The name St. Breward comes from the Latinised form, St. Brueredus, of its 6th century patron saint, Branwalader (Raven Lord), son of a Cornish king, Kenen. Other places dedicated to him include St. Brelade in Jersey, Loc Brevalaire in Brittany and a now demolished chapel in St. Breock, Cornwall. An ancient Celtic Cross in the churchyard dates from this pre-Norman period.
