Archival history The Acquisition and History of the Archive
The archive of the Arundell family is one of exceptional richness and is of great national and local importance. It consists of 28,000 documents extending from the twelfth century to the twentieth which record the history of the Arundell family and their land-holdings in Cornwall and several other counties, particularly in the south-west.
The archive was in private hands and not widely used by researchers until 1991 when three years of negotiation resulted in its sale by private treaty to the county record offices of Cornwall and Wiltshire. This division of the collection was justified by the exceptional circumstances of its history. The archive comprised the records of two estates, those of the Arundells of Lanherne and those of the Arundells of Wardour, the latter being a junior branch of the family established in Wiltshire in the mid-sixteenth century. In 1739 the Cornish heiress married her distant cousin Henry Arundell, later seventh Baron Arundell of Wardour, and the two estates were jointly inherited by their heir in 1756. The Cornish estates continued to be administered separately from those of the Wardour Arundells, however, and were mostly sold by 1808. As a result the records of the two estates remained distinct and could be divided between the two record offices.
In recognition of the archive's national historical interest and because it was to go to publicly funded institutions the sale was exempt from estate duty and received tax concessions. The purchase was made possible by grant donations from the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Victoria and Albert Museum Purchase Grant Fund, the Wolfson Trust and the Friends of the National Libraries. In Cornwall a generous contribution was made by Cornwall County Council and the remainder was raised by private subscription in an appeal co-ordinated by the Cornwall Heritage Trust.
Until 1701, when the last direct male heir died, the main seat of the Arundells in Cornwall was Lanherne manor house in the parish of Mawgan in Pydar. It was from Lanherne that the family's extensive estates were administered and it was in the Lanherne counting-room that the bulk of their records were kept. The heiresses of the last Sir John Arundell were seldom in Cornwall. The administration of the estates was in the hands of a steward based at Lanherne and this arrangement continued after the marriage of Mary Arundell to Henry Arundell in 1739. In 1813 the records of the Cornish Arundells were transferred to Wardour Castle (Journals of Christopher Wallis, Helston attorney, at the Royal Institution of Cornwall.) where a new house and muniment room had been constructed in the late 1770s. Since 1794 Lanherne house had been occupied by a group of Carmelite nuns who were granted sanctuary there by Lord and Lady Arundell after fleeing the French invasion of Antwerp. The documents remained at Wardour until the 1960s when they were moved to a purpose-built muniment room in the grounds of Hook Manor, the family's new home on the Wardour estate. From there they returned to Cornwall in 1991.
The original arrangement of the archive was clearly upset during the moves to its various homes over the centuries although a 1757 inventory of the Lanherne counting room suggests that even there it was not kept in any systematic order. The majority of the records fell from active use in the early nineteenth century when the Cornish estates were sold but almost immediately began to be consulted for their historical interest. The History of Modern Wiltshire, published between 1822 and 1844, recorded that Michael Jones esquire, a relative of the ninth Baron's second wife, had minutely examined the documents and arranged them alphabetically and chronologically under each manor (History of Modern Wiltshire, Sir R.C. Hoare, Vol IV part 1, footnote on p. 175). It was probably Jones who wrote comments in the margins and on the dorse of many documents and attached others to backing paper.
The Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts first inspected the archive in 1871. The resulting report (Second report of the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts, xi, and appendix, pp.33-36, 1874) recorded that 'the vast collection of Charters, Rolls and Papers are at present deposited in eighteen boxes, in seven presses, and in various drawers. These are filled to overflowing with documents of all dates, from the twelfth century to a comparatively recent period.' The report's author stressed that his visit to Wardour had only been a brief one and recommended more detailed listing at a future date.
This more detailed listing was carried out by the Commission in the late 1930s and between 1947 and 1950. Only the medieval and manorial documents were examined and they were transferred into 'archive' storage boxes at this time. The alphabetical and chronological arrangement of the documents in the lists and in the boxes was presumably that imposed by Michael Jones a century earlier. These lists were of limited usefulness as each document was only cursorily described and there were no indexes but they remained the only existing guide to the archive's contents at the time of sale.
While the archive was at Wardour Castle and Hook Manor a few scholars were granted access and their work appears in several publications. There are, however, only four known publications containing transcripts of Arundell documents. In 1805 Charles Bowles, A Short Account of the Hundred of Penwith in the County of Cornwall, printed a few very important documents, most of which are no longer in the archive, in A Short Account of the Hundred of Penwith in the County of Cornwall (Charles Bowles, A Short Account of the Hundred of Penwith in the County of Cornwall, A Short Account of the Hundred of Penwith in the County of Cornwall (Sherborne, 1805). The Monasticon Dioecesis Exoniensis of George Oliver, published in 1846 (See also the Additional Supplement to the George Oliver, Monasticon Dioecesis Exoniensis, published in 1854, which contains more transcipts of Tywardreath documents) contains transcripts of several of the Tywardreath documents, some of which are now missing from the archive. In 1876 translations of five manorial accounts which had somehow left the archive were printed in the Journal of the Royal Institution of Cornwall (George Freeth, 'On some extracts from the Ministers Accounts, relating to the Arundell Estates in Cornwall' in Journal of the Royal Institution of Cornwall, 18 (1876), pp.285-93.) The recently published Household Accounts from Medieval England by C.M. Woolgar includes a transcript of a Dinham account (Household Accounts from Medieval England, C.M. Woolgar, Oxford University Press for the British Academy, 1992-93.). Many historians of Cornwall and the south-west, however, such as Charles Henderson, Richard Pearse Chope, The Book of Hartland and A.L. Rowse, wrote their works without having studied the Arundell archive.
There is also no evidence that N. Denholm-Young, Richard of Cornwall used the documents for his work Richard of Cornwall which makes no reference to the archive, even in the author's own copy of the book which contains annotations made some years after publication.

Arrangement The Arrangement of the Archive
The long period of time over which the archive was created, its subsequent travels and its rearrangement in the early nineteenth century resulted in the original sytem in which the documents were kept, if ever there formally was one, being lost. There are indications of past arrangements for parts of the archive, such as bundles of related items and endorsed numbers and letters, but not of any for the whole archive or even its bulk and much material was in complete disorder.
The present arrangement is based on the recommended archival arrangement of estate papers, (Journal of the Society of Archivists, Vol 13, No 1, Spring 1992) adapted in the light of information provided by the documents themselves about how the Arundells ran their estate. The aim has been to reflect the history of the Arundells and their lands while also creating an arrangement which will help users of the archive to find what they require.
The medieval section of the archive has been catalogued in far more detail than most of the later material, some of the documents being translated or transcribed almost in full. Many of the later leases ( AR/4 and AR/5) and eighteenth century tin and mining records ( AR/14) have also been listed in detail. Much of the later material from miscellaneous boxes has been briefly bundle-listed and so often appears in general sections of the catalogue although more detailed listing in the future may enable some of it to be placed under individual manors.
Several sections of the archive ( AR/1, AR/2, AR/3, AR/4 and AR/5) are organised by manor. In these cases the manors are arranged, within each county, in the order of their acquisition by the Arundells (See The Arundell Estate above).

Administrative history:
The Arundell Family
A.L. Rowse described the Arundells as 'the richest and best-beloved of all Cornish families' (Tudor Cornwall, p. 16.) in Tudor times. From small beginnings in the early 1200s, when their only possession was the manor of Treloy in St Columb Major parish, they reached the height of their wealth and influence in the late sixteenth century with twenty-eight manors in Cornwall as well as manors and other properties in Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire, the greatest extent of their land-holdings.
The earliest record of an Arundell in Cornwall is in 1131 in the Pipe Roll but no connection can be demonstrated between that individual and the later Arundells of Lanherne. An Arundell occurs in Dorset and Somerset in Domesday Book and there are also instances of the name in Devon in the Middle Ages but again there is no evidence to link these people with the Cornish Arundells. The Devonshire manors of Morchard Arundell and Uton Arundell received their affixes from their ownership by the Cornish family.
The Arundells extended their land-holdings and rose to prominence through a series of good marriages to wealthy heiresses. Some of their property was purchased but the majority was acquired in this way from the mid-thirteenth century to the late 1500s. Between these dates the Arundells were active locally and nationally. Ralph Arundell was sheriff of Cornwall in 1259-60 and John Arundell became Bishop of Exeter in 1502. Sir John Arundell fought for Henry VI at the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471 and his grandson was one of those appointed to put down the Cornish rebellion of 1497-8. Two Arundells served as stewards of the Duchy of Cornwall in the sixteenth century and Arundells led Royalist troops during the Civil War. Branches of the family were established at Trerice and Tolverne by younger sons in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The influence of the Arundells declined after the Reformation, when their staunch adherence to Catholicism made them ineligible for public office, but they remained prominent in Cornwall as long as they retained their lands there.
The direct male line of the family died out in 1701, the estates being inherited by an heiress and then in 1739 passing to the Wardour Arundells on the marriage of Mary Arundell to her distant cousin Henry Arundell, later seventh Baron of Wardour. From the late seventeenth century the family had ceased to live permanently in Cornwall and when financial problems struck the Cornish estates were at first heavily mortgaged and then, in the late 18th century, began to be sold.
The following is an account of the direct descent of the family, noting the additions of land to the estate. The evidence for the 14th century is not very clear and there may have been another John Arundell at that time.
Remfrey Arundell I; floruit 1230-50; in possession of Treloy manor in circa 1230; possibly married to Maud.
Ralph Arundell son of Remfrey; sheriff in 1259-60; took possession of Restormel Castle on behalf of Thomas de Tracy in July 1265; married Eve de la Roche in 1242 x 1245 and was given Trembleath manor by Eve's father Sir Richard de la Roche (Rupe) in circa 1255 [Trembleath became the family's principal residence in the later thirteenth and the fourteenth centuries]; purchased Mitchell manor in circa 1270; died Aug 1275 x Feb 1276.
Remfrey Arundell II son of Ralph [?; the sole evidence that he was Ralph's son is that Odo his brother and executor in 1281 was son of Eve]; married in 1265 x 1268 Alice de Lanhern the heiress to Connerton manor, the Hundred of Penwith, Lanherne manor, land in St Columb Major and, in Devon, the manors of Morchard Arundell and Uton Arundell; died 1278 x 1281. Alice remarried in 1285-6 to John de Umfraville and consequently Alice's inheritance did not revert to the Arundells until after her death, in 1302 x 1311, and that of her second husband, in 1311 x 1322.
John Arundell I son of Remfrey II; asserted his title to a market and fair at Mitchell in 1302 (Quo Warranto, p.109b); married Joan, daughter and heiress of Ralph le Soor (this marriage resulted in the Arundells acquiring the manors of Prospidnick and Tolverne in the early 15th century); died 1306 x 1309.
John Arundell II son of John I; inherited lands of Alice de Lanherne in 1311 x 1322; knighted by July 1334; died ?
John Arundell III son of John II; born not before 1288; in 1334 married Elizabeth Carminow (this marriage resulted in the Arundells acquiring the Carminow inheritance over sixty years later); knighted by 1371; married Isabel daughter of Sir Thomas de Molton by 1371; died Oct 1374 x Feb 1376.
John Arundell IV son of John III ?; known as Sir John Arundell of Treloy; married Joan Luscott in 1362 x 1367 which brought to the Arundells (after the deaths of Joan and her second husband Sir William Lambourn in 1397 x 1407) the Devonshire manors of Battishorne, Darracott, Gratton, Loddiswell, Ideford, and Spreacombe and land in Buckland Dinham and Luscott; died 1372 x 1376, predeceasing his father.
John Arundell V son of John IV (his elder brother Ralph died a minor in 1382-3); born circa 1366; inherited manors of Carminow, Kennall and Winnington and advowsons of Philleigh and Whitstone in 1396 as a result of his grandfather's marriage in 1334; knighted in 1399; by 1407 had inherited property in Devon from his mother Joan Luscott; served in navy 1418-19; married Annora Lambourn which brought to the Arundells the manors of Goran, Lambourn, Lanhadron, Penwerris and Tregarne Condurrow; died 11th January 1435.
John Arundell VI son of John Arundell 'of Bideford' who died circa 1424 and grandson of John V; born circa 1421; married by April 1446 to Elizabeth daughter of Thomas, Earl of Morley; married in 1451 Katherine Chideock, the widow of William Stafford, which brought to the family (after death without issue in 1469 of Katherine's son Humphrey Stafford) extensive lands in Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire; knighted between December 1464 and November 1465; had purchased lands in Carvedras held of Newham manor by 1467 68; purchased Perlees manor in circa 1470; fought for King Henry VI at the Battle of Tewkesbury in May 1471; died between July 1471 and December 1473.
Thomas Arundell son of John VI; born circa 1452; married in 1473 Katherine Dinham which brought to the Arundells in 1501 (on the death of Katherine's brother John, Lord Dinham) a quarter-share in the Cornish manors of Bodardle, Cardinham, Downinney and Gurlyn as well as in manors in Devon, Somerset, Oxfordshire and elsewhere; knighted in 1483; attainted in 1484 for rebelling against King Richard III; died 1st October 1485.
John Arundell VII son of Thomas Arundell; born circa 1474; appointed to put down Cornish revolt of 1497; acquired Dinham inheritance in 1501; knighted by 1501; married Elizabeth daughter of Thomas Grey, Marquis of Dorset, who died between February 1502 and December 1503 [AR/20/36 and AR/27/4]; in 1506 married Katherine Graynfeld; his son Thomas (died 1552) purchased Wardour Castle in Wiltshire and founded a junior branch of the family there; died 8th February 1545.
John Arundell VIII son of John VII; born circa 1500; married Elizabeth Danet in 1525; died 7th November 1557.
John Arundell IX son of John VIII; born circa 1530; married, by August 1560, Ann, widow of Charles Lord Stourton and daughter of Thomas Stanley, Earl of Derby; knighted between 1565 and 1567; in December 1575 purchased from the Earl of Oxford the Cornish manors of Bejowan, Domellick, Roseworthy, Tregenna, Tregorrick and Tresithney; in 1587 purchased the manor of Newland Preeze; died 17th November 1590.

