A Brief History

A translation of the Cornish name, Tregear Vean, indicates that there has been a settlement at this location for many hundreds of years. 'Tregear' means homestead of the fort and 'Vean' means small or probably outlying in this context. Therefore 'Outlying Homestead of the Fort' seems to be a fair interpretation. The great manor of Tregear was, from very early times, the most important estate in the area, comprising most of the Roseland Peninsula and beyond, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1085. The whole fascinating history of the district can be read in Laurence O' Toole's book 'The ROSELAND between River and Sea'.
