Sources of Information

On this page I intend to list all the sources of historical information for the Parish of Linkinhorne, that are not available on line.  I would be very interested to know about any articles written or papers and other material deposited in various places. The first entries are from the Old Cornwall Society Volumes and the Manorial Documents Register. Please note that there are a lot of interesting records held by the Duchy of Cornwall that are not available to the general public.
