Sherborne Mercury (1750-1800)
There are just 50 issues of the Sherborne Mercury between 1750 and 1800 online. Although a Dorset newspaper invaluable articles/adverts relating to CORNWALL appear in this newspaper too. There are no other newspapers for this period covering CORNWALL. The Royal Cornwall Gazette, Exeter Flying Post and West Briton are all post 1800 so for pre 1800 more Sherborne issues are needed!
