Polruan

POLRUAN, a township, in the parish of Lanteglos-by-Fowey, union of Liskeard, hundred of West, E. division of Cornwall; containing 720 inhabitants. The fishing-village of Polruan had anciently a market and a fair, and appears to have been of some importance, having furnished one ship and 60 mariners to the fleet before Calais, in the reign of Edward III.
