St Keverne

St Keverne is a civil parish and village on The Lizard in Cornwall, United Kingdom. In addition to the parish an electoral ward exists titled St Meneage; this stretches to the western Lizard coast at Gunwalloe. The population of the ward at the 2011 election was 5,220; the Cornish Rebellion of 1497 started in St Keverne. The leader of the rebellion Michael An Gof was a blacksmith from St Keverne and is commemorated by a statue in the village. Before his execution, An Gof said that he should have "a name perpetual and a fame permanent and immortal". In 1997 a 500th anniversary march, "Keskerdh Kernow 500", celebrating the An Gof uprising, retraced the route of the original march from St Keverne, via Guildford to London; the parish is a large one. It includes some 10 miles of coast from Nare Point at the mouth of the Helford River to Kennack Sands, the Manacles offshore. Settlements on the coast include Porthallow and Coverack. Inland the parish includes the hamlets of Zoar, Traboe and Gwenter; the eastern part of Goonhilly Downs is in the parish.

St Keverne lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. St Keverne was, in the Middle Ages, the site of an important monastery; the church is dedicated to St Akeveranus, although for a considerable period this was corrupted to Kieran. The church is large for a village church and in its present form is 15th-century: however parts of the stonework appear to have been reused from a previous church building. Unusually for Cornwall, the tower is topped by a spire. Other features of interest include a mural painting. A 32-pounder carronade that divers recovered in 1978 from the wreck of HMS Primose stands by the lych-gate to the churchyard; the peal of ten bells is one of the largest two peals in a Cornish parish church. St. Keverne has been inhabited for many thousands of years, there is evidence of human habitation from at least the Mesolithic period, c. 5550 BC. The area is rich in archaeological history from a variety of different periods, including flints, cists, round houses, cliff castles.

The Mesolithic In 1967, A Mesolithic site known as Rock Mound was discovered at Poldowrian Site, situated near the Lankidden Cliff Castle. The Mesolithic site was dated between 5250 BC, from some hazelnut fragments. Flint tools were first discovered during attempts to plow the land for planting, overall, nearly 48,000 flint tools were discovered. Neolithic During the Neolithic period and beyond, St. Keverne was one of the primary sources of clay for pottery. Gabbroic clay covers an area of 7 square miles of the Lizard Peninsula in the area of St. Keverne Parish; the clay lies at a depth of 8 – 18 inches below the topsoil. In the late 1960s, Dr. D. Peacock examined numerous potsherds from around Cornwall, came to the conclusion that they were all made from the same gabbroic clay from St. Keverne. Most of the paleolithic pottery from around Cornwall has been found to be made of gabbroic clay, such as the sherds at the Neolithic site of Carn Brea at Redruth. Beaker Pottery St. Keverne has yielded an exceptional amount of Beaker pottery.

The Beaker Mound at Poldowrian has yielded one of the finest caches of Beaker pottery in Cornwall. Bronze Age Goonhilly Downs contains over 65 Bronze Age barrows, as well as the "dry tree" standing stone. A Bronze Age standing stone exists at Tremenheere, which means "Standing Stone Farm" and there is another place of the same name in Ludgvan. Other antiquities are a cist called the Three Brothers of Grugith on Crowza Downs and a destroyed fogou at Polkernogo. Iron Age St. Keverne has a number of Iron Age sites, with two of the most dramatic being the cliff castles of Chynalls and Lankidden. All, left in these sites are the faint markings of the ditches and banks that would have protected these castles, but during the Iron Age they would have provided a "prominent focus within a landscape quite densely populated by contemporary settlements or "rounds."" Another notable Iron Age artefact originating in St. Keverne is the elaborately engraved bronze mirror discovered in a cist grave, in 1833; this mirror was accompanied by two brooches, some beads, two rings.

St Keverne was in Celtic times part of the Meneage. The monastery at St Keverne was seized soon after by a lay lord. By 1236 the churches and demesnes of Tregonan had come into the possession of the Cistercian abbey at Beaulieu and their title was confirmed by Richard, Earl of Cornwall in 1258; this was a valuable possession including as it did the rectorial tithe of a large and prosperous parish, the tithe of fish, the lands of the churchtown. The right of sanctuary held by Beaulieu Abbey was extended to St Keverne. A small cell of monks was maintained at Tregonan. In the parish is Lesneague which can be derived from Cornish lis and manahec which would indicate that it was once the seat of a local chieftain.

Irish states since 1171

Irish states have existed under a number of different names for nearly a thousand years. A unified Irish proto-state had been coalescing from the multitude of small tribal kingdoms that existed circa AD 500, similar to the pattern elsewhere in Europe; the independent development of the several dynastic regional kingdoms into a nascent national kingdom, was extinguished by the Norman invasion of Ireland in 1169, although these regional Gaelic Ireland kingdoms continued to resist for centuries until the Tudor conquest of Ireland was completed in the 17th century. This list deals with the various states that existed from 1171 onwards that owed their origin to Norman and English involvement on the island of Ireland; these were recognised by the Holy See before 1570 and after 1766. Until the whole island was subdued following the end of the Nine Years' War in 1603 these states shared the island of Ireland with a patchwork of indigenous states that existed outside of their authority; the list below refers to all-Ireland states and to the 1922 post-partition states, not the individual Gaelic kingdoms which exercised the actual governance in their area when they existed, including during the 1350–1500 "Gaelic resurgence".

Lordship of Ireland Kingdom of Ireland Confederate Ireland was an Irish government that controlled about two thirds of Ireland during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and is arguably the only large successful sustained period of Irish self-government between the time of Brian Boru the High King of Ireland and the foundation of the Irish Free State in 1922. Patriot Parliament The revolutionary French backed Irish Republic controlled only parts of Connacht and is overlooked todayPart of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland The revolutionary Irish Republic controlled only small parts of the capital, for 6 days, but has had great symbolic significance sinceThe revolutionary Irish Republic Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland, both created by the Government of Ireland Act 1920, though only the former existed in reality. Irish Free State Ireland known since 1949 by its official description, Republic of Ireland, sometimes in English as Éire, the word for Ireland in Irish. For international purposes the British monarch was King of Ireland until 1949, after which time the President of Ireland became the foreign sovereign.

The Monarch's internal powers had been removed by 1937. With the enactment of the Republic of Ireland Act in 1949, all powers of the British monarch were transferred to the president; the name of the state remained Ireland after the passing of the Republic of Ireland Act, see names of the Irish state.
