Look forward to learning how to use the site,

The Straughairs came from County Durham, While The Juliff(e) Juleff surname is based around Cornwall.

Where in Cornwall were your Juliffs from? I have some information on one branch of the Juleffs/Juliffs from St Austell. An Emily Juleff married into my A'Lee family.
Polperro also has very many Joliff(e)s/Juliffs

Hi My Juliff's came from Ladock and Probus in Cornwall, all the Juliff?juleff's I have found seem to be cooected to onanother in some way, I resently met up with some Juleff's in Australia, There line seems to be based around Redruth, But when we compared some family photo's we found some strong family likness's between them, My 3* Great Grandfather died in a mining accident in Ladock in June of 1840 his son William was baptised on the day of his father funeral, William my 2* greatgrand father moved to the coal fields of South Wales.
I would post the Juleff enquiries in the Cornwall section of the forum - I have a number of Juiff/Juleffs in my own tree as well as those in the St Enoder website. An Edith Emily Juleff married one of my Trenerry ancestors and went to the USA. Also an Eliza Jane Juleff from Truro who married Ralph Dunstan (the composer/musician).
As you probably know, Ladock is next to the parish of St Enoder as is Probus. I am situated quite close to those two villages and can happily take a trip if you know of any ancestors buried there and would like details from any headstones etc.

Thanks for the offer, yes I do know the area and hve made a couple of trips down there.
I am based in Halifax in West Yorkshire. You mention a Juliff who married a composer would you have any more details, I ask because I have a old 78 record by a guy called John Harrison called "I dremt of you" composed by a Juleff.
I also have a strang baptism for a Juliff family who were discribed in the records as bringers of music,
Regards Gareth Juliff

Yes, the lady called Eliza Jane Juleff was from "Truro" - which is a fairly large catchement area!
She married Ralph Dunstan, who was the main author of Cornish Language music later on, but earlier in his life I believe he was involved in music for the Royal Family. There are several mentions of his writings in search engines, but the most famous one down here is
Lyver Canow Kernewek (A Cornish Songbook).
There is a very small article on him at -
I have no idea if Eliza Janes family were also musical - which may have been a link to Ralph of course! I have not researched her family as yet.
My connection is with the Dunstans really, but the Juleffs do seem to crop up in various places quite often - as I mentioned, we have a fair few here in the Mid-Cornwall area.
