The parish comprises 3,090 acres of land, and 675 of water. Real property, £6,937; of which £95 are in quarries, and £2,354 in the railway. Pop. in 1851, 1,934; in 1861, 2,411. Houses, 447. The property is subdivided. Trelissick House, the seat of the Hon. Mrs. Gilbert, is an elegant mansion in the Ionic style, with portico on the model of the temple of Erectheus at Athens; is surrounded by picturesque and romantic scenery; and stands on an acclivity, commanding a rich view over Falmouth harbour and its shores to the ocean. Killiganeen belonged to the Husseys, and passed to the Sprys. Low Feock belonged to the brave seaman Penrose, of the time of Charles II.
