Ethel - there's a death notice in The Cornishman for a John Wiles who died 13 October 1903 after having been ill for several months with bronchitis. Lived at the Warren.

Is he yours?

Many thanks for all your help. The change in spelling of the name went from Wild/Wilds/Wiles up to 1851 and stayed as Wiles from then on.
I will see if my friend wants to get the certificate for Honor to get Mothers maiden name. Ethel.
