Budock Primitive Methodist chapel

Budock: return from the Primitive Methodist chapel to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship. Return no: 308 2 2 13
transcribed by David Tonks 2021

The return from the Primitive Methodist chapel at College in Budock to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship was completed by William Warn, the registrar in November 1851, 8 months after the census date. No attendance is reported, but average attendance of 50 in both morning and evening services is given.  The morning Sunday school served 10 learners

The chapel is dated from about 1830 and held 200.  We are told that John Annear was the Superintendent or Manager of the chapel.

Where was the chapel and what happened to it?

  • How interesting!
    College valley is just west of Penryn (with the College reservoir) in the Budock Area. There were houses and an old brewery there.
    College Farm is marked on 1880 maps, south west of Penryn near the original Glasney College site (hence the name?). I can’t (yet) find any other Primitive Chapels in the area, apart from the Penryn chapels which were close by, and for which there is a separate census submission (see their page). The chapels further towards Argal were Wesleyan.
