Re: re: Boscastle Coachman

Reference the coach and horses outside The Wellington Hotel. My mother has exactly the same photo in her family album and she always maintains that the coachman is her father and the people in the back her aunts and uncles.
My mother`s name is Sybil Symons and her father was called Pentecost. He was a farmer at Welltown, Trevalga near Bocastle. I know little about him, but I do know that he was in the cavalry and was employed as a coachman in the local area.
Can you verify or otherwise?

Look forward to reply

Also his beloved wife Philippa Saltern, dau. of the late Frederick Jewel who died Jan. 30th 1933 aged 77' The other grave reads 'In loving memory of James Squire, died Dec. 6th 1891 aged 67, and of Peggy Hicks wife of the above who died Oct. 31st 1886 aged 56. Also Robert John, son of the above died 7th Dec. 1867 aged 7 months. Blessed is everyone that feareth the Lord.'
