This is a large format booklet published by the auctioneer, Blameys Ltd. of Truro. There should be a map but this was missing in the copy I have seen but thanks to Trevor Thornton of New South Wales, I have a high resolution scan [4MB] of it. Thanks are also due to John Berriman of St. Ives for the source material with additional information from Keith Hollow and Christopher Hogg.

The property was originally part of the Edward Hain estate which his daughter, Mrs. Bullivant, inherited on his death in 1917. It would have gone to his son Edward Hain Jnr. but he was killed in action in Gallipoli in November 1915.
