Mann Family

Mann from the Penzance Parish of Cornwall


Mousehole Harbour c1925

The Mann families that resided in the parishes of Mousehole Newlyn & Paul Cornwall in the 1700-1800+.

A lot of the Mann's from the area were engaged in the fishing industary, as can be seen from the 1851 census - being Captains of boats and just ordinary fishermen. Today, this is sadly not the case. Many Mann's and desendants moved away from the area, some emigrateing to Australia New Zealand & USA. Many moved from their trade and their happy life on the sea.

Some of the boats mentioned in the 'Mann' entries in 1851 census:-

Edwin Mann born 1825 (wife Elizabeth Trewavas) in 1851 was part owner of the boat Triton (Mousehole)

Charles Mann born 1823 (wife Ann Richards) in 1851 was captain & fisherman of boat 27 Jason. (Mousehole). He became Habour Master in his later life.