Families Connected with the Arundells
Arches
See under Dinham.
Arundell of Trerice
This was a junior branch of the Arundells of Lanherne which appears to have been established in the fourteenth century, probably by a younger son. According to Carew's Survey of Cornwall a Ralph Arundell married Jane/Joan, the daughter of Michael Trerise, during the reign of Edward III. Compare Public Record Office JUST I/1476, mem.73 dorse, July 1367 in which the defendants include Ralph Arundell of Treres and Joan his wife. AR/1/104 is a grant from Sir John Arundell to Ralph Arundell of Trerys in 1358. This Ralph died between July and November 1369 (AR/1/241; AR/32/1 and AR/1/846), and had at least two sons, Nicholas (AR/41/6) and Thomas (AR/41/5), and a daughter Joan (AR/32/1). There is no record of the split in the Lanherne archive and unfortunately the archive of the Arundells of Trerice has disappeared virtually without trace.
In 1664 Richard Arundell was created Baron Arundell of Trerice. The title became extinct in 1773 on the death without issue of his great-grandson John.
John Arundell XII married Anna/Anne Arundell of Trerice as his second wife. She had previously been married to a Trevanion and AR/17/118-125 concern provision made for her children by this marriage.
Bellings
In 1671 Frances Arundell, the daughter and heiress of the last Sir John Arundell, married Sir Richard Bellings, son of the Irish historian Richard Bellings. They had at least four children: Charles who died in 1710, Richard who became the heir and assumed the name Arundell in accordance with his grandfather's will (he is usually referred to as Richard Bellings Arundell), John who survived Richard and married Mary Compton, and Mary who became Lady Hales. Lady Frances Bellings died in 1714 and Sir Richard in 1716.
The estates of the Bellings included much land in Ireland and there is correspondence in the archive relating to this. Sir Richard was Comptroller of the Household of Queen Catherine of Braganza, wife of Charles II, apparently from the time of her marriage in 1662 until her death in 1705. In October 1662 he went to Rome to deliver letters to the Pope and leading cardinals concerning the condition of Portugal. The archive contains records of this office.
Bere
The Bere family lived in St Ervan and two members, George Bere senior and junior, served consecutively as steward of the Arundell estates in Cornwall in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. It is unclear at what date George Bere junior succeeded his father. He had probably done so by 1698 at which date George Bere senior was still alive as his son is referred to as 'the younger' (AR/34/7). George Bere junior died in 1720 (AR/34/12; cf. AR/50/11) having served four generations of the Arundells. The bulk of the estate correspondence from the late 1600s until 1720 is either to or from him. This estate correspondence, includes letters to and from other members of the Bere family in London and Devon (See note to AR/10 under The Arrangement of the Archive).
Trerovell in St Ervan came into the hands of the Bere family as early as 1284 (Cornwall Feet of Fines, I, no. 289; AR/1/951) and the Trerovell deeds in the archive (AR/1/949 - 960) seem to be present because of the 17th - 18th century connection between the Beres and the Arundells. There is no evidence that Trerovell was ever an Arundell property. Similarly there are several 18th century documents about lands in Newlyn in Paul, often connected with the Beres, although there are also instances of the Arundells receiving rent from these properties. It is possible that the Arundells bought these tenements from the Beres or administered them on their behalf for a short while.
Cardinham
See under Dinham.
Carminow
On 21st February 1396 the heiress Joan Carminow died, a minor aged 10 or 11 (Cal. Ipms, XVII, 241-42, no. 615). She was the last of the main line of the Carminows although junior branches of the family continued through until at least the mid-seventeenth century. As a result of her death the Carminow estates were split between the Arundells of Lanherne and the Trevarthians of Trevarthian in St Hilary. The archive contains two copies of the deed dividing the estates, a calendar-entry of which is also in print (AR/1/192; Public Record Office Catalogue of Ancient Deeds IV, A. 10409). In the case of the Arundells this occurred as a result of a marriage more than 60 years earlier between Elizabeth de Carminow (sister of Joan's great-grandfather Roger de Carminow) and John Arundell III (grandfather of John Arundell V who inherited the lands in 1396); in John Trevarthian's case, his father had married Maud, sister to Elizabeth and Roger.
Chideock
In 1451 John Arundell VI married, as his second wife, Katherine Chideock of Chideock in Dorset. She and her sister Margaret were coheiresses of their father John Chideock who died in 1444 x 1450. Katherine's first marriage, to William Stafford, had produced a son, Humphrey, who would have expected to inherit her lands. Humphrey was created earl of Devon by King Edward IV in 1469 (and so was on the opposing side to the Arundells in the Wars of the Roses, for they were Lancastrians) and died three months later without issue. The Arundells thus acquired Katherine's inheritance of estates in Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire (See AR/2/1229). Katherine died in 1478 x 1480.
Dinham
In about 1473 Thomas Arundell married Katherine Dinham, sister of John Lord Dinham. The Dinhams were very prominent and wealthy in Devon, with extensive lands in the south-west and further afield, although Thomas Arundell cannot have expected to inherit much, if anything, as Katherine was one of nine children. Remarkably, all four brothers died without living issue, John Lord Dinham himself being the last in January 1501, and the Dinham estates were inherited by the four surviving sisters or their heirs. In addition to Sir John Arundell, son and heir of Katherine and Thomas Arundell, these were: Margery, wife of Sir Edmund Carew of Mohun's Ottery, son and heir of Nicholas, Baron Carew; Elizabeth Lady Fitzwarin, later to marry Sir Thomas Brandon as her third husband; and Joan Lady Zouche, wife of John Lord Zouche.
The Dinham lands were not split between the four coheirs but continued to be run as a single estate, known as 'Dinham's Lands', with the yearly revenue being divided. This arrangement was still in operation in 1566 when a survey of the lands was drawn up for Henry Compton, by then one of the coheirs (Devon Record Office, Z17/3/19; microfilm no. MFC 70/1-7; copy of the microfilm in Cornwall Record Office, FS 4/1).
In addition to their share in the estate the Arundells seem to have acquired a considerable proportion of the Dinham family archive. The history of the Dinham family went back to the first half of the twelfth century in Devon and well before that in Brittany. It is well treated by Michael Jones, The Family of Dinan in England in the Middle Ages: La famille de Dinan en Angleterre au Moyen Age (Dinan, 1987), but three of their acquisitions and kindred families will be briefly noted here since documents connected with them appear in the archive.
(a) In 1268 the great Cornish heiress Isolda de Cardinan set about giving away her lands, presumably in the knowledge that she would die without heirs, and settled upon three main beneficiaries. Henry Champernowne received some estates, primarily Ludgvan and the secular manor of Tywardreath (AR/37/2), Richard Earl of Cornwall's portion included Restormel Castle and the Dinhams acquired the manors of Bodardle, Cardinham and Downinney. The Dinhams also received a few deeds concerning Tywardreath Priory which had been granted much property by Isolda's family. The reasons for Isolda's choice of beneficiaries are unknown: there is no evidence for any kinship between the Cardinhams and Dinhams, both of which had existed independently long before the bequest.
(b) Joyce de Dinham (died 1301) married, before April 1292, Margaret de Hydon who brought to the Dinhams the manors of Clayhidon and Hemyock in Devon. Joyce de Dinham died aged only 28 and his widow remarried, first to Sir Gilbert de Knoville, who died before 1313 (AR/1/876), and then to Peter de Uvedale (AR/1/548). Margaret was widowed for the third time by May 1337 but lived to May 1357 still using the Dinham seal (eg. AR/1/639).
Margaret de Hydon acquired from her second husband, Gilbert de Knoville, a life interest in the Devonshire manors of Battishorne, Ideford and Loddiswell, manors which the Arundells later inherited from the Luscotts (Joan Luscott was a coheir of Gilbert de Knoville). Some deeds connected with these properties probably entered the archive through the Dinhams in 1501 rather than through the Luscotts in circa 1400 (AR/1/548 concerns Battishorne; AR/1/553 was executed at Loddiswell and AR/1/1038-9 at Ideford).
(c) John Dinham (c.1406-58), father of the nine men and women who formed the last generation of the Dinhams, married Joan Arches of Oxfordshire. She outlived her husband by nearly forty years, dying in 1497, only four years before her last son, John Lord Dinham. Joan brought to the family lands in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, a share in which later came from the Dinhams to the Arundells, although they do not seem to have been reckoned part of 'Dinham's lands' and do not appear in the 1566 survey. The Dinhams had already possessed lands in those areas from at least the fourteenth century. The Arundells retained an interest in some of these places although their quarter-shares in others were sold in a tidy-up of the estates in 1576 (AR/1/711, AR/1/713-717, AR/1/837-838).
Fitzpayne
Isabella, daughter of Robert Fitzpayne (or 'son of Pagan'), married Sir John Chideock (died 1365-66) and thus brought the Fitzpayne lands and documents to the Chideock family and thence to the Arundells. The 'de Wudetune' family, who also appear in the archive, were ancestors of the Fitzpaynes.
Fitzwaryn
There are two possible sources for documents about the Fitzwaryn family in the archive. Sir John Chideock (died 1415-16) married Eleanor Fitzwaryn (AR/39/2), and the Fitzwaryns had connections with various Chideock lands in Somerset and perhaps Dorset in the 14th century. In the fifteenth century one of the Dinham coheirs, Elizabeth (died 1516), had married Fouke Bourchier, Lord Fitzwaryn (died 1479), as one of her husbands. Therefore documents referring to the Fitzwaryn family could have entered the archive via the Chideocks or via the Dinhams.
Gifford
In 1733 Frances Arundell, eldest daughter of Richard Bellings Arundell, married Sir John Gifford of Burstall in Leicestershire. They had no children; Sir John died in 1736 and Lady Frances in 1752. The Gifford estate included lands in Leicestershire, Cambridgeshire, Kent, Essex and possibly in Italy, much of which was bequeathed to Sir John's sister, Mary Anne Gifford.
Hydon
See under Dinham.
Lambourn
The connections between the Arundells and the Lambourn family are somewhat involved. Sir William Lambourn first married Joan Lanhadron (by October 1374, AR/1/261) and then married Joan Luscott, widow of Sir John Arundell IV (died 1376), by July 1394 (AR/17/1-2). His daughter by his first wife, Annora Lambourn, married John Arundell V and brought to the Arundells the Lambourn and Lanhadron lands. Sir William Lambourn was still alive in 1398 (AR/4/312).
Lanhadron
The Lanhadron heiress Joan, daughter of John Lanhadron and his wife Amity, married William Lambourn (See Lambourn above). Their daughter Annora married John Arundell V and brought to the Arundells the manors of Lanhadron and Goran inherited from her mother. Joan Lanhadron may have died by July 1391 and had certainly done so by July 1394.
Lanherne
In 1265 x 1268 Remfrey Arundell II married Alice, daughter and coheiress of John de Lanhern who had died by November 1256 (It is unclear what happened to Alice's sister Margery). Alice inherited from her father Lanherne manor and probably the Devon manors of Morchard [Arundell] and Uton [Arundell], all held of the Bishop of Exeter, and from her mother Margery Pincerna (See Pincerna below) the manor of Connerton and Hundred of Penwith. Remfrey had died by 1281 and Alice married in 1284 x 1286 John de Umfraville of Devon, retaining her inheritance. It was not until after the deaths of Alice (between 1302 and 1311) and John de Umfraville (between 1311 and 1322) that these lands reverted to the Arundells.
Luscott
Sir John Arundell IV married before November 1367 Joan Luscott (born July 1353), the daughter of William Luscott and his first wife, Alice. They had at least two sons, the second one, John, eventually becoming the heir (Cal.Ipms, XVI, no. 507). Joan brought with her lands in Devon including the manors of Battishorne, Ideford and Loddiswell. She was apparently one of three coheiresses and there were later lawsuits to sort out the estates (AR/16/7, 17/70, 17/72-73, 41/10).
After John Arundell IV died, predeceasing his father, Joan remained in possession of her inheritance, residing at Lanherne and Loddiswell. Both her sons were still minors. By July 1394 Joan was remarried, to Sir William Lambourn (See Lambourn above), taking her inheritance with her and it was not until after the deaths of Joan and Sir William (after 1398 and before September 1407, and possibly before 1401; AR/4/312, AR/20/16-17 and AR/17/70) that the lands reverted to Joan's son, John Arundell V.
Pincerna
In circa 1240 Margery Pincerna married John de Lanhern (See Lanherne above) bringing with her Welcombe in Devon as a gift from her father, Richard. She later inherited from him the manor of Connerton and Hundred of Penwith which her daughter Alice took on marriage to the Arundells. Margery was still alive in August 1260 (Register of Bishop Bronescombe, 52 and 162).
Roche
In 1242 x 1245 Ralph Arundell married Eve de la Roche (or 'de Rupe'), daughter of Richard and Agnes de la Roche, and in circa 1255 they were granted the manors of Trembleath and Tredrizzick by Eve's father. Richard de la Roche was still alive in 1262 (Feet of Fines 183) and his widow Agnes was still alive in 1283 (AR/45).
Robert de la Roche, son and heir of Richard and brother of Eve, was knighted between 1262 and 1283 (AR/1/72 and AR/45) and was still alive in circa 1300 (AR/1/100).
The Roche family is sometimes called Tremoddrett, from their residence at Tremoddrett in Roche parish.
Soor
According to The Visitations of Cornwall, edited by Lieutenant-Colonel J. L. Vivian (The Visitations of Cornwall, p.2) John Arundell I married Joan, daughter of Ralph le Soor, in circa 1290. As a result of this marriage the Arundells inherited the manors of Prospidnick and Tolverne after the death of Ralph Soor in 1409 x 1417. Bodwannick was also a Soor manor but seems to have gone to the Colyns family before being acquired by the Arundells by the year 1464.
Stourton
The Arundells had two connections with the Stourtons. In the 15th century Margaret Chideock, the sister and coheir of the Katherine Chideock who married John Arundell VI, married Sir William Stourton. In the 16th century Sir John Arundell IX married (by August 1560) Ann, the daughter of Thomas Stanley, Earl of Derby, and the widow of Charles Lord Stourton who was executed in 1557.
The Arundell Estate
At its greatest extent the Arundell estate contained areas of land scattered throughout Cornwall but was particularly strong in the centre and west of the county. The tenements of the earliest holdings, the manors of Treloy and Trembleath, were concentrated in the parishes along the central northern coast and the Arundell presence in this area was strengthened by the acquisition of Mitchell, Lanherne and St Columb. The inheritance of Connerton manor and the Hundred of Penwith, the only Cornish hundred in private hands, brought pre-eminent influence in the west of the county. The Carminow inheritance delivered to the Arundells property in areas which were to become important for tin-mining. Influence in the south and centre of the county was increased by the Lambourn and Dinham inheritances and confirmed by the purchase of the Earl of Oxford manors and of Newland Preeze. Mitchell was the only Cornish borough held by the Arundells; St Columb never obtained formal borough status although it had many of the attributes of a medieval borough and is sometimes so termed.
The Arundell property in Devon was concentrated in the east of the county and the north-west, with the isolated manors of Loddiswell and Langford Lester in the south west and Dunterton on the border with Cornwall. As part of their Dinham inheritance the Arundells held a quarter share in the manor, borough and hundred of Hartland.
The eighteen Dorset manors, all inherited from the Chideocks, were in the east and north of the county apart from Winterbourne Houghton in the centre. The manor of Chideock became the second seat of the Arundell family after Lanherne.
In Somerset the Arundell manors were in the south except for Buckland Dinham in the west. The family also owned manors, or shares in manors, in Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Warwickshire and Wiltshire.
The following notes give for each manor: the dates when acquired by the Arundells and when sold by them; the parishes where the manorial centre and other tenements were located; any points of note about the manor and individual tenements, particularly those acquired or lost at a different date from the main manor. The manors are listed by county in the order of their acquisition by the Arundells.
Cornwall
Manor of Treloy: appears in possession of Arundells in early thirteenth century, held indirectly of Bodmin Priory to which it had belonged since before 1066. Tenements sold off piecemeal in late 18th century.
Manorial centre was in St Columb Minor; tenements also in St Allen, St Columb Major, Crantock, Cuby, Kea, Kenwyn, Mawgan in Pydar, St Minver and Perranzabuloe.
The manorial affiliation of Bohago in Cuby is unclear and it has been placed under Treloy because of its close association with Gargas in Cuby which was a free tenement of Treloy.
Penpoll in Crantock was a initially a sub-manor of Treloy, having its own manorial account in the 1390s, but was later treated as a tenement of Treloy. In the catalogue Penpoll's tenements of Mingham and Treviglas have been treated as tenements of Treloy.
Penryn in St Gluvias was partly acquired by gift in 1412 and partly through the Lambourn inheritance in circa 1435.
Treglyn (or possibly Treglines) in St Minver was acquired by gift of Roger de Trewelwart in circa 1260 and held of Blisland manor as a tenement of Treloy.
Trelease in Kea was acquired in 1501 and held of Treloy from the late sixteenth century.
Treninnick in St Columb Minor was acquired in circa 1255 and held as a free tenement of Treloy although one document shows it being held of Lanherne manor (AR/1/111).
Treworder in Kenwyn was granted to the Arundells by Richard Nevill in 1467 and held as a free tenement of Treloy.
Manor of Trembleath: given to the Arundells in circa 1255 by Sir Richard de Roche following the marriage of his daughter Eve to Ralph Arundell. Some tenements sold in late 18th century; remainder of manor sold to Francis Cross of Crediton, Devon, in early 19th century. Trembleath was the principal residence of the Arundells in the later thirteenth and fourteenth centuries until they moved to Lanherne.
Manorial centre was in St Ervan; tenements also in St Columb Minor, Crantock, Egloshayle, St Eval, St Kew, St Merryn, St Minver and Roche.
A tenement in St Ervan churchtown was purchased from John Corffe in 1597 and held as a tenement of Trembleath.
The manor of Lemail in Egloshayle was acquired in Circa 1260 by grant from Gilbert de Foresta and held as a free tenement of Trembleath. Tredrizzick in St Minver, which was given to the Arundells at the same time as Trembleath, was initially called a manor although later found as a free tenement of Trembleath.
Manor of Mitchell: purchased from Peter de Ralegh in circa 1270; sold in March 1775 to the Scawens of Carshalton, Surrey. In 1239 Mitchell had been granted a yearly fair and weekly market by royal charter and by 1305 it was being termed a borough (burgus). In 1552 Mitchell acquired parliamentary representation. There are Mitchell documents dating from the 13th century to 1641 at Gloucestershire Record Office: D.421/A2/1-25.
Manorial centre was in St Enoder; tenements also in Newlyn East.
Manor of Connerton and the Hundred of Penwith: came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1320 as a result of the marriage of Remfrey Arundell to Alice de Lanherne in circa 1268. Alice had inherited Connerton and Penwith from her mother Margaret Pincerna and they reverted to the Arundell line after the deaths of Alice and her second husband John Umfraville. Sold in 1813 to Sir Christopher Hawkins.
Manorial centre was in Gwithian; tenements also in Crowan, Gulval, Gwinear, St Ives, Lelant, Phillack and Welcombe parish in Devon. Lordship of the Hundred of Penwith (the only Cornish hundred in private hands) gave the Arundells the rights to try certain cases of trespass, trespass on the law, debt and detinue, to appoint a jailor for the detention of persons apprehended, to receive high-rent from the lords of the principal manors and to claim the regalia of the navigable rivers and havens, the profits of the royal gold and silver mines, and all wrecks, escheats, deodands, treasure trove, waifs, estrays, goods of felons and droits of admiralty happening within the hundred.
Penpoll in Phillack was a sub-manor of Connerton and had its own accounts for one year. It was occasionally termed a manor and its tenements included Hendra and Rinsey in Breage.
Land at Welcombe in Hartland hundred, Devon, had been granted to Margaret Pincerna at her marriage to John de Lanherne in circa 1240. This holding was later held of Connerton manor, anomalously but for understandable reasons.
