Pleased to see you have joined our forum Tracy. I'm a two or three times a year visitor to St Just, therefore no grave-hopping for me, but I'm sure your offer will be much appreciated by others. I've been hovering over whether to move to Chapel Street, but for now I'm remaining in sunny Notts. Good hunting Mike

Hello Tracy, I am looking for Eliza Grenfell Bond (husband Thomas) and knowledge of any Appledore graves in St. Just. Eliza died about 1880 and Thomas, 1863. I have had a great time finding family in Cornwall and many lived in St Just. I hope to visit at some point probaly not til 2013/4. With Google maps I've seen where some lived over in New Downs and Fore St. St Just looks like such a lovely town. I live in the US. Thank you! Phillip Bond
Phillip. Go to the site, Cornwall opc. From this,Eliza Bondl buried 5 july1880, of Churchtown,aged 80. No sign of Thomas (as yet) Thomas Bond married Eliza Grenfell 11 jan 1843 at Paul. Thomas was a Mariner, Father Richard a Fisherman. Eliza'sFather Pascoe Grenfell deceased. Witnesses Paul Tonkin Bond and James Richards. Have a lot of info on the Grenfells so willlook further for you. RW

Thank you, Cornwall OPC is helpful, everything in one place. Over the years, I've found family going back several generations in St Just, Newlyn, Madron and Gulval. OPC helped me take the family back one more generation. With Google maps I found the St Just cemetary by the town hall and am hoping Appledore and Bond headstones have survived... I'm looking forward to making a trip to Cornwall. What a lovely area!
