Amongst the seats of ancient gentry, of which no traces remain, may be reckoned Bynamy, the seat of the Blanchminsters, and afterwards of the Coleshills; Tremoderet, of the Coleshills; Trembleith, the original seat of the Arundells; Bodrugan, of the Bodrugans, and afterwards of the Edgcumbes; Carminow and Fentongollan, of the Carminows; Reskymer, of the Reskymers; Killegrew, of the Killegrews; and Tredinnick, of the Tredinnecks. Tonkin speaks of the last-mentioned, which has been wholly taken down more than forty years ago, as having had a magnificent Gothic hall.

Among those which remain, either wholly or in part, in a dilapidated state, and for the most part occupied as farm-houses, are, Rialton, formerly a seat of the Priors of Bodmin, afterwards of the Mundays; Golden, of the Tregians; Clifton, of a branch of the Arundells; Halwyn, of the Champernowns; Crocadon, of the Trevisas, and afterwards (till within a few years) of the Corytons; Pengersick, of the Millitons; Bochym, of the Bochyms and Bellots: Benhellack, of the Gerveys family; Shillingham, of the Bullers; Trecarrrell, of the Trecarrells; Trevedoc, of the Beres; Poole, of the Trelawneys (now the parish-workhouse of Menheniot); Tresunger, of the Vyvyans and Matthews; Treworgan, of the Trencreeks and Polwheles; Penhele, of the Grenvilles and Speccots; and Nanswidden, a more modern mansion, reduced by fire to a shell, the seat of the Hoblyns.
