THE JASPER FAMILIES

There are families with the surname Jasper across the length of Cornwall. One family of that name have lived in North Hill since the late 1600s. Almost all of the Jaspers in the parish from that time and for the next 200 years were the descendants of Thomas and Anne Jasper who died and were buried in St Torney’s churchyard in the early 1700s. To see the family tree of Thomas and Anne’s descendants, click here. To see a report of the same family showing the evidence for the family relationships, click here.

Three military men named Jasper with North Hill connections died in World War One; all of these men were descended from families with origins outside North Hill but in nearby parishes:

·       Ernest Albert Jasper (1893-1917) (external site)

·       Frank Jasper (1893-1917)

·       John Jasper (1889-1918)
