Meaning & History
Merewenne is listed in the 12th-century Hartland list as one of the daughters of BRYCHAN. While she is sometimes considered identical with MORWENNA of Morwenstowe, another daughter of Brychan, Merewenne and the variants Marwyne and Merwenna appear in medieval records referring to the patron-saint of Marhamchurch near Bude (a church dating back to 1086 which is situated in north-east Cornwall).
