Re: GERRANS, Cornwall, Eng
Yes, the name is spelt in a variety of ways including Garrens, Gerrens but they all share one thing in common and that is they all originated in the same area of Cornwall i.e. Gerrans.
I, too, am looking for any Gerrans, in particular William Gerrans -tin miner - who went to US in 1872.I lost track of him after he arrived until he reappeared in Butte, Montana in 1900 as a copper miner. Soon after that he went to South Africa in the gold mines.
Any information would be gratefully received.
