Saveock Water in Cornwall
A while back Sara (Sarasuperid) posted somewhere in the forum about the archeological finds at the site of Saveock Water which contains some finds that supports the theory that witches lived there.
Sara also mentioned to me that the website doesn't mention anything about the people of the past that lived in the area.
In this post I will start with the maps. Other than knowing where Cornwall is, I didn't know the location so had to hit the maps.
Saveock Water in the old days was often spelled Seveock Water. It is located in the civil parish of Kenwyn of Cornwall.
It is to the west of the main town, Truro.
When you go down to the smaller town or village level, Saveock is about a mile east of CHACEWATER and about less than a mile west of GREEN BOTTOM.
The first map shows the general area of where Saveock Water is in relationship to Cornwall. This map is from the website http://www.fromoldbooks.org
from the book "The Antiquities of England and Wales" by Francis Grose, 1783.
I added the asterisk and "Saveock Water" notation.
The second, a set of two maps from the website http://www.old-maps.co.uk/maps.html
This shows that the name of Seveock and Saveock spread out at several locations
Modern day map of Saveock/Seveock
There are several locations that has Seveock or Saveock:
Seveock Farm (2 locations)
Saveock Farm (2 locations)
Saveock Manor Cottage
And it is still not clear at the moment where in the map is exactly the Saveock Water sites. Perhaps later we will.
