In the Subsidy Roll of 45 Edward III., printed in Lord de Dunstanville's edition of Carew's Survey, from a record in the Tower, and carefully collated with the original, is a list of the Cornish parishes, divided into hundreds. From the very inaccurate spelling in this record, it is difficult to make out several of the names of parishes, so as to appropriate them to existing names; one or two could not be ascertained; as, St. Silian, in the hundred of Penwith, and St. Bodemny, in that of Kirrier. St. Issey in this roll is called St. Ide (see the account of that parish); Mawgan in Pyder, Lanherne; Tintagel, Bossiney. By Briggenok, in the hundred of Stratton, probably is meant Bridgerule: Resprin and St. Eye or St. Day are described as parishes.

The church of Eglossant was given to St. James's hospital in Bristol temp. Hen. II. (fn. n1) The advowson of Wyrswold (which appears to have been in Meneage) is described as having belonged to the Carminows (fn. n2). The church of Norton, with West-Orchard, in the county of Cornwall, is described as belonging to the abbey of Newham (fn. n3) : we find no other mention of such parishes. There is West-Orchard in Dorsetshire, but it is an appendage to the church of Fontmell-Magna in that county.

The free chapel of La Mayne, in Cornwall, was granted to Edward Bostock, 5 Jac. The hermitage of Pont-Baldwin, in Cornwall, was given by Robert de Cardinham to the priory of Tywardreth. (fn. n4)
