Stithians Church Cornwall
Taken from Wikipedia
The fine parish church is dedicated to St Stythian, but there is a considerable difficulty in identifying this saint. References to the parish in 13th and 14th century records show various spellings: Stethyana, Stediana, Stedyan, Stediane, and Stidianus. Rev Sabine Baring-Gould’s “Cornish Dedications” (1906) makes a connection with St Etaine of Tumna in Ireland, while Rev Michael Warner (Vicar of Stithians 1983-1993) suggests St Stephen. The saint’s feast day is the Sunday closest to 10th July, and Stithians Show is held on the Monday following Feast Sunday.
There has been a church on the site since the 6th century, but the oldest part of the current church is 14th century; and the imposing tower was added in the 15th century. The former ecclesiastical parish of Carnmenellis is now merged with Stithians parish.