Manor of Lanherne: came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1320 as a result of the marriage of Remfrey Arundell to Alice de Lanherne in circa 1268 (See Manor of Connerton above). Tenements sold off piecemeal from mid 17th century and manor sold in 1803 but Lanherne mansion house granted to Carmelite nuns in 1794 and some tenements still owned by Arundells at very end of 19th century.
Manorial centre in St Mawgan in Pydar; tenements also in St Columb Major, St Columb Minor and St Eval.
Land at Carlogas and Gilton was purchased from John Hawkyn in 1586 and held of the royal manor of Carnanton.
Land near Carnanton Mill was acquired in 1581 from William Kellway and a tenement of Carnanton manor (a royal manor) was held of Lanherne later in the sixteenth century. These holdings appear to be separate from the farm of Carnanton manor which the Arundells leased in the sixtenth century.
Land in St Columb Major was at first reckoned as part of Lanherne Manor until St Columb became a manor in its own right in the mid 14th century. Even after St Columb was termed a manor, however, there are instances of tenements in St Columb town being held of Lanherne. Gluvian was purchased from Nicholas Flamanck in 1600.
Manor of St Columb: originally reckoned as part of Lanherne manor, first termed a manor in its own right in 1333 although there are still references to the 'manor' of Lanherne and St Columb in the mid 15th century. Sold to Thomas Rawlings of Padstow in circa 1806. The Arundells never obtained formal borough status for St Columb although it had many of the attributes of a medieval borough and is sometimes so termed (eg. AR/2/181 c.8).
Manorial centre and all tenements were in St Columb Major, the majority in St Columb town.
Manor of Carminow: came into the lordship of the Arundells in 1396 as a result of the marriage in 1334 of John Arundell to Elizabeth Carminow; sold to John Rogers of Penrose in 1801 (Cornwall Record Office, AD 1060/15). Manorial centre was in St Mawgan in Meneage; tenements also in Breage, Constantine, Cury, Gunwalloe, Helston town.
The advowsons of the churches of Whitstone and Philleigh were part of the Carminow inheritance and thus glebe land in those places was administered as part of Carminow manor.
Treloweth Wood in St Mewan was part of the Carminow inheritance and is often associated with other tenements of Carminow manor although its manorial affiliation, if any, is unclear.
Manor of Kennall: came into the lordship of the Arundells in 1396 as part of the Carminow inheritance (See Carminow manor above); sold in 1800 to the Bath brothers and then to the Williams.
Manorial centre and all tenements were in Stithians.
Manor of Winnington: came into the lordship of the Arundells in 1396 as part of the Carminow inheritance (See Carminow manor above); sold to John Rogers of Penrose in 1801 (Cornwall Record Office, AD 1060/15).
Manorial centre was in Gunwalloe; tenements also in Grade and Ruan Major.
Manor of Truro Vean: acquired, probably by purchase, by 1407; tenements sold off from 1783 to 1803, Truro Vean itself being bought by Joseph Edwards of Kenwyn (Cornwall Record Office, SHM 526/1, 2).
By 1451 Truro Vean was being termed a manor.
Manorial centre was in St Clement; tenements also in Kenwyn and Truro town, and possibly St Columb Major.
Tregatillian in St Columb Major is listed as a tenement of Truro Vean in 1499 (AR/2/1340) but is also found as a tenement of Perlees and Trevean manors.
The Arundells held other land in Truro which was not part of Truro Vean manor (see Carvedras) and in medieval documents the manorial affiliation of some tenements is unclear. There seems to have been some rationalisation of administration in the post-medieval period - Newham Street, which was a conventionary tenement of Treloy manor in 1460 (AR/2/1337/3), was being treated as a tenement of Truro Vean manor by the mid 17th century.
Manor of Prospidnick: came into the lordship of the Arundells in 1409 x 1417 as a result of the marriage in the late 13th century of John Arundell I and Joan le Soor; sold in late 18th century to Christopher Wallis.
Manorial centre in Sithney; tenements also in Constantine and Helston town.
Prospidnick (along with the manors of Bodbrane, Pengwedna and Reperry) was made part of the endowment for the Arundell Chantry established in St Columb Major in 1427 and consequently appears little in the early documentation.
Manor of Tolverne: came into the lordship of the Arundells in 1409 x 1417 as part of the Soor inheritance (See Prospidnick manor above); in 1427 Sir John Arundell gave Tolverne to his second son Thomas who founded there the line of the Arundells of Tolverne. Tolverne was attacked by Yorkists in 1474, the Arundells being Lancastrians. The family became impoverished and in 1598 sold Tolverne, moving to Truthall in Sithney. Tolverne has been a farm ever since.
Manorial centre in Philleigh; tenements also in St Just in Roseland and Veryan.
Manor of Pengwedna: purchased [?] by 1433-4; sold in the late 18th century to ?
Manorial centre and all tenements in Breage.
Pengwedna (along with the manors of Bodbrane, Prospidnick and Reperry) was made part of the endowment for the Arundell Chantry established in St Columb Major in 1427 and consequently appears little in the early documentation.
Manor of Reperry: purchased [?] by 1433-4; sold in late 18th century to E.J. Glynn, esquire.
Manorial centre in Lanivet; tenements also in Bodmin town, St Columb Major, St Issey, St Wenn and Withiel.
Reperry (along with the manors of Bodbrane, Pengwedna and Prospidnick) was made part of the endowment for the Arundell Chantry established in St Columb Major in 1427 and consequently appears little in the early documentation.
Manor of Enniscaven: purchased [?] by 1433-4; sold in the late 18th century/early 19th century to Thomas Rawlings.
Manorial centre and all tenements in St Dennis.
Manor of Bodbrane: purchased from John Billon [?] by 1433-4 (in the Trelawny deeds, now at the Royal Institution of Cornwall, John Billon of Trethewell appears as lord of Bodbrane in 1398; in 1429 Sir John Arundell made an enfeoffment of Bodbrane tenements to several people including the reversion of a life interest acquired from Billon); sold to Joseph Grigg in late 18th century.
Manorial centre in Duloe; tenement also in Menheniot. Bodbrane (along with the manors of Pengwedna, Prospidnick and Reperry) was made part of the endowment for the Arundell Chantry established in St Columb Major in 1427 and consequently appears little in the early documentation.
Lands in Bodmin appear to have been held of Bodbrane manor (AR/2/1338/2).
Manor of Lambourn: acquired by 1431 through marriage of John Arundell V to Annora Lambourn; given by John Arundell V to his third son Remfrey (Lake) and then lost (together with Tregustick manor, q.v.) from the Arundells to Remfrey's son, Remfrey junior, and his mother Joan Nanfan after a law-suit in 1456-57 (AR/17/75-6, AR/20/21) Manorial centre in Perranzabuloe; tenements also in Redruth and possibly in Gwinear and Sithney.
Manor of Lanhadron: acquired by 1431 through marriage of John Arundell V to Annora Lambourn; sold off in parcels in the early 19th century, Lanhadron Barton being bought by the Reverend Henry Hawkins Tremayne in 1801.
Manorial centre in St Ewe; tenements also in Creed, Goran and St Mewan and possibly St Ervan.
Goran manor was associated with Lanhadron from circa 1290 and became Lanhadron's sub-manor in circa 1380. Goran and its tenements of Cotna, Menagwins and Penhale are treated here as tenements of Lanhadron.
Ninnis and Retanning may only have been acquired in 1685 (see AR/4/1444). They seem to have been short-term acquisitions as they do not appear on the 1717 rental (Royal Institution of Cornwall, Brooks 35).
Rescassa in Goran was acquired in 1459 from Ralph Tripcunyn in exchange for lands in St Columb Major.
Land and woods in Sticker in St Mewan were acquired in 1458 from Ralph Reskimmer. Property in Sticker had been a part of the Carminow estate which was inherited by the Trevarthians.
Treloweth manor in St Mewan was acquired in 1459 from Philip Kerow and treated as a tenement of Lanhadron.
Trelowith Wood was acquired in 1396 as part of the Carminow inheritance but was often associated with nearby Sticker Wood and came to be treated as a tenement of Lanhadron.
Trenouth in St Ervan was probably a late acquisition, as it does not appear in the medieval documents, and its manorial affiliation is unclear. The 1708 draft lease of Trenouth was originally kept with Lanhadron leases and endorsed 'Nansladron' (an alternative name for Lanhadron) in the 1930s doubtless due to confusion of 'Trenowith' with Trelowith in St Mewan.
Manor of Tregarne Condurrow: acquired by 1431 through marriage of John Arundell V to Annora Lambourn; sold in 1837 to the Lemon family. Manorial centre in St Keverne and St Anthony in Meneage (merger of the originally separate manors of Tregarne and Condurrow); tenements also in Manaccan and St Martin in Meneage.
Manor of Tregustick: lands at Tregustick acquired by 1322 (AR/4/183), held at first not as part of any manor but elevated to manorial status by 1442 (AR/2/888). Tregustick was given by John Arundell to his son Remfrey in 1421 (AR/19/2) and then allotted (together with Lambourn manor, q.v.) to Remfrey's son, Remfrey junior, and his mother Joan Nanfan after a law-suit in 1456-57 (AR/17/75-6, AR/20/21).
Manorial centre in Withiel; tenements also in St Wenn.
Manor of Bodwannick: acquired by 1464, although how is unclear. Bodwannick had belonged to the Soor family. On the death of the Ralph Soor in 1409 x 1417 it appears to have passed to the Colyns family and from them to the Arundells. Sold to E.J. Glynn, esquire, in the late 18th century.
Manorial centre in Lanivet; tenements also in Lanhydrock and possibly Bodmin.
Carvedras in Kenwyn (not a manor but lands held of Newham manor): acquired by 1458-9 when accounted separately from Truro Vean (AR/2/904); unclear when lost - last separate account is for 1474-5. These lands could not have been part of Truro Vean manor because that was carved out of Moresk manor in St Clement, not Newham manor based in Kenwyn.
Manor of Perlees: purchased between 1470 and 1499; sold to Thomas Rawlings, esquire, of Padstow in late 18th/early 19th century. It seems to be mere coincidence that Ralph Arundell was granted the homage and service of Philip de Penles for one and a half acres in Tregawne in circa 1260.
Manorial centre was in St Breock; tenements also in St Columb Major, St Ervan, St Eval, St Issey, St Merryn, Padstow, Little Petherick and possibly Cubert and Withiel.
Tregatillian in St Columb Major is listed as a tenement of Truro Vean manor in 1499 (AR/2/1340) but is also associated with Perlees. Its deeds and leases have been placed under Perlees. It is also found as a tenement of Trevean manor (q.v.).
Manor of Colquite: perhaps a temporary possession of the Arundells in the 1470s (AR/2/426, AR/2/448). Colquite was in the fee of Cardinham, however, and so the Dinhams may have held it briefly during the minority of an heir and been the source of the Colquite documents in the archive.
Manorial centre was in St Mabyn.
Manor of Bodardle: a quarter-share acquired by the Arundells in 1501 as a result of the marriage in 1473 of Thomas Arundell to Katherine Dinham (See Dinham family above); sold to the Earls of Radnor by 1687 and thence to the Agar-Robartes of Lanhydrock (See Cornwall Record Office, CL 109 - 115 for later Bodardle records).
Manorial centre and tenements were in Lanlivery.
Trinity Barton, for which there are accounts, must have been part of this manor.
Manor of Cardinham: a quarter-share was acquired by the Arundells in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Bodardle manor above); sold in 1800 to Edmund John Glynn, esquire.
Cardinham Fee (the group of manors held of Cardinham) was of extensive jurisdiction with holdings in Cornwall and Devon and the Arundells gradually increased their share in it. The Carews sold their quarter to the Comptons from whence it passed to the Arundells in 1573. Edward Lord Zouch sold his portion in 1577 to William Billing of Cardinham who conveyed it to Sir John Arundell the following year. The Fitzwaryn quarter was later divided between two heiresses and in 1707 one of these portions was purchased by Sir Richard Bellings, husband of Frances Arundell. The Arundells never acquired the final eighth of the estate.
Manorial centre was in Cardinham; tenements also in St Erth (in 18th century) and possibly Warleggan.
Carnabeggas manor in St Erth and Downinney manor in Warbstow were parts of Cardinham Fee. The Arundells probably never acquired more in these manors than their quarter-shares inherited from the Dinhams and they feature little in the archive. Carnabeggas appears as a tenement of Cardinham manor in the 18th century, probably attached to that manor merely for administrative purposes. Downinney was owned by the Champernownes by 1620 (Lake) and there are records of it in Champernowne hands in 1303, 1306 and 1346 (Feudal Aids, I, pp. 201, 208 and 210).
Gurlyn manor in St Erth was part of Cardinham Fee and thus appears held of the Arundells although it does not feature largely in Dinham's lands and may not have belonged to the Dinhams. Its manorial affiliation is unclear: in the 17th century it is described as held of Pengwedna or Prospidnick (AR/3/456).
Manor of Bejowan: purchased from the Earl of Oxford in 1575-76; sold in the late 18th century to the Clemmow family ? (Lake) Manorial centre was in St Columb Minor; tenements also in Colan, St Columb Major and St Mawgan in Pydar.
Tolcarne in St Mawgan in Pydar is also found as a tenement of Treloy manor.
Manor of Domellick: purchased from the Earl of Oxford in 1575-76; sold to Thomas Rawlings in the late 18th/early 19th century. Manorial centre and all tenements were in St Dennis.
Manor of Roseworthy: purchased from the Earl of Oxford in 1575-76; sold to William Harris of Rosewarne in 1803.
Manorial centre was in Gwinear; tenements also in Crowan, St Erth and Phillack.
Manor of Tregenna: purchased from the Earl of Oxford in 1575-76; sold in late 18th century to John Gaved of St Mewan. Sometimes referred to as two manors, Tregenna Wartha and Tregenna Wollas.
Manorial centre was in St Ewe; tenements also in St Austell, Cubert, Menheniot, Probus, Veryan and Withiel.
Manor of Tregorrick: purchased from the Earl of Oxford in 1575-76; sold to Charles Rashleigh in late 18th century [?]. Manorial centre was in St Austell; tenements also in St Columb Major and St Eval.
Rosewastis in St Columb Major is also found as a tenement of Tresithney manor.
Trevemedar in St Eval is also found as a tenement of Perlees manor.
Manor of Tresithney: purchased from the Earl of Oxford in 1575-76; in 1786 given by dowager Lady Arundell to her daughter Eleanor who married Charles Lord Clifford.
Manorial centre was in St Columb Major; tenements also in Colan, Gwennap and Perranzabuloe.
Most of the lands of this manor were in Gwennap, where a new place called 'Tresithney' was created, but the manorial centre was Tresithney in St Columb Major.
Rosewastis in St Columb Major is also found as a tenement of Tregorrick manor.
Trevisker in St Eval (not part of any manor: AR/2/970): purchased in 1582 from John Brewar of St Eval; sold ?. Trevisker was granted to Remfrey Arundell in the 13th century and then apparently lost again as there is no trace of it in the archive in the later Middle Ages.
Manor of Newland Preeze: purchased from John Copping in 1587; sold ? Newland Preeze was originally part of Cardinham manor and was granted to Sir James Peverell before 1307-08 (AR/1/462). Manorial centre was in Cardinham; tenements also in Blisland and St Breward.
Trevean lands: Trevean manor in St Merryn was NOT owned by the Arundells but they appear to have purchased tenements of that manor in 1596 from Robert Kestell of St Columb Minor (AR/1/521) and in 1598 from the Teage family (AR/1/524). The early deeds of Trevean tenements must have been acquired at this time as specified in the deeds of bargain and sale. The tenements bought were Croftow, Lanhingey, Rosewastis, Tregatillian and Trethewell in St Columb Major.
Rosewastis is also found as a tenement of the manors of Carnanton, Tregorrick and Tresithney.
Tregatillian is also found as a tenement of the manors of Perlees and Truro Vean.
Buckinghamshire
Manor of Cuddington: a quarter-share acquired in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Manor of Bodardle above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1562 (AR/2/1306).
Manorial centre was in Cuddington parish.
Manor of Little Kimble: a quarter-share acquired in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Manor of Bodardle above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1562 (AR/2/1306).
Manorial centre was in Little Kimble parish.
Manor of Oving: a quarter-share acquired in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Manor of Bodardle above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1574 (AR/2/1395).
Manorial centre was in Oving parish.
Devon
Manors of Morchard Arundell and Uton Arundell: apparently came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1320 as a result of the marriage of Remfrey Arundell to Alice de Lanherne in circa 1268 (See Manor of Connerton above); some tenements of Morchard Arundell sold in 1629; Uton Arundell still in possession of the Arundells in 1609 (AR/2/1393).
Manorial centre and tenements of Morchard Arundell were in Morchard Bishop parish.
Manorial centre of Uton Arundell was in Crediton parish; tenements also in Colebrook parish.
The manors acquired their affixes through being owned by the Cornish Arundells.
Manor of Battishorne: came into lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as a result of the marriage of John Arundell to Joan Luscott in 1367 and after the deaths of Joan and her second husband (See Luscott family above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1545. Manorial centre was in Honiton parish.
'Manor of Braunton': see under manor of Luscott below.
Manor of Darracott: probably came into lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as part of Luscott inheritance (See Manor of Battishorne above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1609 (AR/2/1393) although it does not appear in John Arundell's I.P.M. of 1435. Manorial centre was in Georgeham parish.
Manor of Gratton: probably came into lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as part of Luscott inheritance (See Manor of Battishorne above); a 19th century endorsement states that Gratton was settled upon Thomas Arundell [later of Wardour] on his marriage in 1525 (20/39) but it still appears in the possession of the Lanherne Arundells in 1609 (AR/2/1393).
Manorial centre was in High Bray parish.
Manor of Ideford: came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as part of the Luscott inheritance (See Manor of Battishorne above) and included the advowson of Ideford church; still in possession of the Arundells in 1534.
Manorial centre in Ideford parish; tenements also in Ilsington parish.
Manor of Loddiswell: came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as part of the Luscott inheritance (See Manor of Battishorne above); still in possession of the Lanherne Arundells in 1609 (AR/2/1393) but by 1695 Loddiswell rectory was being leased by Wardour Arundells (AR/4/2031-2034).
Manorial centre was in Loddiswell parish.
Manor of Luscott: came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as part of the Luscott inheritance (See Manor of Battishorne above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1605.
Manorial centre was in Braunton parish.
Luscott may have been held of the manors of Braunton Gorges and Braunton Abbot and there are therefore occasional confusing references to Arundell 'ownership' of the 'manor of Braunton'.
Manor of North Buckland: probably came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as part of the Luscott inheritance (See Manor of Battishorne above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1609 (AR/2/1393).
Manorial centre was in Georgeham parish.
Generally called 'Buckland Dinham' but distinguish from Buckland
Denham manor in Somerset (See below).
Manor of Spreacombe: probably came into the lordship of the Arundells in circa 1400 as part of the Luscott inheritance (See Manor of Battishorne above); a 19th century endorsement states that it was settled upon Thomas Arundell [later of Wardour] upon his marriage in 1525 but it still appears in the possession of the Lanherne Arundells in 1609 (AR/2/1393).
Manorial centre was in Morthoe parish.
Manor of 'Clyston' [?]: a quarter-share presumably acquired in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Manor of Bodardle above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1632.
Manorial centre was in Broad Clyst parish.
The main evidence for this manor is a single court roll where it is called 'Clyston' but perhaps it should be identified with Southbrook manor in the same parish (See below).
Manor of Clayhidon: a quarter-share acquired in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Manor of Bodardle above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1583 (AR/2/1396).
Manorial centre was in Clayhidon parish.
Manor of Dunterton: a quarter-share acquired in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Manor of Bodardle above) and included the advowson of Dunterton church; still in possession of the Arundells in late 16th century.
Manorial centre was in Dunterton parish.
Manor of Harpford: a quarter-share acquired in 1501 as part of the Dinham inheritance (See Manor of Bodardle above); still in possession of the Arundells in 1609 (AR/2/1393).
Manorial centre was in Harpford parish.

