Maggie Penny Currently looking at family history and found this page. Researching the Crapp family who lived at 4 Homer Park, St. Stephens until 1922 when they set sail for Melbourne with their daughter. From the ship's sailing records I know he was a market gardener. Amazing where family research takes you. I have lived in Reading all my life. Feeling a trip to Saltash coming on and hope to find some local area maps/photos from the 1920s. Thanks for a place to share and reading my comment. Maggie 11/5/19

Peter John Smith Hello everyone. My grandfather and grandmother Frank and Ethel Hoy, son Douglas, daughters Gladys and Zilla (Madge) lived at what was 8 Hamoaze Tce, now known as something else. My mother was Gladys and I was born at Pentillie Castle in 1942. I spent most of my early life in Truro, before art school in London, but still hold Saltash with great warmth and always drive through the Main Street whenever crossing the bridge, then I know I'm "home". See my cousin Judith Archer has left a note and contact to Stu Hoy another "Cousin Jack". 27/12/18
Jonathan Coles Nipped across the bridge today from Plymouth. Had a walk around Fore Street with my parents, bought some local items from the Butchers, Card shop and Pet shop. Always pleasant to shop in Saltash, not as rushed as in the city, and pleasant views across the Tamar and surrounding area when walking back across the Bridge. Shame that the little bakery that used to be near TOFFS has shut but at least there is a Rowes still there. 4/12/18
Jenny Moir I am looking for a Joan Kinsey who I believe lived at 117 Fore Street, Saltash, around 1949. I would be interested in any information on Joan or the Kinsey family.

Dave Bance Ref Jubilee Green Pontoon.. we wish to comment on the vastly improved facilities at the pontoon. When we have previously used it we have encountered a number of problems.. firstly there were inevitably one or more vessels alongside the pontoon unattended and which appeared to have been left there for some time leaving limited access at the emergency service end, secondly there were almost always a number of anglers on the pontoon which caused at best difficulty in manoeuvring alongside and tying up and at worst threatening and aggressive attitude combined with the mess and dangers of slippery bait and discarded hooks and lines. We now find that the pontoon is clean and tidy, free from unattended vessels so that it can be used safely, and most importantly extremely helpful and courteous waterside wardens, who are to be congratulated on their stewardship of the facilities. Please ensure that our comments are passed onto them. Our boat is moored locally and we can now safely use the pontoon to receive visitors. Thank you and we look forward to using the pontoon again and enjoying any additional facilities that you may eventually be in a position to provide, for example fresh water? 31/7/18

Alec Kendall Well, Keith Cozens, if you're still visiting this site - here I am! Of course I remember you well, and the glorious summers of our Sixth Form career at SGS. I left for Teacher Training at Margaret McMillan in Bradford, and retired after a 21 year career in Public Health in the NHS in 2009. I now live in Worcestershire but maintain very strong ties with East Cornwall and Liskeard in particular. 12/2/17
Clive Thornborough My parents took up the position of cook and butler at Pentillie Castle, St. Mellion in 1948 and as a youngster I remember seeing Princess Margeret open the second Saltash / St. Budeaux ferry crossing.

Hugh Colton Hi Stu - Yes I well remember you and your Dad who was very active in the St John Ambulance brigade with my Mum who was the female cadet leader.

If I recall you were a year above me @school!Hello!!! to all who might remember during my early years in Saltash....Stu Hoy 16/6/16
Hugh Colton I'm impressed at the town website, and I recognise many of the names of folks who have posted to the visitors' book. It's 50 years since I left Saltash. I attended the infants, junior and grammar schools. In the intervening years I've lived and worked in over 30 countries and nowadays divide my time mostly between the USA and New Zealand. As I reduce my working hours I'm able to spend more time on my hobbies of flying and cycling. My Father was active in politics and the Heritage Centre. Until his death two years ago I talked to him everyday from wherever I was in the World. The wonders of the Internet! He kept me up to date with activities in the town. I just watched Angela Rippon on BBC1 recalling her memories of 1966, and the exhibition that she has in Plymouth. This brought back so many memories. However I'm beginning to lose touch with with what's happening in the town. Hopefully the Saltash website will help to fill that gap. 1/6/16
Pete Hodge Just returned from another visit to Saltash. English beer & Cornish pasties still great! I had to deviate from my heart smart diet again! For those who remember; the cellar still exists with the paint on the walls & the beer mats & matchboxes on the beams. You can almost hear the echoes of the parties that took place there. Pete. 26/5/16

Tony Steed Hi Mike Dure, great to hear from you [memories of you dating Pauline D back then]- bumped into her once or twice over the years. I met up with Stu Hoy a couple of years ago when I visited my cousins in Cannock. We had a couple of beers and a natter which was great. Have also met Bernie Stewart a few times in more recent years watching and officiating at Callington FC. Not changed a bit. Phil Honey still lives locally I believe but not seen him since I refereed his son some 15 years or so ago and Farmer Coe lives and works in Liskeard. As you say it would be great to have a get together. 18/3/14

