Women at Creed Rectory
Women at Creed Rectory (20120517)
A group of women photographed at Creed Rectory on July 29th 1895. There is no indication of the nature of the group but possibly Mother's Union. The woman standing in the back row third from the left is Mrs Minnie Scholar of Penbetha, mother of Fred Scholar whose memories of Grampound in the 20th century have been published by the Grampound with Creed Heritage Project. Fred's father was Thomas Scholar and Minnie was his second wife, his first wife having died in Devon at a young age. She was born Minnie Treneer at Laity Moor near Ponsonooth in the parish of St Gluvias (Penryn) and came to Grampound, probably in the 1880s, to work as a nurse to the children of Revd and Mrs Vivian at Creed Rectory. Minnie married Thomas Scholar late in 1891 and they went on to have eight children, including Frederick Charles - 'Fred'. She is buried at Creed Church. (Scholar)
Nantellan Cottage c1991
Nantellan Cottage c1991 (20120515)
Nantellan Cottage is thought to be pre-Victorian, probably very early 19th century. In the garden was the mill and some of its wall still exists. We know that the mill wheel was removed in 1967 and taken to Garlenick at the same time the stream/leat was re-routed to where it is today. Nantellan Manor/Mansion/House of the Gentry is closely adjacent and was first mentioned in 1337 as part of Tybesta. Tybesta was a Saxon Manor that was taken over by William the Conqueror and was one of seventeen Royal Manors in Cornwall that he granted to his half brother Robert, Earl of Mortain. It is listed in the Domesday Book of 1087 when it was clearly a large and prosperous holding. Nantellan House was rebuilt on the ruins of the original in 1551 by John Vincent, on his marriage to Johane Nankivell. The present house was added to in 1748. A new South front which houses the three front rooms, lounge, dining room and drawing room was built in 1795. The (snug/study) at the back of the house is thought to be the original living room.

Grampound Auxiliary Unit in WW2
Grampound Auxiliary Unit in WW2 (20120447)
Grampound Auxiliary Unit WW2. As with the Home Guard, the Auxiliary Units were civilians not regular soldiers but they were trained to a higher level of technical capability and it was envisaged that in the event of an invasion, they would harass and obstruct the enemy advance significantly. They were given professional training in the tactics of guerrilla warfare. They remained very secret during and well beyond the end of the war. The Grampound Auxiliary Unit had the task, in the event of an invasion, of blowing up Grampound Bridge in order to obstruct the movement of enemy troops, transport and heavy armour. They had an operational base at the north end of Trewithen Woods, now known as Barteliver Wood. Featured in this photograph are (l to r) WJ (Jack) Richards of Fore Street, HG (Harold) Cock of Moors View, Cpl SA (Sidney) Honey of Fore Street, WJM (John) Osbourne of Ringmore House, Sgt WJ (William) Knowles of Old Hill, CA (Clem) Knowles of Old Hill, IEE (Ire) Broom of Old Hill. Note that they are all carrying revolvers. More information about the Auxiliary Units can be found at Coleshill Auxiliary Research Team - http://www.coleshillhouse.com/ -. (Hicks)
