Please note that all ages and dates of birth in red have been calculated and are probably not on the monument.
The calculated dates of birth should be treated with caution as in many cases it can be one year out.
The calculated dates of birth should also be treated with caution as the ages given on monuments are often inaccurate.
The names above are all the names that are listed on the grave monument. It is most likely that only the entries with dates and ages are interred in the grave.
Reasons why the image for this monument was requested
Richard Esterbrook was my 5G-Uncle, brother to my ancestor Jane Esterbrook.
I didn't offer to help, as I'm in the Boston, USA area, but if there's someway I can assist from here, I would be happy to help. Please let me know!
I am in the USA and will be visiting Liskeard in July and wanted to visit the burial place of any Esterbrook family members. I am a collector of his grandson's fountain pens and a Friend (who's actually a Quaker) and I tried to find the cemetery last year without success. We will endeavour to do so once more. Thank you for your time spent on this project. I was quite unaware that such a site existed until I 'googled' "quaker cemeteries in Liskeard, cornwall, uk". Is there not some way to compensate you for your efforts?
Also, would there be any chance of meeting you whilst we are there to glean any additional information you may have? I see no reason not to share at least tea after crossing an ocean for the visit....haha!
Again, thank you in advance. You have already been a great help in putting up this resource on the internet. Hope to meet or speak with you again at some point.
I am an amateur researcher on the history of the steel pen industry in the US and this Richard Esterbrook’s son was a pioneer in the field. I am gathering as much information about the family as I can. You can see my research here. https://thesteelpen.com/ I have also published two articles with the Birmingham Pen Museum on the links between the US and British Pen industries. Any use of the image would direct folks back to this site and give full credit. I would also like to add the location of the cemetery to my map recording places related to the steel pen industry. Any location information would be most helpful. If you give me a physical address I would be most happy to send a hand-written thank you note. If not, I can, and always do, email as well. Thank you for any help you can give. Sincerely, Andrew
