Flushing in the 1914 Kelly's Directory

FLUSHING is a small village and ecclesiastical parish, formed June 10 1844, from Mylor civil parish, in the Truro division of the county hundred and petty sessional division of East Kerrier, Falmouth union and county court district, rural deanery of Carnmarth, archdeaconry of Cornwall and diocese of Truro. By the Boundaries Act, 1863 (31 and 32 Vict. c. 46), this place is included in the parliamentary borough of Penryn and Falmouth. On account of the mildness of the climate, Flushing is much frequented by invalids; it is separated from Falmouth by the Penryn River, a wide creek, crossed by ferry boats and is 2½ miles east from Penryn. The church of St. Peter is a small building of stone in the Norman style, opened for divine service in February, 1842, and consecrated in August of the same year, the total cost being about £1,200: it consists of nave, with apse, north porch and a western turret containing one bell: the organ was formerly in Exeter Hall, London: in 1871 the church was renovated and restored at a cost of £170, and a vestry added, and in 1893 was further restored, at a cost of over £200: there are 200 sittings. The register dates from the year 1873. The living is a vicarage, net yearly value £270, with residence, in the gift of the vicar of Mylor, and held since 1889 by the Rev. Francis Forbes SAVAGE, of University College, Durham. There is a Weslyan chapel, built in 1816, and a Primitive Methodist chapel, erected in 1866. In the village is a Unionist club. Trefusis, the property of the ancient family of that name, of which Lt.-Col. the Hon. Henry Walter HEPBURN-STUART-FORBES-TREFUSIS is the present representative, has been rebuilt and is beautifully situated on a bold headland jutting out into Falmouth harbour; it is occupied by Charles Sydney GOLDMAN esq. M.P. An oyster fishery is carried on here. On the 14th Jan. 1800 the “Queen” transport was wrecked in a gale off Trefusis Point, and 369 lives were lost. The population in 1911 was 887.
