Extract from Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870-72):

ENDELLION, or St. Endellion, a parish in Bodmin district, Cornwall; on the coast, 4z miles N by E of Wadebridge, and 13 NW of Bodmin Road r. Station.

It contains Port Quin; and its post town is Wadebridge, Cornwall. Acres, 3,729. Real property, £5,059. Pop., 1,192. Houses, 281.

The property is subdivided. Roscarrock House, formerly the seat of the ancient family of Roscarrock, stands on a hill, is now a ruin, was castellated and loop-holed, had a massive granite archway entrance, and retains much of a formidable aspect.

Slate quartz, mandelstone, copper ore, lead ore, manganese, and antimony are found; an export trade in slates and pilchards is carried on; and a fair is held on 12 Sept.