Must try and contact the likes of Phil Honey, Bernie Stewart, Mike Sullivan, Dave & Mike Wilkinson,Tony Coe,Dave Pinkham and as many of the lads as we can remember. Have made contact with Stu Hoy,which is a start, lets keep it going, if we can,I have lost touch with everyone, keep in touch. 14/3/14
Tony Steed Have looked at this site on numerous occasions, thought it about time I said hello to some old friends/family/acquaintances. Lived in Saltash for the first 51 years of my life, still fairly local now!! Hi to old Wesley Youth club and football mates - Mike Dure, Pete Hodge, Gerry Bloomfield [those early evening snooker sessions come to mind] Stu Hoy [also a neighbour, the chords of Green Green Grass of home on Sunday mornings still ring in my ears 'S' Barry Buckingham. Schoolfriends - Cliff Tomaszewski, Vanessa 'Telfer'. Also a quick hello to Roy Harris [Boy Scout days I think]Tony Cole and Julian Chenery [football contact] Ken Speare [of Co-Op fame!]Chris Batters [who I bumped into in mysterious circumstances on a train out of Bodmin some 4 years ago]and Gordon Harvey [Stu Hoys cousin I believe]who I remember 'between the sticks' for local football sides. Picking up on some previous posts which indicate we are related distantly, - Mike Angrove, your relation in St Stephens road was my Aunty Gert, a sister of my grandmother Lilian Steed. I lost touch with descendent cousins Raymond, Malcolm and Derek Chubb [great guys]some years ago now. Rosalind Sparkes, Yes, us Steeds were in Saltash from way back, my Grandad George, on and off during the 1900,s and my family certainly from the 1940's onwards. My Father [Godfrey]ran his plumbing/carpentry business from the rear of Percy King's shop in Fore Street in my early years. Ian Denton hi there, you will no doubt remember that Mum, Dad and myself also used to live within 40, Callington Rd in my early years. Memories!! how is brother Mike these days. Better stop, could go on forever but have to agree with previous posts that this is a great site which gives us all the chance to jog a memory or two 11/3/14
Mike Dure Hi all,especially Stu Hoy.I so remember you well all those years ago, always thought what a nice person you were,mister smooth !! I also remember your Dad working for Sweb at the top of town. Unfortunately I lost my Mum in 2012 , so don' t get down as often nowadays. I moved away to Honiton 28 years ago with BT , we have a Son & Daughter , both married but no grandchildren as yet, we will be too old in a minute. I find it very strange that when you consider all the people we knew back when, there is no contact now,I was so surprised to see your name, perhaps we can have a drink in the future, take care of yourself. 8/3/14

Marie Leonard I am doing research on my mother's family. We are decendants of the Grenfell's from Cornwall. Her great uncle, Dr. Henry Osbourne Grenfell was once mayor of Saltash and lived there with his family for many years in a home called "Tegresol". Her grandfather was Frederick William Grenfell who left England for the United States after a family dispute. From letters to our family it appears their home was in town very near the railroad station. Dr Grenfell had three sons, Eric, Eustace and Warwick. His daughter Audrey was his caregiver later in live and lived with him at Tegresol throughout the war. If anyone has information on our Grenfells I would be so very grateful. My husband and I are traveling back to England from the States this summer and will again visit Saltash for further 25/5/12

Well done the 'workies'! 17/11/10

We organise a wide range of social events in and around the local area. We do a lot of good work to help people find friends and make more of their lives. The idea is to provide a ready-made 'group of friends' that anyone can join in and go out with. In a civilisied society, there should be no need for anyone to be lonely.

Over the years, we have helped thousands of local people find friends and enjoy a better social life. Meet new people, make new friends, and enjoy a great social life! The idea is to have fun, get people out of the house, and enable people to improve their social skills, network, and gain in confidence.

Bryan Lane I would like to contact people who knew my Great Uncle Harold Watters who lived at 28 Fore Street, I can confirm that my latest information on that address through Bruce Hunts book Aspects of Saltash shows that in 1959 it was a shop with presumably a flat over it. The shop was that of D Rosson Hairdresser. I can confirm that the said Harold Watters died in 1978 but there are two others, another Harold and an Elsie Watters at the address as confirmed by the records office at Truro. My only picture of Him is in a group photograph taken of the crew of the Mine sweeper H.M.S. Circe during the first world war and in the small group I wouldn't know which one is Him anyway. Living as I do between Portsmouth and Chichester I have the help of the Naval Museum in the dockyard but of course His time in the navy was but a small part of a long life, (He was 88 when He died). Contact me on 17/4/09
George Caithness Betty My father, Stanley Gordon Betty, was born on April 24th 1907at Callington, joined the R.A.F. at the age of fifteen and served over fifty years in uniform before retiring to the Royal Air Force home in Aboyne, in Aberdeenshire, where he died in 1996. I visited the Saltash area once with him in 1957 where we met some of his relations, but I didn't keep up any communications with them and it would be nice to be able to track down some of them now if it were possible. My relationship to him is that I am his younger son,albeit, now aged 72. Any help would be appreciated. 4/4/09

