Maker-with-Rame (Cornish: Magor a-berth Hordh) is a civil parish in Cornwall, England . It is situated on the Rame Peninsula, approximately four miles (6.5 km) south of Saltash and two miles (3 km) west of Plymouth.

The parish was formed in 1941 from the ecclesiastical parishes of Maker and Rame. It occupies the eastern end of the Rame peninsula and is surrounded on three sides by sea: the Hamoaze to the north, Plymouth Sound to the east, and the English Channel to the south and southwest. To the west, Maker-with-Rame is bounded by Millbrook civil parish.

Maker-with-Rame takes its name from its principal villages, Maker and Rame. Other settlements in the parish include Cawsand, Cremyll and Kingsand.

Rame

the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Rame (Cornish: Hordh) is a hamlet between Rame Head and the village of Cawsand in South East Cornwall. It is situated on the Rame Peninsula. Rame means "the high protruding cliff", or possibly, "the ram's head".

Originally Cawsand was in the parish of Rame, but now has its own church in the village. The neighbouring church at Maker is in the same parish as Rame. Together they are called 'Maker-with-Rame' parish (both civil and ecclesiastical).

NOTE: There is another Rame near Helston in west Cornwall. It is believed that the west Cornwall Rame was named after the one on the Rame Peninsula.

During his time in command of the Channel Fleet between 1805 and 1807 John Jervis, 1st Earl of St Vincent rented a house in Rame.

Maker

the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Maker (Cornish: Magor) is a village between Cawsand and Rame Head, situated on the Rame Peninsula, in Cornwall, England.

The name means a ruin in Cornish, but another Celtic name is Egloshayle, (not to be confused with Egloshayle on the River Camel) which means "the church on the estuary", a very apt description of the church's location.

The village and its neighbour Rame are in the civil parish of Maker with Rame which was part of the Roborough Hundred and St. Germans Rural District between 1894 and 1974.
