KILLIGARTH: Three Centuries of a Cornish Manor

by James Derriman

On the Cornish coast between Looe and Polperro, the manor of Killigarth has a history full of drama. An Elizabethan lord of the manor was the subject of a plot to kidnap him and spirit him off to Spain. In the time of Charles II a clendestine midnight wedding was followed by a siege of the manor house, a series of lawsuits and the gaoling of the bride's mother. Tenants of the manor have included Dr Jonathan Couch the naturalist, and Zephaniah Job the 'smugglers' banker'.
