The Church is named after St Thetha, one of the twenty-four sons and daughters of Prince Brychan, a Welsh chieftain. She and many of her brothers and sisters, including Endelienta, Mabena, Adwena, Minfreda, came to North Cornwall to convert people to Christianity in the Dark Ages after the Romans left Britain. The churchyard and church land is roughly in the shape of a circle. This means there was probably some kind of place of worship here in Celtic times. The Cross in the cemetery is the third tallest in Cornwall and also dates from Celtic times. It probably stood on the other side of the churchyard (where Forge Cottage is now) as the base of it is still there.

Family 1: Elizabeth and William Keat

Elizabeth is the daughter of Nicholas and Ann Gillard and the granddaughter of Nicholas 1768 born in Warbstow.

In 1841 she is at Halworthy, Treneglos with her son and her parents In 1851 she is living in Lanteglos.In 1859, she marries William Keat, an accountant at the Delabole Slate Quarry - he is 57 and born in 1814. The ceremony is at Camelford Church and RevGeorge Chesson officiates. Elizabeth is described (Trewmans Flying Post 8th September) as living at Youlton Cottage, Warbstow believed to be near Reddyford Mill, south of Warbstow (there is a hamlet called Youlstone there nowadays).

St Teath seems packed with Keats especially by the 1891 census. In 1871, they are at medrose, St Teath. In 1881, Elizabeth and William are living in Lower Pengelly Village, St Teath and William is working as a quarry agent. By 1891, Elizabeth, aged 75, is now widowed and lodging just a few doors away from her son with Sarah Hoskins, a charwoman, at 81,Pengelly High Lane, St Teath. In 1901 Elizabeth appears to have married again as she is now Elizabeth Harris (this is extremely unlikely and the census takers may have confused her with her granddaughter?) and is living with William in St Teath.

  • son William born 1840 in Warbstow. William was the illegitimate son of Elizabeth and the grandson of Nicholas and Ann Gillard. In 1841 William is at Halworthy, Treneglos with his grandparents and mother. In 1861 he is working as a farm labourer and living at Yeolden Gate, Warbstow with grandmother; Ann who is 81, a farmer's widow and deaf.
    In 1871, William is living with Elizabeth and William Keat in St Teath and William is an engine driver at the quarry. In 1873, William marries Jane Jenkin. She was born in St Teath in 1832 and may well have been married before. In 1881 they are still living in St Teath. In 1891, they are living at Pengelly High Lane, St Teath and William is working as a stationary engine driver. In 1901, they are still there with daughter and grandson...
    • son Charles B 1865 born in Warbstow - not on 1881 census but appears in the 1891 census, living with his parents and working as a stationary engine driver.
