I've come across a will about 1819 for Benjamin Tucker of Trematon castle in Saltash. He leaves his Portreath Tin smelting company to his son. BT was a director of the Cornwall Copper Company, surveyor general for the Duchy and married to Fred Williams daughter of Scorrier.
Does this mean anything to anybody?
