St. Gluvias Church Records

The parish church was dedicated July 25, 1318 to St. Gluvias, the martyr. Gluvias was a Welshman on a mission to his fellow Celts in the sixth century. It is presumed that after his death his converts raised a wooden structure over his grave. His feast day is May 3rd.

No poor law documents have survived for this parish.

St. Gluvias fees in 1826.