Arbitration in dispute; with counterpart
William Lambron, knight = (1)
John Arundell = (2)
Decree (ordinacio) given by the Priors of Lanciston and Bodminia between (1) and (2) concerning law-suits (lites) and disagreements between them:
(1) shall pay £100 to (2) over the next two years, namely £12 10s at Michaelmas, Christmas, Easter and Nativity of St John Baptist each year; (2) shall hold all messuages, lands, tenements, rents and services which John Colyn held for term of his life in the manor of Lanhernow, in the vills of Helgollan [sic], Tregone and Helwyn; (2) shall be relieved (exoneretur) of paying 5 marks yearly of the £32 which he is bound to pay for the manor of Lanhernow for term of life of Joan wife of (1);
(2) shall surrender to (1) a charter of yearly rent of £20, made to John Arundell knight by Joan who was wife of Ralph Arundell de Trerees upon her lands [and tenements] of Lanhadron, Trerees, Seint Goran and elsewhere in Cornwall [= AR/1/846, dated Nov 1369]; (1) shall surrender to (2) two statutes of merchants made by (1)-(2) and John Tregoys to Joan Arundell now (1)'s wife and others; (1) and Joan his wife shall not alienate any manors, lands, tenements, rents or services of (2)'s inheritance, except for term of Joan's life;
(1) shall be paid the rent for the Nativity of St John Baptist last for the manor of Lanhernow, and shall remit to (2) the rent for the preceding Easter.
Seals of the two Priors [good].
Helgollan [= Engollan, in St Eval; later a tenement of Trembleath as well of Lanherne manor]
Tregone [= Tregona, in St Eval; later a tenement of Trembleath manor]
Helwyn [= Halwyn, in St Eval; later a tenement of Trembleath as well as Lanherne manor]
The counterpart is much shrunken, but the two apparently fitted together.
Engollan and 'Helwyn' (generally as a single vill) were in 1459-60 (AR/2/1337) both a free tenement of Lanherne and a conventionary tenement of Trembleath manor.
Joan Arundell, mother of this John Arundell, and by now wife of William Lambron knight, was born Joan Luscott; her husband John Arundell had died by Jan 1376 (AR/4/2020).

