Hi
Does anyone out there know how I can find out anything about the people involved historically with this mine? Its a bit of a long shot, but I need to get back to the late 1600s, in particular regarding Nicholas Worth b. circa 1655. His name is connected with John Shillabeer, they may have been partners. I would greatly appreciate any pointers towards books or websites that might have this info.

Hello: I take it you're the same person who contacted the DTRG in relation with the same request. If this is correct, then please phone me - number in DTRG newsletter under Chairman, or contact me through the DTRG website with a number or email that I can contact you on.

Regards DTRG Chairman (Tin Miner)

Hi Carol.

Took a look at your request to the DTRG, and can tell you that all Mike Brown's material is now in the Public Records Office, Plymouth. The only drawback is that in nearly all cases with Mike's material is that you need his prior written permission to view his material. Mike gave up his research work.

If I can be of any assistance then contact me as in the above posting.

Regards Tin Miner

Hi

Thank you for replying to my query. Are you Dr Bob Bruce who sent me the newsletters? I've had a look at them and couldn't find any contact details. Please contact me at caw60@admin.cam.ac.uk. Thanks.

Regards
