He was 25 and the son of James and Patricia M. Jenkin of 22 Wilberforce Avenue, Rose Bay, New South Wales.

St Day (Cornish: Sen Day) is a civil parish and village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is situated between the village of Chacewater and the town of Redruth.

St Day is located in a former mining area (which included Poldice, Tolcarne, Todpool, Creegbrawse and Crofthandy) and accrued considerable wealth from mining. The parish is at the heart of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape, a World Heritage Site that includes St Agnes, Chapel Porth and Porthtowan.

St Day was a centre for the richest and perhaps most famous copper mining district in the world from the 16th century to the 1830s
