The village stands near the estuary of the Camel 3 miles SSE of Padstow, and 10 WNW of Bodmin r. station; and has a post office designated St. Issey, Cornwall, and fairs on the 1st Monday of June and the 1st Monday of Oct. The parish comprises 4,720 acres of land, and 145 of water. Real property, £5, 864; of which £200 are in quarries. Pop., 756. Houses, 148.

Veins of lead and copper ore were discovered in 1832. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Exeter. Value, £279. Patrons, the Dean and Chapter of Exeter. The church is ancient, and was reported in 1859 as not good. There are chapels for Independents, Wesleyans, and Bryanites.
