Family History

In 1931, 400 Cornish men, women and children attended an annual picnic at Toronto Centre Island. Where are the descendants of these people today? Are they aware of their Cornish heritage? Is your ancestor’s surname listed below?

Do you have questions about your Cornish-Canadian family history? Ask us! Please email us at torontocornish@gmail.com. All queries will be reviewed by our membership, and if a TCA member is able to help he or she may choose to respond directly and offer some initial guidance for your own research. Please be aware that the members offer their time on a strictly volunteer basis, and a response is not guaranteed.

If a TCA member is able to assist you, we would appreciate a $25 CDN donation to the Toronto Cornish Association, which will also provide you with a year’s complimentary membership (including our newsletters and full member benefits). ┬áPlease download our membership brochure HERE.
