There appears to be no direct link to the previous owners except that, despite her marriage to Joseph Lamb Popham at St Martins in the Fields in 1801 his mother, Phillippa Wallis, was from Wendron parish and her father was a Christopher Wallis b 1744 Madron. This Wallis/Walishe family originated in West Penwith in 1645 so may have had family connections Christopher W. Popham built the walled garden and a Gothic Folly Cottage, later utilized as a potting shed. He was also probably responsible for the planting out of the 50 yard long, yew tree tunnel. By 1871 he had died and the house was sold to William Bickford Smith of Illogan in 1874. West Briton, August 19, 1836: Breage Cottage Gardening Society On Wednesday, the 10th instant, the second annual meeting of this society was held at Wheal Vor National School rooms, C. W. Popham, Esq. president, in the chair. All persons present agreed that the collection of vegetables was excellent. The following prizes were awarded: For the best cultivated Plot of potatoes, not less than 10 lace[?], in the lower side of the parish, 10s to Thomas Jose, Tregunno, second 5s. to Edward Bawden, Rinsey, third, 3s. to Joseph Polkinhorne, Wheal Rib. [the questioned word certainly looks like lace] For the best cultivated Plot to potatoes, not less than 10 lace[?], in the higher side of the parish, 10s. to Elizabeth Williams, Pellor, second, 5s to William Williams, Carleen, third, 3s to Richd. Pullamountain, Broad Lane.

We understand that premiums will be given next year for the Cottages which are best covered with Roses or other Creepers, provided that the dung-pit be not in front of the door.
