An Index to the Historical Place Names of Cornwall: Vol 1 - A to K
This two volume reference work features almost 24,000 entries on over 900 pages, and is the printed version of Chris Bond's popular online version of the index. The index has been compiled from a wide variety of manuscript sources including deeds, leases, manorial surveys, tithe apportionments, maps, plans, mining documents and parish registers, as well as from a host of published texts and includes nearly all entries from Symons' Gazetteer of 1884. Each entry is fully referenced and the book includes a bibliography, a glossary and a selection of Cornish place name elements. This is an invaluable source for students of the Cornish language, as well as for those researching local or family history in Cornwall.
