Harold Burnett and the sisters
Digging for more information on the later generations of the Burnett family that lived in Seveock area of Cornwall turns out to be more difficult than I thought it would. Finding the marriages of the children is difficult. Found one son of John Thomas Burnett died in his twenties and possibly a daughter that did too.
But I decided to check google for more clues and one important clue came up on a German Website "Spiegel Online Science" which is in German language. This page was mentioning about the Saveock Water Archeological site.
And in it, it mentioned Harold Burnett and then it mentioned about the nieces the sisters.
In my research Harold Burnett was a grandson of John Thomas Burnett and I have him living with John T. Burnett in the 1901 and 1911 censuses of Green Bottom (less than a mile from Saveock).
The odd thing is the website does mentioned that he died in 1945 but I didn't find any deaths of his except for a couple one I think in the 1980's Redruth area of Cornwall. Also it mentioned that Harold Burnett never married. But there is one or marriages of a Harold Burnett in the area but need to check on them. It could be that he was a widower for a long time.
The article went on to say that the sisters were living in primative conditions. Which probably mean they lived off the land.
Which in turn would explain why no telephone records of them. They probably didn't have one.

I believe that Jacqui Wood left the name Harold Burnett off the website because she probably fear them a little. But Germany is far away so they felt okay mentioning his name.