Note: Date: John Arundell the defendant is the one who died in 1590; a court held after the death of his father (died 7th Nov 1557) is said to have been held about 3 years ago, so this law-suit must date from about 1561; certainly before 25th Jan 1567, by which date this John Arundell had been knighted (AR/4/1622).

Letter
William Kylligrewe; from the court
Thomas Randall
[Copy] When last in Cornwall I forgot to discuss with you the controversy between your court and Sir John Arundell in Penwith and Kir'. I delivered to Lord Bedford the answer to Sir John Arundell's articles which you sent me last year; but he has not been able to consider them. Until he can direct me (and because of his office I must follow his direction in such a case pertaining to Her Majesty's right), I ask and earnestly advise you to let Sir John and his officer continue his office, as they have previously done. For I would not, for twice the gain that I could get by troubling him (especially now that he is unable to follow his business as he has in the past) be the occasion of troubling him, or give him just cause to think any unkindness in me, or be the instrument of taking from him any right due to him. As I am bound to maintain the Queen's right, please see that no occasion of just offence is taken against you or me by Sir John or his friends; and I am sure that his officers will have similar respect to us. Please act so that there shall be no more strife.
[Added later] I send you enclosed Sir John Arundell's letter, so that you can see how much he finds himself aggrieved. Please remedy it as you can without wrong to yourself. Doubtless his officer aggravates matters to him, more than there is cause. [3rd Oct 1584; from the court] I wrote asking you not to proceed against Sir John Arundell concerning his liberties in Penwith. Now he informs me that you caused £5 to be levied of a suitor to his court. Please deal with him as with any good friend, and quickly tell me why you have proceeded against the suitor.

(2)-(3), as bailiffs of John Arundell esquire, acknowledge and justify taking the cattle, saying that they distrained them for arrears of rent of 40s yearly due to John Arundell, because of an exchange made in 1568 by Sir Robert Dennys, lord of Holcombe Burnell, to Sir John Arundell knight.
Recites: 29th Sep 1568 (10 Eliz), between Sir John Arundell of Lanherne knight and Sir Robert Dennys, lord of Holcombe Burnell; Arundell's ancestors having time out of mind had the right to demand a buck in summer and a doe in winter from the park of Crediton alias Kirton, Arundell assigned that right to Sir Robert Dennys and his heirs of body and to the heirs of body of Sir Thomas Dennys his father; in consideration for that, Dennys granted to Arundell a similar liberty of having a buck and doe from Dennys's park in Holcombe Burnell, and if that should be disparked and no deer there, then a rent of 40s yearly. Sir John Arundell died at Holcombe on 1st May 1594 (36 Eliz); and the park was disparked.

The aim was to set aside certain leases of the manors and lands [named], made by John Arundell the father, and the devices of his will; and to prevent the defendants from selling certain ancient jewels and plate, bequeathed by Sir John Arundell knight, grandfather of the plaintiff, to descend as heirlooms, and valued at £3000.

King's instruction to the sheriff of Somerset, to summon before his justices at Westminster, Hilary term 1402 (or 1416 or 1425), 12 knights or other freemen of the neighbourhood [?] (de vis'u) of Pukynton, of whom each has 100s of land, tenements or rent, and who have no connection, either with (1)-(3), kinsmen and heirs of Cecily daughter of John de Knouill, or with (4).
They are to decide whether (4) was a tenant of 1/3rd of the manor of Pukynton and of the advowson of its church, on the day that (1)-(3) placed a brief in the king's court at Westminster (10th Jul 1401, 2 Hen), concerning which (1)-(3) plead enforcement by virtue of a fine levied in court, Trinity term 1317 (10 Edward II), between Alice who was wife of John de Knouill, plaintiff, and John Taleford and David Aunselyn, deforciants [= AR/1/1107; cf.

