William Newton Gynn came to North Hill around 1880. He was born in the Launceston area and married his wife Sarah Cundy West in St Thomas by Launceston in 1866. The family were photographed outside their Lynher Farmhouse home on the occasion of his parents 50th wedding anniversary in March 1891.

Shown below are the photograph, a key to those on the image, the family tree and the 1891 census return made just a few days later. The photo and key have been kindly supplied by Chris Gynn of Saltash.


The image shows William Newton Gynn (1841-1812) superimposed on a map of Lynher Farm taken from the 1840 Tithe Map.
