Who’s that girl?

Hundreds of people have lived and worked at Lanhydrock over the centuries it has been standing. We've done lots of research to find out more about the many people who worked here, especially in the late-Victorian period, but there are several characters we'd love to know more about.

If you've got an ancestor who worked here or have a Pethick, Temlett, Richards, Hearne, Odgers, Bartlett, Lee, or Candy in your family tree, maybe you could help us fit some pieces into our geneological jigsaw puzzle.
