There is a Penrose Manor House in the county of Porthleven Cornwall England. My ancestors may have been rich, still trying to find out if my lineage are the ones who owned the Manor House. There is also a Penrose Campsite in Porthleven Cornwall England. I am also researching if this land was owned by my ancestors. I also found a Penrose who was a Tax Collector, but again researching if he too is in my lineage. There are several different Benjamin, Robert's etc... Penrose's and when I first began following where my Aunt left off, I went through the wrong Benjamin lineage, had to start all over and figure out which Benjamin was the right lineage. These ancestors couldn't seem to come up with more than a handful of names, and thus researching can get very confusing. I have taken a lot of time researching, and most of my info comes from the Chambers/Mullin Genealogy. The only place I could actually follow what made sense. And, according to this site (WIKI TREE) I am related to the present Queen of England, I can't remember the degrees but it wasn't a real high number. Not real impressed with this info, as I know my ancestors had to have enough money to leave England to get away from the Quote Unquote Royal Family BS. My dad said most of our relatives were from Cornwall, but that some left there and so I am thinking those who are from Yorkshire etc... are the ones who left Cornwall. And Porthleven and Sythney are Counties of Cornwall, and not another City, Village, whatever they call them across the pond.
On another note: Have you ever watched Doc Martin? Wherever Portwein (spelling) is, that is where Doc Martin was filmed. It's somewhere in England. I love that show along with several other British shows.
