Once again, you've got us puzzled with a name. Your 'Chengweeth' doesn't
fit with anything we can think of, and doesn't sound Cornish... can anyone
else on the list think what or where this may be? Our map scanning has failed
to come up with a match.
Now to 'Piperville' which - once again, sounds American, but certainly not
Cornish... I'm not aware of any "... ville's" in Cornwall, and in fact, very few in
the United Kingdom (Coalville, in Leicestershire, being the only one that
springs to mind at the moment).
I've searched the whole area around Camborne / Redruth for any Piper
name, but without success, and I've searched the Troon area (where there
now lives a Piper on a farm) but again, without success.
The name may be a house name, not shown on the large scale map, or
(again) someone else on the list may know... Any takers???
