Parish History

RAME (St. German), a parish, in the union of St. Germans, S. division of the hundred of East, E. division of Cornwall, 4½ miles (S. S. W.) from Devonport. [1]


Rame (Cornish: Hordh) St Germanus is an Ancient Parish in the county of Cornwall. Other places in the parish included: Causand or Cawsand. Originally Cawsand  was in the parish of Rame, but now has its own church in the village. The neighbouring church at Maker is in the same parish as Rame. Together they are called 'Maker-with-Rame' parish.

The church in the hamlet is dedicated to St. Germanus, the fighting bishop who is supposed to have landed in the neighbourhood when he came to Britain to suppress the Pelagian heresy in 400 A.D. It is all built of rough slate: the present stone building was consecrated in 1259. The slender, un-buttressed tower with its broached spire (an unusual feature in a Cornish church), the north wall and the chancel are all probably of this date, when the church was cruciform in shape. A south aisle was added in the 15th century and the Norman tympanum is a relic of the earlier church building on the site.The church is not supplied by electricity, and is lit by candles.

Maker with Rame, United Parish in the Diocese of Truro is the modern parish name.
