Cornish Bards of Australia and New Zealand


Cornish men and women settled in many parts of the world, often leaving Cornwall when work in the Cornish mines was difficult to find and mining skills were in demand in Australia, South Africa, California and elsewhere.  These settlers were proud of their ancestry and their families grew up learning about Cornish history, culture and heritage, At the time of writing of this book there were 50 bards living in Australia and New Zealand. There are also 37 deceased bards, so the book records the biographies of 87 bards.

This is the seventh book in a planned series.
