Site Notes

Penzance is now a town of some importance and size. Macalister/1949, 180, and Okasha/1993, 195, both state that the earliest known spot where the cross is known to have been (prior to 1829) is the Green Market, Penzance.

Thomas/1994, 300: `The cross may have been put up at (c. 1050 ?) at a cemetery of St Clare's on the west side of Penzance'.

Thomas/Thorpe/1998, 2: `obviously commissioned and designed to mark a burial-ground in the Alverton district of Penzance'.
