Default Re: Seeking a Cornish Dealer from the past

Thanks Tony,

Unfortunately I haven't been able to identify Michael Scott's father (if he was the London area owner) and Scott is just too common a name. Searching Ancestry I can find quite a few Michael Scotts in Cornwall of about the right age but I couldn't find a father who had lived in London.

If my wife's memory of Michael Scott receiving the set from his father is a myth then the other possible London owner might be the gentleman who Mike remembers as having sold a similar set in the late 1970s to a dealer in Redruth (Mr Delves). Although Mr Delves is dead, Lawrence suggested a Facebook route to make contact with the Delves family. Whilst I have made contact with his daughter and she will contact other family members this route has also drawn a blank so far.

Peter
