The 17C PENDER family at St Buryan were gentlemen and merchants.At least three generations used the forename Oliver, which also occurs in the 16C in Kilkhampton, North Cornwall, indicating a possible origin of the family there.


The second Oliver had a son Robert who married Alice Walsh from the neighbouring parish of Sennen.One of their sons, John, moved to another nearby parish, Paul.


Paul is the parish for the fishing village of Mousehole, and Johnís daughter Mary, married a Mousehole fisherman, John BLUETT at Paul in 1786

1)     The trees have been constructed using data from transcripts of the registers of Paul, St Buryan and Sennen.These should be checked against the original registers


2)     The PENDERs of St Buryan were gentlemen and merchants.It is very probable therefore that they made wills.These have not yet been seen as they are not currently available from the Cornwall RO.Examination of any such wills should have a significant effect in the accuracy or reliability of the family trees
