Table 14 from the 1881 Census

Between 1871 and 1881 an important family arrived. These were the Strattons who would produce baby Naomi who was destined to marry William Harvey from table 16. William Stratton was the son of Matthew and Anne Stratton and was baptised at Sancreed in 1847. According to Elaine, cousin Martin's wife, William would go to America for 2 years to work, come back for one year till he had spent all of his money, and then go back again to earn more. In the 1901 census William Stratton was down as a Tin Miner, aged 53 yrs at St Just, Cornwall. Elaine said that Aunt Phyllis had told her Eliza was chopping wood and a piece of wood flew up and hit her in the head. It didn't kill her but she was weakened by the accident and went down hill from there.