Record of legal proceedings
John Chuderlegh and Margaret de Burton his wife = (1)-(2)
Richard Alderyngton clerk and John Copleston senior = (3)-(4)
Recites: final concord, Michaelmas term 1396 (20 Ric II), between Thomas Mareschall, claimant, and Gilbert de Burton and Isabel his wife, deforciants, concerning a moiety of the manors of Lodeswell, Yedeford and Bathesthorn [sic] and the advowson of the church of Yedeford; Gilbert and Isabel acknowledged the moiety and advowson to be the right of Thomas, of which Thomas had 2 parts of the moiety and also the advowson by their gift; for this Thomas granted to Gilbert and Isabel those 2 parts and the advowson, for Gilbert, Isabel and their heirs of body to hold of the chief lords of the fee by services due for ever; Thomas also granted that the third part of the moiety, which John Gonys and Agnes had held as Agnes's dower of Thomas's inheritance, and which should revert to Thomas after Agnes's death, should also remain to Gilbert and Isabel. If Gilbert and Isabel should die without heirs of body, the moiety and advowson should remain to Isabel's heirs of body; in default of such heirs, to Gilbert's heirs of body; in default of such heirs, to John son of Henry de Burton and his heirs of body; in default, to Peter de Burton and his heirs of body; in default, to Margaret daughter of Henry de Burton and her heirs of body; in default, to Agnes wife of Nicholas le Marsshall de Weryngton (Lancashire) and her heirs of body; in default, to Hugh Haydok and his heirs of body; in default, to Thomas Burton and his heirs of body; in default, to John Heythecok and his heirs of body; in default, to Margery wife of Matthew Wrennebury and his heirs of body; in default, to John Duyne and his heirs of body; in default, to the true heirs of Isabel.
Now from information (insinuacio) of John Chuderlegh and the said Margaret [de Burton] his wife [= (1)-(2)], the King had learnt that Agnes wife of John Gonys, Gilbert and Isabel, John son of Henry and Peter had died without heirs of body, and that Richard Alderyngton clerk and John Copleston senior [= (3)-(4)] were holding the moiety and advowson, contrary to the fine. The sheriff was to inform them to be in court, Trinity term, [to explain] why the moiety and advowson should not remain to Margaret. (1)-(2) through Thomas Heuster their attorney sought enforcement (executio) against (3)-(4) through John Polreden their attorney; (3)-(4) said that they should not have enforcement by virtue of the fine, because long before that fine was levied, a certain [John] Deneham was seised of the moiety and advowson as of fee, until Gilbert who was party to the fine disseised him unjustly; whose estate (1)-(2) now have in the moiety and advowson; they say that the fine was levied between that disseisin and the entry of John Deneham; they are willing to prove it and seek judgement.
(1)-(2), not acknowledging that John Deneham had an estate in them, seek enforcement, saying that John Duyn was seised of the moiety and advowson long before the fine was levied; he granted them to John Hornecastell, parson of Lodeswell church, John Boys de L...erton, and to John de Tyuerton lately parson of ...ghfelde church and John Waskham, both now deceased, to hold of himself for ever; of which grant they four were seised as of fee; John Hornecastell and John Boys, by right of accretion (ius accrescendi), were thus seised of the moiety and advowson wholly, and granted them to John Duyn and Alice his wife and their heirs of body, and in default of such heirs to the true heirs of John Duyn for ever; such that John Duyn and Alice were seised of the moiety and advowson as of fee tail, and had issue, one John and the said Isabel [wife of Gilbert de Burton]; after their death John son of John held the moiety of Lodeswell and Yedeford in fee tail, and the moiety of Batesthorne and the advowson as of fee; he died without heir of his body, so that the moiety and advowson descended to Isabel as sister and heir; she married Gilbert and they were parties to the fine, without Gilbert disseising John Deneham as alleged.
(3)-(4) acknowledged some of what (1)-(2) said, but said that Gilbert did disseise John Deneham. Order to the sheriff to summon a jury for Michaelmas term, to determine etc.

William Boswala (a tin-work called Byssa, in Myngam ground); Thomas Symond (Jenkin Treris kept a herd with cattle upon Myngam and Gauerygan Downe, from Treris Water to Gauerygan Crosse).
After all these examinations, for a further proof, we the commissioners, the same 9th Dec, took with us most of the deponents and went to the ground in strife, where the deponents showed us the places deposed by them to be the boundaries of Myngan and Gauerygan Downe, and the places where they stated the toll tin was taken by Sir John Arundell and his ancestors, and the places where the furzes and turves were cut; and it clearly appears that the tin-work of which the toll tin is in strife is within the bounds of Myngam.

Inquisition to establish bounds, by copy of court roll
John Arundell, knight, lord of the manor = (1)
Manor of Treloye: indented record of inquisition held before William Bere, gentleman, under-steward of (1), by oath of all the tenantry.
The true bounds of Myngam and Myngam Downe begin at a water flowing from Gossemour to the corner of a hedge of Myngam on the north side; from there as a green way leads from the water towards Froddon to a 'lappa' or heap of stones on the east side almost to 'le Furches', the way is the bound between the land of Gauerygan and Myngam and Myngam Downe; from the 'lappa' or heap of stones to the top of a hill leading southwards to a stone placed as a bound; from that stone straight to a great stone called Mene Bugell on the south; from that stone to certain pits called Pyttes Lawarnes, and from there to the well of Sancta Columba; so to the water of Treris on the south and east side; by the water of Treris to the water flowing from Gossemour (incipiunt ad aquam fluente ducente et current' de mora vocat' Gossemour ad angulum cuiusdam sepis sive fossati de Myngam predict' in parte borial', sic abinde sicut verida via que ducit ab dict' aqua versus Froddon ad quandam lappam sive cumulum lapidum in parte oriental' quasi ad Le Furches, que quidem via est verus bund' et limes inter terr' de Gauerygan et Myngam et Myngam Downe predict'; et sic ab dict' lappa sive cumulo lapid' versus summicat' mont' ducent' versus australem ad quemdam lapidem ibidem scit' et posit' pro bund'; et ab illo lapide recte usque ad quemdam lapidem magnum vocat' Mene Bugell in parte australi; et ab illo lapid' vocat' Mene Bugell ad quosdam puteos vocat' Pyttes Lawarnes, et abinde ad fontem Sancte Columbe; et sic ad aquam de Treris in parte austral' et oriental', et sic per aquam de Treris predict' ad predictam aquam ducent' et current' de mora de Gossemour prenominat').
John Gauerygan and all his predecessors, whose heir he is, have been and are seised in the lands of Myngam and Myngam Downe in demesne as of fee tail, holding them of John Arundell knight as of the said manor, by rent and service of 18s, suit of court, and relief.
John Arundell and his predecessors have had toll of all tin found within the bounds of Myngam and Myngam Downe, namely the thirteenth gallon of black tin according to custom time out of memory.

'Jesop' [= family lawyer?]
[Copy] I have been busy in Hartland causes 'to frame them' to good end without 'lane' [or 'laue'?] if I might, but it will not serve. Therefore please let there be a bill framed in my name against Hugh Stukely gentleman, as follows. He became surety for John Holman to pay me £40 for a fine; £20 should have been paid at the following Lady Day, and at £20 the following audit, that is about 4 years ago. Now he has made certain covenants and conveyances, that he will not admit the 'stub' of the matter, nor do anything affecting it without Holman's consent or that of his counsel. This is to delay or prevent my ordinary remedy in law. Stukely is to admit that Holman requested him to act as surety for the payment of the £40.

Note by Peter Boaden
It seems clear that the AR/18/9/1 plan was drawn up by copying from both the draft plan AR/18/9/2 and the original plan AR/18/8, or another version of this plan.
The AR/18/8 plan appears to have been drawn up for the Edgcumbe interests, as it lists and shows the Edgcumbe parts of the various tinbounds. It may be a copy of an original, possibly drawn up for some other person or persons; that two shafts are called Ray Shaft, rather than Rag, and another is called Ullens while the AR/18/9/1 plan calls it Allens, as well as several little slips in the drawing, suggest that it is a copy, not an original, despite the rather elaborate decorations.
The plan makes reference to the brook which divides Mr Edgcomb's land from --- Arundell's. This reference dates the plan as having been drawn up not before c.1688, when Sir Richard Edgcumbe died, unless it is a copy of an earlier plan and the text has been copied as well as the actual plan. It also dates the plan as drawn up not after 1701, when Sir John Arundell died, unless it is after the succession of his grandson Richard Arundell to the estate in about 1716, and unless again, it is a later copy and the text has been copied as well as the plan itself.
A large sett of Polgooth and adjacent bounds was granted in 1687 (AR/14/428), the adventurers undertaking to drive an adit to unwater the bounds within 10 years. In 1690 Polgooth was not being worked significantly, but in 1698 Sir John Arundell's agents were receiving very large quantities of tin from Polgooth bounds. In September 1693 the adventurers came to an agreement with two men to drain the mines for them by erecting one or more engines when called on by the adventurers to do so (AR/14/429). It would seem that the mine began working on a large scale at some point between 1690 and 1698, presumably with the aid of the adit and, since the agreement evidently shows that the adventurers at that time felt that one or more new engines would soon be necessary to drain the mines, presumably also with the aid of one or more new engines erected subsequent to September 1693.
The plan shows the adit extending to the western boundary of Polgooth; this would have taken several years to drive. A substantial number of shafts where copper has been mined are shown; this perhaps suggests that a date in the mid or later 1690s would be more likely than a date in the early 1690s, especially since a couple have the name 'English's', which may be named after the English Copper Company, formed in the early 1690s.
The two engines by the stream are clearly intended to work in tandem, with the one on Polgooth raising water from the Upper Engine Level to the adit. A level which would have served to bring water to near the bottom of the shaft the Mulvra engine is in, on the other hand, is shown only as a dotted line. It would seem that this level was not in existence when the plan was drawn up, or that if it was in existence for some or all of its length, it was in need of being reinstated - otherwise presumably it would have been drawn with proper lines. The existence of the dotted line appears to show that it was the intention to drive this level. But even if this was not their intention, if they worked out that an upper engine level would be the efficient way of getting water to the upper engine to be drained by it, it seems extremely likely that they would have also worked out that they would need to drive a lower engine level as a matter of priority as soon as the Mulvra engine shaft reached whatever was considered a suitable depth for such a level to be drawn - otherwise they would not be able to get the water to the lower engine efficiently.
Thus it seems likely that the plan shows the workings as they were in the 1690s when the lower engine had just begun to pump from the depth shown, and before the adventurers had been getting tin in this working for very long - in other words, shortly after the two engines were erected.
Thus assuming that the two engines by the stream were erected in the period 1693-1698, the plan will have been drawn up in the same years.

Grant of wardship and marriage
King Henry [VI] = (1)
William de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk = (2)
Copy of letters patent: John Arundell knight (deceased) held lands and tenements from (1) in chief by knight's service; John Arundell his kinsman and heir is under age, so the wardship of him and his lands comes to (1). (1), through mainprise (manucaptio) of Thomas Stanley knight and Thomas Pycot esquire, entrusts to his kinsman (2) and to [blank] the wardship of all those lands and tenements, together with the gift of John Arundell's marriage; to hold from the death of John Arundell knight. Rent to (1)'s exchequer I [blank] at Michaelmas next for the wardship and marriage. If John Arundell should die (si de herede predicto humanitus contingat) before he is of age, and if there is an heir under age, then (2) and [blank] are to have the wardship of the land and heir and his gift in marriage until he is of age, and so from heir to heir until one comes to full age; and they are to find adequate sustenance for the heir.

Note: Date: entered in Patent Rolls (Calendar of Patent rolls 1442, p. 66). Sir John Arundell had died 11th Jan 1435; his son, John Arundell of Bideford, had already died in 1423, so the heir was the grandson John Arundell, who had been baptised in Bideford 9th Jun 1421, aged 3 (according to Vivian: can this be right?). He came of age in Jun 1442. (All from Public Record Office inquisitions, C139/72, no 39 (1435) and C139/107, no 36 (1442).)
See also AR/2/339/1, membrane 1 (c2): court of Lanhadron manor, dated 5th Sep 1442 [sic], held in the name of William de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk; he seems to have been slow in returning the estates after John Arundell came of age.
John Arundell later (1446) granted some of his lands to Suffolk and others as jointure for his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Lord Morley: see AR/19/4-7.

Deposition concerning testament
Deposition by Richard Roscarrock of Roscarrock, esquire, 'for testyfying of the trouthe not hable to travle, vysyted wyth long sykenes', that John Arundell knight (deceased), grandfather of John Arundell knight 'that nowe is', both 'yn the tyme of hys soyournyng yn my house by the space almost of fowre yeres, where he dyed nere XXXte yeres paste', and also at all other times, used to seal his leases and deeds with his seal of arms, and in no other manner. Also that Roscarrock was foreman of the jury on the occasion of Arundell's death, and that two wills were exhibited, one signed and sealed by Arundell with his seal of arms, the other 'avouched' by Tregose and others 'to be hys dede, yn consyderacyon of hys former use', and that it was found that the one signed and sealed by Arundell was his true testament. Signatures of Roscarrock and of John Kestell, mayor of Bodmyn. Remains of seals of Roscarrock and of Bodmin borough.

Note: The Sir John Arundell whose will is in question here is the one who died in Feb 1545 (not his son, who died in Nov 1557).
Compare AR/24/24 for that Sir John operating from Roscarrock in 1541; it was also that one (died 1545) who had Tregose as steward.
For 2 wills of that Sir John, see AR/21/9 (dated 1513) and AR/21/12 (his Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem, reciting a will of 17th Apr 1544, mentioning Tregose; the original Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem is Public Record Office Ward AR/7/3/125). A comment on AR/21/65 states that it was that later will of 1544 that was disallowed; but this is not so far clear to me, nor that it was the earlier one of 1513 which was allowed. OJP.

