Dolly Pentreaths memorial, St Pol de Leon churchyard, Paul, Cornwall. Early 1900s

A view of Dolly Pentreaths memorial set in the wall of Paul churchyard. Dolly Pentreaths main language was Cornish and she only learned a little English as an adult. She is considered by many people to be the last person to speak Cornish fluently as a first language, although this is contested by some. She died in 1777 and was buried at Paul where, in June 1860, a monument in her honour was set into the churchyard wall by Prince Louis Lucien Bonaparte, a nephew of Napoleon, and by Reverend John Carbett, the Vicar of Paul of the time. Photographer: Samuel John Govier
