=== Parish History  ===
  
The Borough of Saltash was founded by one of the de Valletorts, Lords of Trematon Castles, in the mid 12th century. The founder provided a large chapel for the town in the central market square of the new town. The Chapel was dedicated to St Nichols, patron Saint of travellers, sailors and safe journeys&nbsp; where an ancient highway crossed an important estuary by means of a ferry.

Saltash St Nicholas and St Faith is an Ecclesiastical Parish and a market town in the county of Cornwall, created in 1815 from chapelry in [[St Stephens by Saltash, Cornwall]].
  
For more than 700 years St Nicholas’s Chapel was a chapel-of-ease, subordinate to the Mother Church of Stephen, although baptismal rights were acquired before the end of the Medieval period. During the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, Saltash Corporation increasingly took control, designating the building “the Corporation Chapel” and appointing Chaplains. There were many disputes, one case even reaching the Court of Arches, Canterbury, in 1752. The Chapel had no burial ground; until 1864 the Corporation permitted members of prominent families to be interred in the chapel.<br>

St Nicholas became a Parish church in 1881 and the St Faith dedication recalled an earlier church in the town from the mediaeval period.<br>
