The Duke of Bedford . . . owns most of the parish, and is lord of the manors of Tavistock, Hurdwick, Morwell, Ogbear, Parswell, and Ottery . . . but the manor of Cudlipptown belongs to the Rev. E.A. Bray, . . . The town has now a clean and handsome appearance, and contains several good inns, and many well-stocked shops. . The manufacture of coarse woollens flourished here from an early period, but declined at the end of the last century, and is now nearly obsolete. Mining operations have been carried on in the neighbourhood from time immemorial . . . In the town are two large ironfoundries and engine works. . . . The Church (St. Eustachius) is a large and handsome structure . . . now in the incumbency of the Rev. E.A. Bray, . . .

Family 1: Wymond Richard and Ellen Neale

Wymond Richard 1869 is born in Holborn. His parents move back to Egloskerry - he is the son of Wymond Cory and Susanna Emmeline Cole Mason and the grand son of William and Jane Kittow. In 1900 he marries Ellen Neale in Launceston. She was born in North Petherton(?), Devon in 1873.

At the time of the 1901 census, they are living with Ellen's parents, George (72) and Rebecca (65) Neale at Latchley, Calstock, close to Gunnislake. The Neales are farmers and Wymond is a farm labourer. Son Wymond is 4 months old

It is likely that he runs the farming interests around Lifton, built up by his grandfather and father before him - however his father, Wymond Cory, died in 1900 and Wymond Richard is still labouring for his father in law a year later?
