Surnames of Bodmin Moor

Jodie lampertJodie Lampert is a University of Leicester PhD student researching the male ancestry and surname history of Bodmin Moor. By studying the most frequent and localised surnames that have been in the area since the 1500s, her thesis will ask questions such as: to what extent did Bodmin Moor prevent or foster communication between the people in the surrounding areas? What about between these communities and other parts of Cornwall?

Jodie is looking for males bearing specific surnames and who have local ancestry in the area to help with her study.  As part of her research Jodie will be coming to the area this Autumn to meet up with members of the community
