|My name is Robert Howard Hocking,
call me Bob. I am a retired school teacher and presently
work as a marriage commissioner for the British Columbia
Ministry of Health-Vital Statistics Agency. I live in
Chilliwack which is in British Columbia's Fraser Valley
about 65 miles from Vancouver.
My father and ancestors lived in and around Redruth. I am trying to gain some understanding of my Cornish ancestry and their culture. I can trace my pedigree back to Richard HOCKIN b.1799 in St.Austell m. Elizabeth WERRY. Click on the icon to view the tree But I don't have much flesh to put around the skeletons.
to have started off in St. Austell but moved to Bodmin,
then Otterham, then Bodmin, then Redruth, and who knows
where-else in between. My grandfather's mother Mary Ruse
SANDERS came from Cardinham. I suspect RUSE
of me in a Merlin costume was taken after I officiated at
a Medieval wedding a couple of years ago.
