    Looks like I'm the first to post in the Cornwall Forum.
    I’ve been searching the Cornwall Record Office Collections, Manorial Records and Personal Papers and this is one of the documents I am interested in, does anyone know if it is digitized yet, or how I might be able to view it without the expense of an airline ticket? The “notes on the Ley family” mentioned is all I was curious about as I’m trying to see if there is a connection between the Leys of Penzance/Madron and my lot from Mylor and St Ives.
    Thanks.
    Hugh.

    The record office provide a copying service:

    http://www.
    cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=14713

    They should be able to advise you on whether the notes on the Ley family are suitable for copying, and (if so) which copying option to choose.

    I don't know where my reply went to, maybe I hit the wrong button? anyway thanks to both of you for replying, I'll contact the CRO and see if I can just get the notes re the family.
    Thanks again Barbara and Huncamunca.
    Hugh.

    Check the National Archives web pages as well.
    They may have additional papers of interest.

    Thanks Dee Dee, I have found quite a few useful docs at the N A, one court case to do with the administration of several estates gave me three generations of my Ley family in the 1600's which was real handy as the PR's for Mylor of that era were destroyed in WW2.
    Thanks for the input.
    Hugh.
