Site Notes

Cottage of Chy-an-Kerris lies in the hamlet of Kerris, in the Parish of Paul, west Cornwall. The hamlet now consists of a farm, a disused chapel school and seven cottages. The current (1997) owners, Barry Taylor and Trudi Gurling, are renovating the cottage (Thomas/unpub/1997).

Thomas/unpub/1997: `Cottage is, at earliest, 18th century. It contains numerous local slabs and pillars of granite. There is no field-name in either Cornish (majority) or English on the tenement of Kerris relevant to the ideas of `longstone', `pillar', `inscribed stone', `graves' etc'.
