I am a granddaughter to a Mary Edyvean born in Cornwall, England in 1885. When I was in England in 1991 I spoke with a someone that had some insight to genealogy. He told me that Edyvean was probably not the exaxt name. He said that he thought originally that they were German. With a long story attached. I am not sure what to believe. He said that it was probably Edwin and through the years and the multiple ways of pronouncing it it came up to be Edyvean. My Grandmother was born in (I believe it was called) Mousehole Cornwall, England. My Grandfather who was Robert Edyvean was born in what they called Ragged A-- Corners Cornwall, England. I am just now starting to try to do some reasearch and really have not gotten too far. We reside in the UP of Michigan and have for years. All my Aunts and Uncles were born and raised here as was my family. I know that There are still some realatives in Cornwall but I am not sure of the last name right now. I believe it starts with an N. If you have any questions feel free to email me. Maybe I can learn something too.
