Enoder, St.

ENODER, ST., a parish, in the union of St. Columb, partly in the hundred of Powder, and partly in that of Pyder, county of Cornwall, 2¾ miles (N. E.) from St. Michael's; containing 1127 inhabitants. The parish comprises 6000 acres, of which 777 are common land or waste; the substratum is rich in mineral wealth, and there are two quarries of slate-stone used for building, and a quarry of good granite. Fairs are held at Summer-Court on Holy-Thursday, the 28th of July, and 25th of September, and at St. Michael's on the 15th of October, chiefly for cattle and sheep. The living is a vicarage, valued in the king's books at £26. 13. 4.; patron and appropriator, the Bishop of Exeter: the great tithes have been commuted for £463, and the vicarial for £320; the glebe comprises 17 acres. The church is a very handsome structure, of later English architecture, with a square embattled tower crowned by pinnacles, erected in 1711 to replace the original tower, which had fallen in 1686. The Bryanites and Wesleyans have places of worship. There were formerly two chapels in the parish; the fields in which they respectively stood are called the Chapel Meadows, and pay great tithes to the vicar.
