Treknow is in Tintagel parish.
The Genuki site is a good place to search out such matters:
(http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/Cornwall/indexpars.html) for Cornwall. The entry for Tintagel mentions
Treknow as in the Domesday book.
It is important to realize that people did not go to the nearest church but
to their parish church -- which would usually be the nearest, but not
necessarily. If you lived just in one parish, the church of the neighbouring parish
could be much nearer.... Just looking at a map and identifying the nearest
church is thus not wise....
