I am a great great grandson of Ann and Ephraim Boswell. Their granddaughter, Beatrice Maria James, was my grandmother. I was 30 when she died at 93 and heard many anecdotes about Granny Boswell whom my grandmother spent a lot of time with and helped lay out when she died. My grandmother also helped look after her cousin, Unity, and her brothers when their mother died. I would be very interested in hearing from any other descendants of Ann and Ephraim.

I am currently researching witchcraft traditions and practices in Cornwall and will be having an article on Granny Boswell published in the September edition of the magazine Meyn Mamvro. Iīd be interested to hear from Granny Boswellīs descendants if they would like to contact me.

hi - I am Ephraim and Anne Boswells great great grand daughter. I think the person who wrote about Beatrice Maria James is my dad's (Chris Boswell's) third cousin. My dad's father Abraham who was married to Mary Ann was Beatrice's nephew. So Beatrice is your gran and her brother Abraham is my dad's grandad. Elaine - I need help with your parents and your name.

I used to live in Brickkiln Lane and Madonna Kirkland used to babysit me as a child. I was probably 3 or 4 at the time and from my limited memory I remember she was a lovely generous woman. I used to get excited to go there which went against my normal shy personality at the time. She had a huge colour television at the time, the first in the street to own one. And she would switch it on and I'd sit there in awe.
