Parish History

St Gerrans is an Ancient Parish in the county of Cornwall. St Anthony in Roseland, Cornwall was a chapelry of St Gerrans.Other places in the parish include: Porthscatho and Porthskatho.
(dedicated to St Gerent or Gerendus) was built in the 13th century and enlarged in the 15th century when the south and aisle and the tower topped with a spire were added. However, in 1849 everything except the tower was rebuilt (by William White of Truro) though this was done as closely as possible to the original church. The two-stage tower is buttressed, battlemented, and topped by a spire

The manor of Tregear belonged to the Bishops of Exeter in mediaeval times and Gerent may have had a castle (Dingerein or Dinurrin) here
