Parish History[edit | edit source]
GERRANS (St. Gurons), a parish, in the union of Truro, W. division of the hundred of Powder and of the county of Cornwall, 4 miles N from St. Mawes. There are places of worship for Independents and Wesleyans. 
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: Portscatho. The church (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.
