Old postcard view of Poughill Village
Extracts from Post Office Directory of 1856:
Poughill is a parish and small agricultural village in the Hundred and Union of Stratton, East Cornwall, and situated about 2 miles from that town. The church is a very ancient stone building, in the perpendicular style, with a handsome square tower surrounded by pinnacles, and has 5 bells; it is supposed to have been erected in the early part of the sixteenth century, as the registers go back as far as 1537; but all trace of its dedication is lost, although by some ascribed to St Olave. A daughter of the famous Colonel Hacket is said to have been buried here. A house and lands were granted to the poor of this parish by Henry VIII.
