(Some italicized place names shown in brackets were from 14th/15th century documents; my best guess. OS coordinates correspond with maps at "Get a Map" Ordnance Survey maps and the Geograph website.)

Many places in the parish have Cornish names, which have unique meaning. In Cornish, "Caer" or "Car" meant an enclosed space, or a camp. "Lan" meant either a flat space/enclosure, or a holy flat space (such as a monastery or church), possible tilting toward the ocean. When followed by a "t", "c",or "s" it was synonomus with Nans - a valley. "Pen" meant end, head, headland, hill - while "Tre" meant a homestead, and its surrounding buildings, and/or a "town" as the Cornish understand it, as in Church Town.

Several of the places listed below have an explanation of their meaning following the map coordinates.
