The two Cornish estates attributed to Æthelwulf in 1066 were—if the tentative identification of Treurgan with Treworgie is correct (Thorn 1988a: 22)—located only about 4 miles apart, Tremail on the edge of Bodmin Moor in the upper valley of the Inny at over 800 feet above sea level, Treworgie across the hill tops to the north and down into a wooded combe descending to the north coast. They are close enough for the identity of Æthelwulf 50 to be certain, but too far (some 25 miles) from the Cornish manor held by an Æthelwulf in 1086 for that to be the same man. Identity with the Devon Æthelwulf 51 of 1066 is conceivable, but complicated by the fact that the precise location of the latter’s manor of Lidemore is unknown. All we know for certain is that it was in Torrington hundred, which stretched to the Cornish border, close enough to Tremail and Treworgie for the same individual to be involved.
Æthelwulf 50 held his larger manor, Tremail, from the church of St Petroc of Bodmin, some 12 miles distant on the other side of Bodmin Moor, and he was not free to separate it from the church.
