"Cornish" or "English" Medlins?
Reference the Medlins of Cornwall (the family of Richard I who married Rachel and arrived in America in 1678): Would these Medlins be a Celtic Cornish family, or thoroughly "English"? I know Cornwall was/is fiercely independent, with their own Celtic culture and history apart from England. If we don't know for certain, can we surmise anything, given the time (1500's-1600's) and place (Redruth, Cornwall)? Would appreciate any input. Thanks.
