Old Portmellon

Following the successful celebration of the 500th anniversary of Bodrugan's Leap on 20th February 1987 a group of us got together to form the St.Goran Old Cornwall Society. This got off to a good start and among the supporters of the society were several from Portmellon - perfectly legitimately since the stream that runs down into the cove is the old boundary between the parishes of St. Goran and Mevagissey, indeed still is from the ecclesiastical standpoint. Having collected quite a lot of material relating to my home parish I had some information about Portmellon and I could see that though a small settlement it had quite an interesting history. I tried to encourage some from there in the Old Cornwall Society to put together its history. That is one background of this production - the encouragement did not succeed and I felt it was best to tackle the subject myself...
