In the recently uploaded article about 15 Fore Street  Gill Parsons made a reference to Joseph Burnett, Lostwithiel's Peace Officer  and Town Sergeant, who was fatally shot in Fore St on the 21st August 1814, over 200 yrs ago. If you want to know more about Joseph Burnett please visit the museum where you will see his cloak displayed in the cabinet on the left-hand side towards the back of the first room. The Joseph Burnett story is also available to purchase from the Museum.
