Veryan

Veryan is a coastal civil parish and a village on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The main settlements are at Veryan Churchtown, Veryan Green, Portloe and the smaller hamlets of Trewartha, Treviskey, Carne and Camels. The parish itself is situated along 1.5 miles of coast with sandy beaches, notably Carne and Pendower.HistoryVeryan was originally mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as the manor of Elerchi (now Elerkey in street names etc.), which name was derived from 'elerch', the Cornish for 'swan'. The origin of the name is by corruption of "Symphorian" to "Severian" and then "Saint Veryan". The church is one of the few in west Cornwall for which there is no evidence of its existence before the Norman Conquest. The church was given by the lord of the manor of Elerky to the monks of Montacute in Somerset, ca. 1110, but a later lord, John de Montacute, gave it to the Dean and Chapter of Exeter, ca. 1220, and they held it until 1859.Veryan is served by one Post Office and a grocery store, Roseland Stores. The village was once served by a traffic warden who manned the Roseland Peninsula. In 2011, he retired but the Cornwall Council refused to hire a new warden and forced the area to be served by CEO's from Truro and Falmouth.In the 19th century Veryan's local vicar and land owner Jeremiah Trist expanded the village's buildings. Aside from convincing his parishioners to attend church on a regular basis, he grew interested in property. He manned the building of two schools and a series of five round houses. He was inspired to build the homes after one was built in St Winnow. Two of the round house cottages, "The Beehive" and "Left Round House", were built alongside one another on an entrance road to the village. Trist installed crosses on each of the houses and they were said to deter the devil from entering the village.
