Falmouth History Archive: The Arwenack Archives - Lost & Found

It is not widely realised that from the 17th century to the mid-20th century a huge collection of unique papers relating to Falmouth's history were stored at the Steward's office at Arwenack Manor. Within living memory, the entire collection was broken up and these irreplaceable items were scattered to the four winds. For the last 12 years Tom Weller has been trying to track down the missing estate papers. This is a talk about how he went on the search, what he has found and what is still missing.
