The Manor House, Golden - scene of St Cuthbert's arrest
The Manor House, Golden - scene of St Cuthbert's arrest
Golden Manor was once owned by the Cornishman Francis Tregian (1548-1608), an Elizabethan recusant, who sheltered the Catholic priest, Cuthbert Mayne (1544-77) in his home. The Manor House was the scene of the arrest on 8th June 1577 of Cuthbert by Richard Grenville, the Sheriff of Cornwall.

Cuthbert was emprisoned and tried at Launceston where he was hung, drawn and quartered six months later. He was the first seminary priest to be executed, and the Church made him a Saint in 1970. The life of Francis Tregian, his host, was spared but he forfeited the manor and spent 26 years in prison refusing to recant his faith.

St Cuthbert's death and subsequent events resulted in the eventual demise of the Catholic cause in Cornwall, see SW8765 : The Manor House, St Mawgan (Lanherne) and its history. The manor house (photo above) still has many of its interior Tudor features as well as the original entrance and stone mullion windows seen here.
