Bodriggy was one of the large estates that surrounded the estuary of the River Hayle before the town of Hayle proper came into being. The estate is known to have been in the hands of the family of Bodriggy as early as 1181. During the last 800 years its ownership has passed into different families only twice.
Once the home of Merchant Curnow, the West family (of engineering note) and
the Ellis family of the Hayle Brewery.
