families in the fishing industry

During the late 1800s, most Cornish families depended on the fishing industry for their livelihood. 

As well as searchable databases, the archive holds records of almost all families associated with the fishing industry through the decades.

We have a specialist team which can research your family history and trace relatives who worked in the industry.

Coupled with  vast collection of photographs, you can be assured there will be a trace of your family members contained at St. Ives Archive.
