in New Zealand
Cornish people left their homeland when tin and copper mining went into decline from the late 1800s. They have settled in countries all over the world ever since and continue to do so. There are many people in NZ who can trace their family back to emigrants who came here for a new life. The are some who came here for the same reason not so long ago. There are others who are attracted to Cornwall because of its beauty and culture. We all like to acknowledge that there is something special about Cornwall and its people.
Where are we?