I request that after my decease my grandsons Charles, Richard and John Bellings and their respective heirs, and after them such other persons as shall have the freehold or inheritance of the chief mansion house of Lanherne, shall use the name of Arundell only as their surname, and write by that surname in all deeds and writings.
Codicil states that my wife is to have the use of my plate, household goods and linen during her life.

Note: n.b. This document disproves the claim that Richard Bellings used the name of Arundell 'without authority', as is sometimes claimed (e.g. Vivian, Visitations, p. 4, quoting Le Neve's Knights, Harl. MS 5801); for he was doing so at Sir John's express request.

King Edward IV; for his treasurer and barons of the exchequer

At the time of his death Nicholas Carrewe esquire, late sheriff of Devon (deceased) was to render account of revenues from Devon from Michaelmas 1469 to Michaelmas 1470. Sheriffs of various counties were ordered to seize lands and tenements of his; Robert Greville esquire, lately sheriff of Oxfordshire and Berkshire, seized on 28th Jan 1471 (10 Edw IV) the manor of Mulford; Maurice Berkeley knight, lately sheriff of Hampshire, seized on 20th Jun 1471 (11 Edw IV) the manor of Anneport. Thus Greville owes £4 5s 6d revenue up to 20th Feb 1472 (11 Edw IV) and Berkeley owes 71s 3 1/2d revenue up to same date. Now for certain special considerations the King releases to Greville and [Berkeley] these debts and accounts, and instructs the exchequer to cease all actions against them for payment.

Our loving sheriff and justices of the peace of Cornwall
[Copy; but with what look like original signatures] Lately you took recognizance from Sir John Arrundell, knight, in the sum of £200, according to a general order given by us, that he should appear in person before us when called, should be of good behaviour towards the Queen and all her loyal people, and should remain so bound until discharged of it by us. He has since then been with us here at court, and shown himself very willing and conformable to do everything appropriate for a dutiful subject. Accordingly, and because of the sure opinion we have gained of his fidelity and good intention towards the Queen's service and the realm, we have decided to release him from his recognizance; and we inform you of this so that you can arrange the discharge and cancellation of the recognizance.

ARUNDELLS IN ADMINISTRATIVE ROLES  AR/24  [n.d.]

Contents:
These documents show various Arundells acting in a personal rather than public capacity as executors, attorneys, arbiters, guardians, stewards, agents and trustees for their friends and acquaintances. There is some overlap with AR/22. The documents are in chronological order and include appointments, grants, feoffments, legal depositions, bonds and receipts. Note the following groups of documents:
AR/24/6 - 12 These documents show a feoffment of several manors in Cornwall, Devon and Oxfordshire to John and Katherine Arundell so as to provide an annuity for Robert and Ann Byan, and include some title deeds for Yarnscombe manor. The feoffment appears to have been temporary as the manors do not appear in the possession of the Arundells later (apart from Ipseden which was granted to them in 1466, AR/1/710) and so it can be assumed that the Arundells are acting as trustees here.
AR/24/20 - 24 The will and testament of Gilbert Bekett must have been in the possession of the Arundells because Sir John Arundell was granted the wardship and marriage of the son and heir, Robert Bekett.
AR/24/25 - 30 These documents are connected with the wardship and marriage of John Tregian which was granted to John Arundell by King Henry VIII.

Note: This might be connected with Ralph de Arundell's office of sheriff in 1260 (AR/22/1); but not necessarily, since it seems to belong with testamentary rather than fiscal accounting.

[no title]  AR/24/28  1539, 17th Jun

Administrative history:
'John Arundell of Trelaune knight': the first wife of Sir John Arundell (died 1545) was Eleanor Gray, daughter of Thomas Gray Marquis of Dorset (The Visitations of Cornwall, edited by Lieutenant-Colonel J. L. Vivian, p. 4). Trelawne belonged to the Grays until the execution of Eleanor's brother Henry (as Duke of Suffolk) in 1554 (whence its forfeiture to the crown and, indirectly, its purchase by the Trelawnys in about 1604). Eleanor was in fact the great-great-great-great-granddaughter of the sister of the last male Champernowne of Trelawne. Although not Dorset's heir, she evidently had the use of the house. This John Arundell is her son (died 1557), using the house in his mother's right.

Now if (1) pays £20 to (4) to the king's use by Christmas next, in part payment of that £60 (itself part of their debt of £200), then this bond shall be null and void; otherwise it stands in its strength.

Depositions of witnesses, taken by John Arrundell, John Bevell, Robert Trencreke and Richard Trevanion at St Coolumbe Ouer [sic], the 20th day etc., by virtue of the Queen's commission from the Court of Chancery.
William Browne: knew tenements in Coswarn Wartha and Bosparveth Wollas; that John Becham was seized of the said lands in variance, and conveyed them to Sir Thomas Speke; of seisin delivered at Nanscosack (parish of Maderen); of Walter Gavrigan, who came to John Becham on his death-bed, where Iuell and Jago refused to be witnesses to the writing, so that one Fowler of St Mary Weeke was called to witness it; Mrs Becham his wife and John Iuell later came up into the chamber and found the said writings dispersed about, took them up and put them into a coffer again, where they were wont to lie, for at the time that he had the perusing of them she was commanded out of the chamber by Walter Gavrigan; rent from Hengarrack, parcel of the lands now in variance; trouble and variance between Sir George Speke and Walter Gavrigan, starting in the chancery; lands at Bodmyn and Burlewing [?] Egglis.
John Iuell: knew tenements in Newland and Gwynnepp. A stamping mill in Treseamble.
William Langford of Branford (Devon), servant to the complainant: knew Busparverth [sic] Wartha and the tenement in Stythiens; Henry Tresawnawe, occupying Tresawnawe (in the parish of Newland).
John Fowler of Saynt Mary Weeke (on complainant's part): agreed that Walter Gavrigan 'practized' with Mr Becham a little before his death to have a release sealed of the lands in variance, to which release Fowler set his hand as witness, and it was he supposed the writing of George Carnsewe, and Fowler showed him that it could not be good, for Sir Thomas Speke had a former conveyance.
Geoffrey John, servant to Sir George Speke (on the complainant's part): knew a parcel of ground in Lasack; a tenement in Carvannell; Sir Thomas Speke was seized of Nanscosack, and died there; John Gavrigan, copartner of John Becham; Sir George Speke, son and heir to Sir Thomas.
John Jago, servant of the complainant: confirms that Gavrigan took certain rents, on the condition that he would repay them if Sir George Speke should recover them; lands in Bodman and Burlewin Egglis.

John Arundell; from Westminster
Lady Katherine Arundell, my well-beloved bedfellow
Please excuse my not writing until now. I had bad news on arrival, as I think you have heard by now, of John's departure. I had no knowledge where he had gone, overseas or hidden in the realm because of the great debt that he is in, and for fear of my displeasure; so could not write to tell you. Now I have spoken with someone who has spoken with him in France in the town of Amiens ('Amyas'); some think he intends to go to Rome or Jerusalem. His wife is sad and hard up, and does not know where to stay until she gives birth; so I have stayed longer, for I must see her settled. I have arranged that she shall be with my Lord Marquis at 'teiltie' [?] until she gives birth, 'for she is bege and as men thinckyth queicke'. After that, I must provide for her, between her friends and myself, until he comes home. Letters have been devised and provision made to send in [?] to various persons overseas to return him, if possible. No other news, as the bearer can tell you. Next Monday or Tuesday [?] I intend to depart from London towards you, God willing.

Note: Katherine was his second wife, daughter of Sir Thomas Grenfield - 19th-century endorsement.

John Arundell
Lady Katherine Arundell, my hearty beloved bedfellow
When I came to Exeter I had word that my Lord Marquis was at Nevnam Abbey, which I did not fully believe. But when I came to Otrye that same night, and next morning, I learnt that he would be at Otrye that night. I rode to meet him, met him beyond Wystome, attended him to Otrye, and stayed there one day. Then I rode to my Ladyship, and stayed there one day; then back to Forde Abbey and Lord Dawbeneye, and brought him to Cerne Abbey, leaving him there. My Lord was determined at first to view all my Lady Marquis's lands in Devon and Cornwall; now he has given up that journey and has ridden to court. Because of him I have not as yet done anything concerning my own business.
From my Lord I learn that the King's going overseas is not so likely to be this year as I thought when the King's letter was delivered to me, though there is no depending upon it, for he also told me news from overseas [?] that he will go [?], though it be All Saints or Christmas (please keep this information secret).
I intend to continue my journey to London after I have viewed my tenants.

John Tregous; from London
Sir John Arundell, my master
Master Thomas was not carrying out his business, for which you sent me to him. Lady Oxford is 50-52 miles out of London, and her counsel will do nothing without hearing from her. Master Malett has told her counsel your wish, and that you will agree to nothing else. Lady Oxford is happy with your offer, but wants Master Thomas to make up the jointure with £100 of his own lands, to which he will not agree.
The King is at Orke Place, and so are Ann and other ladies. The wines and kitchens are prepared. A bull has come from the Pope to Flanders, to 'coursse' all consenting or 'provoking' the marriage; although kept secret, it will come out, since the clergy of England and France have agreed. The King sent for people from Oxford and Cambridge, who have come ready. Lord Wiltshire has come homewards to the French court.

I have sounded opinions, and all agree there is no remedy for you: a patent was issued, whatever became of it; I shall have to search for the 'act of resumsion' made when you were here, and what provision was made for you there. Before my patent is sealed (and it is ready), a 'dedimus potestatem' must be sent down to somebody to take surrender of your patents; I suggest the Prior of Bodmin as a suitable person.

Thomas Arundell; from Barlyche
Sir John Arundell, his father
I have kept Master Morcombe so long from you because I 'lokyd dayly from Lundun', for my 'sister' was to come to London ('were toward Lundun') within 3 or 4 days after I last wrote to you; which was such sudden notice that it rather troubled me, because I was absent and 'in occupasyon off this lamentabell busynes'. Nevertheless I thought I could at least send there [?], having such word from Lady Seymor that it was the King's pleasure; so now, having word from them, I learn that my 'sister' Jane has returned, mainly at her own instigation ('by her awne occasyon'); considering her pains of her head [she] thought herself 'unmette', and so, once she had spoken with Lady Seymor, they decided that she should not see the King.
My 'sister' Mary is accepted, both by the King and by 'here that is or schortly schalbe his wyffe', to be of her privy chamber.
The remainder I shall commit 'in credens' to this bearer until I have the opportunity to visit you myself, as soon as I can.

As I learn by this bearer, Lady Sussex will suggest to you that my sister Jane might come up here again when she gives birth; which in my opinion cannot be, for it would cause some men to remember what will be the sooner forgotten through absence. From Wynter my servant I learn that you hope to hear from me concerning your bill to be assigned [?] and for the advowson of Cardynham: concerning the [bill], please understand that, since speaking with you last, I have not been in a position to do any good therein; and in addition, please remember, you wrote to me that in furthering it I should not meddle with certain persons; one of whom I fear will be a great hindrance; though when I go up soon, I shall do my best.
Concerning Cardynham, I have spoken with the Earl of Bath, and he has told me that he will be contented, although there must be an advowson made and sent me, and then I trust I can speed both Lord Bath and Lord Zowche.
I understand also from Wynter that you are informed that I have 14 horses in your park of Chydyoke: that is untrue, for even the 8 that I did have there were brought away before Wynter came from you to me. The truth is that some who had rather more use of your park than I had are unhappy, because they cannot use what they have grown accustomed to.

I am surprised that in all the time since I wrote to you, you have sent no word to Mr Chambarlayne concerning the matters between you both. His servant was with me yesterday asking whether I had any word from you, and I could only answer that I had none. He intends forthwith to extend his statute, which will be some trouble to him, and a great deal more to you. So please use more circumspect and diligent considerations in your affairs; for if you do not, although you and your friends may for the time cause the parties to forbear and tolerate their extremities, yet finally they will come through [or 'there'?] more extremely at the last. I am sure your wisdom considers these things well enough, and therefore I shall the less need to write any more. Your servant, also, with whom I have conferred in this and other business of yours, can more fully declare the whole; please trust him.

