Extracts from Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1877):

SHEVIOCK, a parish, with S. village and Crafthole hamlet, in St. Germans district, Cornwall; on the coast, 2 miles SE of St. Germans r. station. It has a post-office under Devonport. Acres, 2,282; of which 345 are water. Real property, £3,109. Pop. in 1851, 573; in 1861, 671. Houses, 122. The increase of pop. arose from the temporary presence of labourers in the erection of forts. The property is divided among a few. Trethill was the seat of the navigator Wallis. A pier is at Wrinkle cove; and pilchard fishing is carried on. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Exeter. Value, £350. Patron, W. H. Pole Carew, Esq. The chancel of the church was restored and embellished in 1851, and has a tower and spire. There are a Wesleyan chapel, and a Church school.
