May be a longshot, but can anyone supply a link to on old map of Cornwall - maybe showing shipwreck sites / smuggler locations / pirate activity? Could err towards the fantasy side, rather than factual. For example, Dragons may not have been located as marked.
I'd want to print it eventually, for private use.

Cheers me Hearties!

I have made a couple of old-style maps of the area myself (see my avatar :) ), but no pirate info, just modern day cities and such. There are a number of county maps, from Christopher Saxton and John Speed of the late 16th/early 17th centuries, through the ages up to more recent maps, that might be suitable as base maps. I am not aware of any that pertain to piratical activities and locations. You might have to add that in yourself.
If you do find or make one I'd be interested in seeing it. :)

Perhaps it would be a good idea to ask this on the maphist mailing list:
