(St.) Stithians

Ancient authorities claim the parish is dedicated to St Stithian, St Stedian or St Stedianus who, some assure us, was a woman.

The parish was not specifically mentioned in "Domesday" (1086). In 1268 we have "Ecclesie Sancte Stethyane", 1291; "Ecclesie Sancte Stediane",1421; "Stythiane", 1733; "Stedians, or Stythians". No famous battles occurred in Stithians, no gory murder mysteries, no particularly famous people originated from within its boundaries. It was just a place to work and raise a family.

It is now, as it has always been, primarily concerned with agriculture, however, during the days when Cornish copper was king the majority of residents were miners who commuted to the workings in nearby parishes. Like most Cornish parishes the collapse of the copper industry (1840-1860) caused its sons and daughters to be dispersed around the globe where their descendants remain today.

Trafalgar Square, Stitians - Then


I and my fellow Cornwall Online Parish Clerks volunteer our time and experience to assist family researchers in tracing their roots back to their home parishes and to inform them of how their antecedants lived. Feel free to visit our website and drop us a line.

Trafalgar Square, Stitians - Now

Additional source material online includes 1522 Survey, 1569 Muster, Lay subsidies, 1641 Protestation Return etc. I have other offline source material.

Priorities for 2014:  There isn't much left that can be done with this Parish as far as transcribing material that is not already available through other sources.
