Gandolf: I cannot help very much here. Cornish Terrier (Ian) may have some info. about the Harris family/families on his database. I think I have posted all I know: I can list 4 gens of Harris, who seem to come from Devon, ending up at Kenegie, Gulval. Arundell: which branch? I do not know, but others may be able to assist. David.
Trencom, thanks for the suggestion. The copy of Vivian's that I had did not include the Harrises of Kenegie, but found it in another copy on the web.
Unfortunately I cannot see anything at the moment that suggests that they connect to my Richard Harris. However I was able to figure out which branch of the Arundells the Harrises connect to - again a different branch of the Arundells to that which is of interest to me.
I seem to be a descendant of the Martin MARTIN & Tamsin (ODGER). According to Edward A. Martin's "Stithians Families" books, my line goes through their son: Grenvell/Grenville MARTIN bap. 1690/91 m.

Mary Ann DAWES of Redruth -- in Bere Ferris, Devon. Some of their family moved to Calstock parish, including daughter Mary Ann mentioned in my signature.
