Cuby, Cornwall is a village in Cornwallmarker, Englandmarker, in the United Kingdommarker. The village is approximately 7 miles (12 km) south-west of St Austellmarker. Tregonymarker and Cuby together form one civil parish (since 1832): Cornelly parish was united with it in 1934.

Cuby Parish Church

The church of Cuby is dedicated to Saint Cuby, a Welsh saint: since the parish church of Tregony was lost to the River Fal ca. 1540 Cuby Parish Church has been in fact the parish church of Tregony also. The church was rebuilt in 1828 though some of the medieval masonry still exists on the north side and the tower (of two stages) is of the 14th century. In the south aisle is an inscribed stone of the 6th or 7th century (Nonnita Ercilini Rigati [...]tris Fili Ercilini). The church in Norman times belonged to the alien priory at Tregony but in 1278 ownership passed to Merton Priory in Surrey,

Notable person

William Hennah, first lieutenant of HMS Mars is buried at Cuby Parish Church. His ship was part of the British fleet under Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgarmarker.
