English: St Keverne is a village and civil parish in Cornwall, United Kingdom, on the Lizard Peninsula. The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 started there. The leader of the rebellion Michael An Gof (the "smith" in Cornish) was a blacksmith from St Keverne and is commemorated by a statue in the village. An Gof before his execution is recorded to have said that he should have "a name perpetual and a fame permanent and immortal". In 1997 a 500th anniversary march celebrating the An Gof uprising, (Keskerdh Kernow 500) was held, which retraced the route of the original march from St Keverne, via Guildford to London. The tenor, Charles Incledon was also born in St Keverne.
