William Teague , who had started life as a working miner at the age of eleven, progressed to be an under-captain and eventually a mine captain. He made a fortune in Tincroft and Came Brea mines and subsequently became connected with the Penvoll Smelting Company, which was another profitable venture. According to R. Symons' "Gazetteer of Cornwall" published in 1884, "he exibited a singular tenacity for mining. He was a legitimate miner, no dealer."
