near to Hessenford, Cornwall, Great Britain

The Parish Church of Saint Anne, Hessenford.
The Parish Church of Saint Anne, Hessenford.
Having passed the church on many occasions it was not until I was researching my family tree and visited the graveyard (on the hill behind)to find buried ancestors (Bray and Carpenter who were farmers),where my quest bore fruition as both families were among the first, and in very prominent positions with excellently preserved headstones.
The church was built by local subscription with labour, material and financial contributions and was dedicated on the 26th September 1833, at that it time was a district chapel of Saint Germans parish, the perpetual curate being appointed by the vicar of Saint Germans however, Hessenford became a parish in its own right by "Order in Council" in 1852. The lych gates were a gift and built in 1905, the original gates being used for the entrance to the church yard.
