I am daft, and I need new glasses - I'm short-sighted. I was mistaken yesterday. I walked past the church house again this morning. Year 1862 isn't on the church house cross - it's the year 1842! That is twenty years earlier. Is that year significant? Most certainly. Many National Schools were founded to promote religious education. And from the same year it was against the law for all women and girls, and boys younger than 10 years old, to work underground in mines. But in Cornwall women and girls didn't work underground anyway - that was considered unlucky. The girls and boys could go to the National School by the church. The 1841 census shows several children in Bolingey. Perhaps they went to the new school. Did they walk past our lane to school? Were the same flowers and ferns growing in the hedges?
