MONUMENT NO. 1572493


Site of a chapel of ease documented in 1321, and chantry chapel, first licenced in 1321. The chapel was spared in the Spanish raid of 1595 because the Spanish knew that 'Mass had been celebrated in it previously'. The chapel was repaired and enlarged circa 1662-72, and again in 1782, but by 1824 was severely overcrowded. By then serving a parish of circa 7,000, it was still a chapel of ease to Madron, circa 2 miles inland. A separate parish was created in 1871. The Rev. Thomas Vyvyan began the replacement of the old church in 1832, when the old church was largely demolished for the rebuilding on the same site.
