Cornish Earthquakes

With much thanks to http://www.pascalbonenfant.com/18c/geography/earthquakes.html

15 July 1757Penzance, Cornwall, England~4.4Relatively well-documented thanks to a contemporary study by the naturalist William Borlase. It was felt throughout Cornwall and also in the Scilly Isles, but hardly any distance into Devon. There is one report of damage at Mount's Bay from a London paper, but Borlase says there was no damage. The epicentre is hard to judge on account of the narrow shape of Cornwall. Just east of Penzance is the most likely location, but west of Land's End and north of Newquay are other possibilities. ize and epicentre of this event are obscure. It was alarming at Holyhead where things were thrown from shelves, and also felt at other places in Anglesey.
