of two volumes.
In many parish histories the ordinary people occur as inconsequential extras: mere names that are subordinate to grander themes. In this book the author has given the detailed histories of ten families that played an important part in the society of one parish in western Cornwall. As well as chronicling their lives, he has also attempted to look at their social background, origins, inter­relationships and ultimate dispersal around the world.

It is hoped that this work will be of interest not only to those who, like the author, are descended from some of the families featured in the book, but also to more general historians as an illustration of the human element that went into the making of one Cornish community.
