The name Falmouth is of English origin. (Present-day Cornish language
enthusiasts translate it as Aberfal or Aberfala based on Welsh
precedents.) It is claimed that an earlier Celtic name for the place
was Peny-cwm-cuic (which translates to English as 'head of the creek')
which is the same as the anglicised "Pennycomequick" district in
Falmouth Parish Church, Church Street, dedicated to "King Charles the
Falmouth was where Henry VIII built
Pendennis Castle to defend Carrick
Roads in 1540. The main town of the district was then at Penryn. Sir
John Killigrew created the town of Falmouth shortly after 1613.
In the late 16th century, under threat from the Spanish Armada, the
defences at Pendennis were strengthened by the building of angled
ramparts. During the Civil War,
Pendennis Castle was the second to
last fort to surrender to the Parliamentary Army.
Killigrew monument in
After the Civil War, Sir
Peter Killigrew received royal patronage when
he gave land for the building of the Church of King Charles the
Martyr, dedicated to Charles I, "the Martyr".
The seal of Falmouth was blazoned as "An eagle displayed with two
heads and on each wing with a tower" (based on the arms of Killigrew).
The arms of the borough of Falmouth were "Arg[ent]. a double-headed
eagle displayed Sa[ble]. each wing charged with a tower Or. in base

The Falmouth Packet Service operated out of Falmouth for over 160
years between 1689 and 1851. Its purpose was to carry mail to and from
Britain's growing empire. As the most south-westerly good harbour in
Great Britain, Falmouth was often the first port for returning Royal
Navy ships. Captain John Bullock who worked in the Packet Service
built Penmere Manor in 1825

In 1805 news of Britain's victory and Admiral Nelson's death at
Trafalgar was landed here from the schooner Pickle and taken to London
by stagecoach. On 2 October 1836 HMS Beagle anchored at Falmouth
at the end of her noted survey voyage around the world. That
Charles Darwin left the ship and took the
Mail coach to his
family home at The Mount, Shrewsbury. The ship stayed a few days
Robert FitzRoy visited the Fox family at nearby Penjerrick
Gardens. Darwin's shipmate Sulivan later made his home in the nearby
waterside village of Flushing, then home to many naval officers.
In 1839 Falmouth was the scene of a gold dust robbery when £47,600
worth of gold dust from Brazil was stolen on arrival at the port.
Falmouth Docks were developed from 1858, and the Royal
National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) opened Falmouth Lifeboat Station
nearby in 1867. The present building dates from 1993 and also houses
Her Majesty's Coastguard. The RNLI operates two lifeboats from
Falmouth: Richard Cox Scott, a 17-metre (56 ft) Severn-class
all-weather boat, and Eve Park, an Atlantic 75 inshore lifeboat.
Near the town centre is Kimberley Park. The land pre-dates
1877,[clarification needed] and is named after the Earl of Kimberley
who leased the park's land to the borough of Falmouth. Today the park
has exotic and ornate plants and trees.
Cornwall Railway reached Falmouth on 24 August 1863. The railway
brought new prosperity to Falmouth, as it made it easy for tourists to
reach the town. It also allowed the swift transport of the goods
recently disembarked from the ships in the port. The town now has
three railway stations.
Falmouth Docks railway station is the original
terminus and is close to
Pendennis Castle and
Town railway station was opened on 7 December 1970 and is
convenient for the
National Maritime Museum

Penmere railway station
Penmere railway station opened on 1 July 1925 towards
the north of Falmouth and within easy walking distance of the top of
The Moor. All three stations are served by regular trains from Truro
on the Maritime Line. Penmere Station was renovated in the late 1990s,
using the original sign and materials.
During World War II, 31 people were killed in Falmouth by German
bombing. It was also the launching point for the noted commando raid
on Saint-Nazaire. An anti-submarine net was laid from Pendennis to St
Mawes, to prevent enemy U-boats entering the harbour.

the town of Falmouth, long the seat of the Killigrew family.

the historic Falmouth Borough Council. Falmouth received its Order of
Charter in 1661.
As of 2017, it is governed by sixteen councillors (four represent the
Boslowick Ward, three each for the Arwenack, Penwerris, Smithick and

Economy, industry and tourism
Falmouth Harbour, National Maritime Museum,
Cornwall and Pendennis
While Falmouth's maritime activity has much declined from its heyday,
the docks are still a major contributor to the town's economy. It is
the largest port in Cornwall. Falmouth is still a cargo port and the
bunkering of vessels and the transfer of cargoes also keep the port's
facilities busy. The port is also popular with cruise ship operators.
Further up the sheltered reaches of the Fal there are several ships
laid up, awaiting sailing orders and/or new owners/charterers.
Falmouth is a popular holiday destination and it is now primarily a
tourist resort. The five main beaches starting next to Pendennis
Castle and moving along the coast towards the Helford river are
Castle, Tunnel, Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and
Maenporth beaches. The

Falmouth has many literary connections. The town was the birthplace of
Toad, Mole and Rat: Kenneth Grahame's classic The Wind in the Willows

Reproductions of the letters are currently on display in the hotel.

World War II

Falmouth harbour as well as an army base in the town. Some of the U.S.
D-day landings originated from Falmouth harbour and the surrounding
rivers and creeks.
The SS Flying Enterprise, a cargo vessel that had sailed from Hamburg
on 21 December 1951, ran into a storm on the Western Approaches to the
English Channel. A crack appeared on her deck and the cargo shifted. A
number of vessels went to her aid including the tug Turmoil which was
stationed in Falmouth, but they found it impossible to take the Flying
Enterprise in tow. The ship was finally taken in tow on 5 January 1952
by the Turmoil when she was some 300 nautical miles (560 km) from
Falmouth. It took several days to reach port. On 10 January the tow
line parted when the ship was still 41 nautical miles (76 km)
from Falmouth. Two other tugs joined the battle to save the ship and
cargo, but the Flying Enterprise finally sank later that day. Captain
Carlsen and the tug's mate Kenneth Dancy, the only crew members still
on board, were picked up by the Turmoil and taken to Falmouth to a
