St. Mawgan in Pydar

Researching the history and families of St.. Mawgan in Pydar.

St. Mawgan, a classic English Village, is nestled round the Church and Lanherne Convent. Lanherne was the seat of the Roman Catholic Arundel family who also had close ties to St Columb Major. There were chapels for the Wesleyan Methodists in the Churchtown and at Mawgan Cross, where the Bible Christians also had a chapel.

The parish is bounded by the sea on one side and by St Eval, St Ervan, St Columb Major and St Columb Minor on the others. There is a thriving Parish History Group, headed by Bill Rowe, which is compiling a Photographic Archive. This is, and has always been, a farming parish, but it is also home to RAF St Mawgan, and the civil airport for Cornwall .
