Notes for Benjamin Truscott:
For all that follows in this genealogy I am indebted to several people. First, our always inquiring and persistant cousin by marriage Iva Truscott in Creston, B.C. who found the second important source, Jessie Evans of New Zealand who researched the Truscotts in the best possible sources and wrote a book, "The Truscotts of Cornwall" and finally Bill Craig who discovered me on the internet while he was researching his wife's Truscott history and who has devoted a great deal of time and energy to help us correct errors we and Jessie have made. He led us to a different branch of our family while we were all trying to figure out which Walter Hicks Truscott was ours. He gives a great deal of time to going to the source in British Government and Cornish County documents.
In the genealogy that follows there are difficulties with such things as dates of birth as these were seldom recorded. It was the parish records where such things were noted and they were generally recorded as christenings.
I have included extracts from Wills to give some idea of the social and family structure of their time.
