A few observations -
The more I write the less I feel I know, there are several threads in John Ebbott's life which wind together to create an increasingly interesting story, I knew he had been heavily into the Wesleyan Church movement but I hadn't until now realised how much this was part of his Cornish heritage and perhaps mould his actions as he grew older.
This got me pondering about the evolution of religion in John's family
John’s great grandparents John Ebbott & Wilmot Baker
