Trelowarren has 1,000 years of history, 600 in the same family.
You will find the Manor of Trelowarren in the 11th century Domesday Book, but it was farmed, forested and hunted over long before that.
Trelowarren’s first recorded owner was Earl Harold, the victor of Stamford Bridge but the loser at Hastings, which probably explains why ownership passed to Robert Mortain, half-brother of the Conqueror, Duke William of Normandy.
The Vyvyans, who had lived in Cornwall at least since the 13th century, inherited the Manor through marriage in 1427 and have run it as a working estate ever since.
They feature prominently in the history of the Britain. Hanibal Vyvyan was MP for Truro when the Spanish Armada threatened the West Country, and subsequently Governor of St Mawes Castle and Vice-Admiral of Cornwall when the Spaniards raided Penzance and Mousehole.
