Thanks to everyone who has contributed
information. Much of the research on the earlier generations was done by
my second cousin Edward Perry of Par, Cornwall. My grandfather Hubert Perry died
in 1950 so I never knew him. His sister, my great Aunt Ivy Rundle (nee Perry)
provided oral history as did a number of cousins.
I welcome contact from anyone
connected with my family.
