Subject: [DEV] Cornish?

Stephen yn Kernow suggested that surnames might help in identifying whether or not families from Egloskerry, Tresmeer, Launceston, are Cornish. I hadn't thought to originally include surnames. Thanks for the idea.
Also, I did search online for surnames that are Cornish and found OLVER and CREEBA. Don't know if CREEBA could have morphed into CREEPER?
Years ago, I remember searching Feet of Fines, Cornwall Military Survey of 1522, Cornwall Muster Roll and Devon Muster Roll for 1569, Wills proved and registered in Cornwall Consistorial Court for 1690-1716, Visitation of the County of Cornwall in 1620, Cornwall Protestation Returns 1641, Hearth Tax in 1662, Land Tax Assessment Records, etc., etc.
Appreciate your help, Harriet
