GLUVIAS (St.), a village and a parish in Falmouth district, Cornwall. The village stands near the upper end of a branch of Falmouth harbour, ¼ mile E by N of Penryn town and railway station; appears to have had an endowed church before the Conquest; and figures in Domesday book; but is now of small importance. The parish includes also the town of Penryn, which has a head post office. Acres, 2,899; of which 290 are water. Real property, £12,193. Pop., 4,760. Houses, 941. The property is much subdivided. The rocks include granite and felspar, and yield oxide of iron. Enys has belonged to the family of Enys since the time of Edward I.; and is famed, in old writings, for its fine gardens. Bohelland or Bailland barn, about ½ a mile N of the church, was the scene of the murder which formed the plot of Lillo’s play, called “the Penryn Tragedy,” a title changed by Coleman into “Fatal Curiosity.” Bostrow was the seat of the Pendarves family. The living is a vicarage, united with the vicarage of Budock, in the diocese of Exeter. Value, not reported. Patron, the Bishop of Exeter. The church is large and handsome; and contains monuments of the Pendarves family. The vicarage of Penwerris is a separate benefice. A collegiate church anciently stood at Glaseney, in Budock, but has disappeared. There are a Weslevan chapel, and a national school.
