I wonder if anyone could tell me if it is possible to obtain the records of someone who was a private patient in the District Lunatic Asylum in Bodmin later known as the Cornwall County Lunatic Asylum?
I would love to know a little more about John Treweeke of Breage (son of George Treweeke and Eliza Glasson) who was an inmate during the 1871 Census and I believe still there in 1901.
I obtained a copy of my gg grandfather's reception order for the Asylum from Cornwall Record Office, he was an inmate from 1879 to his death there in 1883. I telephoned CRO with the name and dates and they located all the records held for him.

I have just replied to you on your other thread but I did not know if you were interested in the Treweekes from Breage or not.
I came across the Treweekes via Eliza Glasson of Breage who married neighbouring farmer George Treweeke in 1828. They are just one of the those families that are often mentioned in newspapers and become far more than mere names and dates. So I began building up a picture of the Treweekes and am very happy to share anything I have.
Which of the Treweekes are you most interested in - there were many farms in the Breage area belonging to them?
I spoke to a very helpful lady today at the CRO today and I am awaiting the admission papers the John Treweeke I mentioned in my earlier post, plus his nephew George Hedley Treweeke Glasson who was also a patient/inmate in the Asylum. Apparently there is some correspondence in their files also. Not sure who the correspondence is to/from but perhaps from Australia as several Treweekes emigrated there with their Glasson relatives.
Hoping to hear from you. Feel free to message me if you prefer.
