My Motherís maiden name was Barnicoat, and this is where I started my research. It was relatively easy to locate her ancestors as far back as the mid 1750ís as most
of them stayed in and around the Tregony area. My surname, Grigg, by the way does not come from the Tregony area, all my Fatherís forebears were granite quarrying
folk from the Mabe and Constantine areas of West Cornwall, but thatís another story.
