  1. Hello Derek, As you may well know already, William Tresidder was a serious botanist, who made many contributions to F.H. Davey’s 1909 ‘Flora of Cornwall’. I collect archive on the history of botanical research in Cornwall and would love to have any portraits of him if that was possible. With thanks for putting ‘The Day School Goonhavern’ photograph online. With best wishes, Keith

    1. Evening Keith, William Tresidder was certainly active, a Cornish Bard, and a Headmaster for 40 yrs here. I don’t have any photographs of him unfortunately, only these school photos he is in. His daughter married my grannies brother.

  2. I would love to know who has these photos and where they came from. My great grandfather and two of his five daughters

    1. Ann, I have copies of the photos, one was from Harold Philp who lives locally and has connections with the school and our Old Cornwall Society at Goonhavern & Perranporth. The other was in our archives.