Rosemary Moreton Just to say that this site is not nearly as pretty or welcoming as the old one which featured a lovely pic of the Bridge; also the Visitors' Book is now less easy to track down. Perish the thought but have we old ex-pats been shuffled off in the interests of "bizness"? 2/3/08

jumil I used to live in the Wheatsheaf during the renovations back in the late 60's ,I always felt uneasy up in the flat especially on the 3rd floor and attic rooms.My bedroom was right at the end of the top floor and was originally a part of a small house that was knocked through into the pub.I often heard footsteps going up and down stairs....only there were no stairs near my room!!!! I was told later that a staircase did come into that room but had been boarded over.No wonder my friends never wanted to sleep over. Any one out there have any history on the Wheatsheaf when it was 1st built or about its previous occupants 'alive or dead', I was told that theBlack Prince used to stay there ,fact or fiction? Fond memories too of Wesley youth club, I played Snow white in one of the pantos,where are the 7 dwarfs now?? 26/8/06

You may like to know that The Tamar Preservation Society is trying to increase interest, both locally and elsewhere, in two fine old properties in Saltash, namely Elliotts stores and Mary Newmans cottage. If you have memories of either that you could share with us and the visitors to these sites, or would like to keep in touch with what we are doing in this part of your past we would like to hear from you. You could drop a line to Elliotts, It should be 27 Lower Fore Street, Saltash, PL12 6JQ or to the e-mail address, - we really need your help to keep these places alive, just by visiting either Elliotts or Marys when you are next here, or asking your friends too, or you could join us as a Friend of the TPS 14/5/05

Best wishes to Saltash and thanks for many wonderful memories of the place 18/12/02

Derek Jago I am tracing my family roots. I have established a direct link to a burial in St Stephens of Ferdinand Jago in 1818.I visited graveyard but failed to locate headstone. I have information which suggests that another ancestor had a premises in Lr Fore St in 1776. Fernando Jago who is obviously also an ancestor was married in St Stephens in 1674. I would appreciate any information to connect the two. Best wishes to all. Derek Jago - Dublin. 29/8/01
Eve Bourne I found this site very interesting and found out things I didn't know. 29/8/01
Gail Russell (nee Ridgway) I visited your website after looking at some old photographs from over 40 years ago! They were taken during a family holiday with my parents and brother and whilst staying in our caravan at Saltash, my older brother and I played daily with 3 children, Roger, Gloria and Howard Hancock(if my memory serves me well). I have a photo of my brother and me with Roger and Gloria and also a couple of photos of their home. How I have such memories after all these years I don't know........I just never forgot them! I wonder if they are still in Saltash and if anyone knows of their whereabouts? 18/8/01
Cindy Thanks to the internet I met my best friend who is a resident of Saltash. Being that I am from the United States, this site is probably the closest I will ever get to being able to see where my closest friend calls home 17/8/01
Ruth An excellent website! Very interesting to look at and read about the plans for the station buildings and the redevelopment at Saltash Waterfront. 21/7/01
Sue Dent (nee A'Lee) It was great to find this website as I am researching my family tree and my grandfather Bill A'Lee was well known around Saltash especially in his role as Town Sergeant until his death in the early eighties. I would love to hear from anyone who has any memories of him or even a picture of him in his regalia for my family records, I know he was photographed for the Cornish Times on several occasions but I do not have any copies. I would love future generations to be able to see their Cornish heritage (unfortunately I am now living outside the County and don't get to visit as often as I would like). 12/7/01
Jean Russell Great to see Saltash on the Net! And what a great site. I'd love to get in touch with anyone who remembers me-- I lived there at the end of the Seventies in Greenfield Road.

Jean Perry I Lived in Saltash in the late seventies, and am seriously thinking of returning to live there in the next year or so. It seems to be changing a lot--is there still a Saltash Town Band? Your site is very informative, evocative and moves and responds very well. It has info about bed and breakfast accommodation which I have been unable to find anywhere else. Well done Saltash!!!!! See you soon. (PS. One more question--I shall be looking for a job in nursing when I come down. Is the local hospital still open, or have they closed it down?) 21/6/01
Alec Kendall What an excellent way to keep in touch for those of us a long way from 'down home'.

Congratulations on a first-class job. 9/6/01

Graeme & Liz Clarke - Bedfordshire My wife, myself and our two Yorkies are visiting for a week (19th onwards, having always gone to Cumbria in the past, never having been to Cornwall before. I entered Saltash by way of curiosity, and found this site. It does not tell you a lot about the area, but it does whet your appetite prior to the visit. One thing it does lack, is walk descriptions. Still, it can be quite interesting just exploring. See you soon, Saltash. 9/5/01
