Henwood Hamlet in Cornwall

David gives me new information about the community of Henwood in Cornwall that I've been calling a village.

What came first - the place name HENWOOD or the surname HENWOOD? I don't know. Also strictly HENWOOD is a hamlet not a village. There is no Church there - it is in the parish of Linkinhorne so baptisms, marriages and funerals take place there. My branch of HENWOOD moved to Linkinhorne circa 1815 and a cousin still lives there now. Have you any knowledge of how long the place has been there? In its "heyday" - mid/late 1800's it would have been home to miners.

Perhaps some other researchers can answer this question.
