Are there any enthusiasts of obscure mines out there who have ever heard of Trevellance Mine, Bolingey. I've recently seen a reference to it and it could have been, if it ever was a lead mine.? Bearing in mind there were a few other lead workings not too far distant. The mine was supposedly at work in the mid 1840's. Smile IP: 213.205.194.99

There are a couple of references to "Trevellans" in the dirty, capitalist Mining Journal throughout 1846 and similarly with the West Briton.

Cheeky clickers and raunchy researchers should direct themselves to the utopian emblem of the working class at www.nmrs.org.uk/mines-database/

Silliness aside though, it's a phenomenally useful resource for published sources. Unpublished; well we still have a gap to fill, like between the bourgeois and proletariat.

Trevellance/Trevellans/Trevellas all hold the same etymology. What makes it even more confusing is that the St Agnes and Perranzabuloe tenements were both in the manor of Lambourn. "Trefelens" is recorded in the 13th century as part of a deed of enfeofment.
Lambourn was not extant at the time of the Domesday survey in 1086, but presumably was created through subinfeudation of the manor of Callestick prior to 1290.

Thank you KM for that exhaustive reply of useful info. I had an idea it may have been a miss--spelling of a St. Agnes location. Particularly as the districts are not too far distant. Smile IP: 213.205.194.52

Trevellance is south of Bolingey and appears to be the westerly extension of the lead lodes worked in New Chiverton to the East.

The lodes trend EW.

Symons has made the occasional error though....with names of things

But in the spirit of lead lodes, there was probably a whole load of Zinc, etc. also, particularly west of new chiverton. It's getting hotter that way.

The EW lead lodes are different animals to the NS ones.

I can only locate the following newspaper article possibly relating to the mine in question: -

A Steam Engine for Sale by Private Contract - For Sale, One 17-inch Cylinder Pumping Engine, applied to work double, equal to the duty if 24-inch, with a very good Boiler, about 6 tons.
Also, 20 fathoms 5-inch Plunger Lift complete; 7 fathoms of Bucket Rods; 7 cwt. Connection and Bucket Plates, and sundry other Mining Materials.
Apply at Trevellans Mine, to Captain John Murrish, or for further particulars to Mr. W.H. Vice, Truro, or Capt. Rowe, St. Agnes.
Dated Truro, 14th October 1846.
