In the introduction to his book, Penryn: People Places Postcards Photographs, my cousin Ernie Warmington states: “The Borough of Penryn is situated at the head of the Penryn River where it flows down into the Falmouth Harbour. One of the most ancient boroughs in Cornwall. It is not a large town with a population of approximately 6,000. Penryn stretching over three sides of a wooded valley and is a town of many gardens, practically every home… has a garden of no small proportions, as common with most Cornish towns and especially the older part of the town, were built fronting the narrow streets and roads.”
This website is aimed at helping anyone with family history connections with Penryn, or have links with several town names such as Warmington and Treneer; or have an interest in the Bible Christian movement in Cornwall.
