Piece: RG9/1532 Place: Liskeard -Cornwall Enumeration District: 1
Civil Parish: Boconnoc Ecclesiastical Parish: -
Folio: 7 Page: 10 Schedule: 39

I'd like a look up please for Thomas in 1871.

There are several possible deaths after 1861 including:

Deaths Sep 1876
CLEAVE Thomas 76 St. Columb 5c 65

It looks as though the Thomas in St Columb is a different one - not born St. Kew:
3,Trevanion,1,Tho's Cleave,Head,M,71,,Lndwnr & Fmr 256a Emp 5m & 1b,St Breock Cornwall,,

I looked in 1871—Transcript of Piece RG10/2244 - Enumeration District 1
Civil Parish of Boconnoc and he is not there.

This one but not the right area either - no burial record on FS:

Deaths Jun 1861
Cleave Thomas St.Columb 5c 70

I also looked in /4 Egloshayle - RG10/2251 - ED 1-5 St. Kew and he is not there.

hi Dave,

I've had a look but can only find the same one as you, the farmer and landowner born St Breock and living in St Columb.

Thanks Emeltee and thanks Jay.

So I had better to try and prove this is not the one:

Deaths Jun 1861
Cleave Thomas St.Columb 5c 70

and that will leave me with no death reg.

Can the butcher be found in 1871?

Hello Emeltee,
