Families covered: Whalesborough of Whalesborough

The following comes from a post in 2010 by 'Cochoit' which may be found here. This appears to have been prepared after serious research. Cochoit uses Walebraus (or Walesbraus, Walebreu, Walesbreu, Walisborough, etc.) rather than Whalesborough for the early generations, and shows that they were of places such as Udnou, Lancarfee, Trerose, etc. (mostly in Cornwall) as well as of Whalesborough (spelt variously) but, for simplicity sake, we keep to Whalesborough of Whalesborough after the first generation.