Edward Arundell esquire
I have spoken with Trembere of Seint Austell; he tells me that the tinwork does not belong to him, but to a child of George Nanfisicke; his sole concern is in the child's right. I did not realise this before. He says he has no power to make an end. But if it were your pleasure to 'hire the mater' and one other which he intends to bring with him, and due proofs to be had, the child has no right, and he is content to leave off his activity ('geve over his doinge'). Giving you hearty thanks for the gentleness shown him on my behalf in my last letter written to you, and if it lies in my power to do you or a friend any similar pleasure, you shall be assured to command me.

Sir John Arundell; near Paris
---
[Sender's copy] Account of his appointment as master of the Queen's horse, statement of his innocence, and account of his arrival in France.
Considering our ancient acquaintance and friendship... I hope I shall not surprise you if after long and indeed premeditated silence, I say something to you in relation to my absence... me who am as perfectly innocent in all the matters now in question as you yourself can wish me... about the beginning of August last, the King displeased with Mr Montagu commanded his dismissal from the Queen's service as master of her horse, to show how much in earnest he was, and required the nomination of another to fill the place, upon which the Queen was most graciously pleased to name me, who the King most obligingly accepted on, and gave immediate order to have me sent for back, he knowing I was out of town, as being part of my way towards the Bath; this was done without the least solicitation of mine either directly or indirectly, on the contrary I had denied some of my best friends that pressed most directly [?], as in particular my Lord of Suffolk and Sir Thomas Chichely, to make any application for it... if a false thought could have entered into my heart, I must have joined to the greatest of impurity and folly the blackest of ingratitude, nor have I been even since this business without expression of his kindness, which made me when it came to that point that I must either conform or leave the Court, choose rather to beg his leave to depart the kingdom than retire to my own house (where I am told however [?] I have lived amongst my neighbours I had not been over welcome), it being at first I must confess a little insupportable to me to remain in England and not to have the same freedom and access I was wont to have, which I am sure I have forfeited not as much as with the thought of any other crime than the not believing as some other men do, which I can no more help than I can that I do not look as other men do ...
I am now at a little house I have hired a little way from Paris, and am here because as matters now stand I know not well where else to go, otherwise the gaiety, prosperity and vanity the late successes have given this people is not over agreeable to my humour at this time. I came hither after three months stay at Bulloine, were I was in very good health, to visit my sick daughter I left here four years since, and that was not a little impatient of seeing of me, and have now the discomfort of having her very ill in the house with me. I had not been in these parts two days but I was taken ill with a bloody flux, from whence I have fallen into three fits of the gout, the last the most violent and painful I ever had yet, so that I have passed almost five months as ill as most men, and yet after all this I am so well recovered as that I do not think I have had so good health this many years. ...

My thanks for your kindness; please assure the Queen of 'my perfect duty';... I need not tell you that my exclusion from her family is the most ['sensibell'?] affliction could befall me.... It is now come to that pass as that there is no condition no calling where someone or other is not under at least a powerful suspicion... Some few days since one Mademoiselle le Roux, an eminent practitioner from whom greater discoveries [?] are expected than any has been made yet, you may have heard amongst other things of an art to make women miscarry, and a list of 4300 at first given in; I was told yesterday morning from a very good hand that it is so without number and so many families concerned in it, as that the King has commanded the suppressing of that matter. You may wonder perhaps how a man so retired should come by so much news, but this has made such a noise as that I believe the Grand Chartreux could not have defended me from it. ...

Expressing kindness and friendship, to someone whose admirer I have been ever since I first met you. You must be in great chagrin, more than the rest, being away from so good a mistress and other good relations; I hope that I can alleviate your exile by diversions and good news. The Queen speaks graciously of you. Lady Margaret of Noster [?] has married a poor young Irish man (called Carny, but she calls him Mr O'Carny); he is aged 24, she three times that; they were publicly married at church. Tomorrow the Duchess goes to Holland to be at the Princess of Orange's... If you will give me a direction to you by... name, and I will change mine in the answer, you shall hear often from me; for I must not let your wife and my husband know of this correspondence, for though they think well enough of us, yet it is good to be wary.

RECUSANCY  AR/28  [n.d.]

Contents:
As staunch Catholics throughout their history the Arundells suffered for their religious beliefs from the time of the Reformation. These records include registers of the Arundell estate, made in accordance with the law for the registration of Papists' lands, and sheriffs' quittances for recusancy dues. AR/28/12-18 concern the sequestration of Sir John Arundell's land during the Civil War. The main reason for this sequestration was probably Sir John's royalism but his recusancy would have made him even more culpable and is cited as a reason in the documents.

Letter
[John] Warham
Sir John Arundell; at Somerset House, London
Though you do not know me, you have probably heard of me; I am helping the poor Catholics of Chidiock. I write not only for myself, but also for the assistant, whoever he may be; he has a very small subsistence. You kindly gave £5, and Mrs Catherine Petershal's charity helped until her death. The flock is extraordinarily numerous but extraordinarily poor. I suppose most of them formerly subsisted by your ancestors' charity, 'by whose means they were first brought in, and afterwards conserved in the Church'. It would be very kind if you could increase the allowance of him that assists them. Formerly the itinerant received £10 yearly from a Mr Knipe, but this has ceased (whether through his inability or something worse, I know not), and so have other small payments, through death of the contributors.

RECORDS OF OTHER FAMILIES  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
In the main these records are concerned with the members of families from whom the Arundells inherited land, not with the land inherited. The types of documents to be found are thus similar to those in the Arundell Family Papers section of the archive - probate records, personal correspondence, personal financial records and genealogical material. The records are arranged chronologically for each family except for the Dinhams where the number of records made subdivisions more practical.
AR/32 The Arundell of Trerice records include several bills for clothing and haberdashery items purchased for the funeral of Captain Nicholas Arundell in 1665. For other documents involving Arundells of Trerice see AR/17/118-125 (legal case brought against Sir John Arundell and his wife Anne, who was by birth an Arundell of Trerice), AR/41/5-6 and AR/46/11.
AR/34 See also AR/10 for correspondence of the Bere family.

Three bundles containing extensive correspondence of Sir Richard Bellings (died 1716), who married Frances Arundell (died 1723), daughter of the last Sir John Arundell of Lanherne (died 1701). Their sons, Richard and John Bellings, assumed the name Arundell and inherited successively the Lanherne estates, which passed eventually to Richard's co-heiresses Frances (who married Sir John Gifford) and Mary (who married Lord Arundell of Wardour).
Some of the correspondence has been roughly sorted under subjects and senders. Much relates to the Bellings estates in Ireland, but much is of a family nature. The parties to the latter include Sir John Arundell, Sir Richard and Lady Bellings, their sons Charles (died 1710) and Richard, their daughter Mary, Lady Hales, and Sir John Arundell's daughter Elizabeth, Lady Bedingfield. There are letters and accounts covering the years (c.1684-1700) spent by Charles and Richard Bellings as students in Paris; also letters written in 1698/9 by George Bere, the steward at Lanherne, to Sir John Arundell 'Master of Horse to the Queen Dowager, at Somerset House'.

Contents:

Agreement for assignment of dower
Oliver de Carmynou = (1)
Lady Joan who was wife of Roger de Carmynou, knight = (2)
Agreement between (1) and (2) for assignment of dower to (2) from the manors of Carmynou, Wynienton, Trezeued, Merthin, Kenel, Eglosros, Trelewith, Dysard, Resker and Hornicote, and the advowsons of the churches of Wyteston, Eglosros, Sanctus Rumon Maior and Sanctus Rumon Minor in Tyrhard.
(1) has assigned to (2) in name of dower the manors of Merthin and Wynienton, the whole land of Kenel, and £7 worth (librate) of land and rent in the manor of Eglosros, from the following tenements: of Trelong' £4 4s, vill of Trenustel 38s, tenement of John Boya in Penmene 10s, tenement of Alice de eadem 5s, tenement of John Batiz de Eglosros 2s, tenement of John Jacke de Eglosros 12d; for the advowsons of those churches he has assigned to her the advowson of the church of Eglosros with the advowson of the church of Eglosros [sic; read 'with appurtenances'].

Carminno 1309 [seal]

Note: Note on date: the clause is 'Die Sabbati in festo Beati Petri in Cathedra, anno regni Regis Edwardi secundo'; but 22nd Feb was not a Saturday in 1274, whereas it was so in 1309, so Edward II must be intended though not stated. In any case, Roger de Carminow died in 1308 (the writ for his Ipm. is dated 20th Dec 1308, and the inquisition 16th Jan 1309; George Oliver, Monasticon Dioecesis Exoniensis his son was then aged over 30). Joan de Carminow was still alive in 1321, Feet of Fines 467; W.Worcs saw her obit in Greyfriars, Bodmin, dated 1299 x 1329. The arms on the shield suggest that Joan was a Dinham by birth, which seems not to be otherwise known (though it is asserted, without authority, by J.P. Yeatman, The Early Genealogical History of the House of Arundell, p. 257b).

Note: The lost grant which is here confirmed is printed by Oliver, George Oliver, Monasticon Dioecesis Exoniensis, p. 43, no. XX; it consisted of the manors of Tywardreath and Ludgvan; Isolda's seal which was on it is illustrated by D. and S. Lysons, Magna Britannia: Cornwall, p. lxxix*, no. 2.

Account of tenure and its descent
[French] Letter addressed to 'Tres cher ami', about a law-suit of Dynham against the Prior of Trewerdreith concerning certain tenements in Cardinham; giving an account of the tenure of the Prior from the Cardynans.
Mentions a [= writ] of 'cessauit' prosecuted by 'Monsieur de Dynham le Peer' against the Prior of Trewerdreith, namely that one Robert de Cardynan was seised of the manor of Cardynan (of which the tenements in question were parcels) in demesne as of fee, and gave those tenements to Theobald ('Tebaut'), predecessor of the Prior, and to his successors for ever, to hold of Robert by homage, fealty and suit of his court of Cardynan 3 times yearly (at the courts after Michaelmas, St Hilary and the close of Easter), and by suit of enforcing judgements in that court by summonses when necessary (et auxuit par une suwete en aforcement des iugements en mesme la court par sommounsz qaunt bosoingne iserroit), and by service of 6d rent yearly at Michaelmas, and of providing 2 monk-chaplains (deus moingnes chapeleins) to perform matins, masses and other divine services in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the chapel 'ate Vale' (en le honur notre dame en la Chapele ate Vale) within that manor.
From Robert the manor and services descended to Andrew as son and heir, and from Andrew to Isolda ('Isude') as daughter and heir.

Now my will is that the feoffees should re-enfeoff me of such manors lands, etc., as I shall specify, if required; if I die before any such re-feoffment, they shall first pay all my debts, by advice from my executors; then allow Elizabeth my wife yearly to receive all revenues, to her own use, during the minority of George my son (providing well for him), as long as she remains unmarried; if she marries, she is to have all manors, lands, etc., as she held jointly with me, plus 1/3rd of my other manors as her dower during her life. The 'rule governans and kepyng' of my son to go to his mother, and after her death to the feoffees, until his full age of 21, providing for him from the revenues of 2/3rds of my manors, lands, etc.; the feoffees to have the remaining revenues from those 2/3rds, in excess of the reasonable sustenance of my son, and to put them yearly at All Hallows ('All Halowyn') into a coffer set within the 'chekker' of Exeter Cathedral, fastened with 3 separate locks (the keys with Master Roger Keye and Nicholas Gosse, clerks, and John Reigny), the coffer to be given to my son at his coming of age.
If the son dies before the age of 21, the feoffees shall deliver the money to such other children of mine as are alive. If I die without issue of my body, it shall be spent on alms and charity, and especially on my sisters' marriages, for my soul and those of my friends.
After my wife's death and my son's full age, the feoffees shall make an estate of all the manors, lands, etc., to him and his heirs for ever. If he dies under age, then immediately after my wife's death they shall make a similar estate for my next heir and for his heirs for ever.
[Slits for tag of a seal, but no evidence that there was ever a seal.]

Note: N.b. This John Lord Dinham did not die until 1501; was it written at the birth of his son George, who apparently did not survive him? His wife Elizabeth is either Elizabeth Fitzwalter (his first wife) or Elizabeth Willoughby (his second wife).

Lawyer's letter to his client
To Sir John Dynham, please know that we have pleaded with the Prior of Bodmyn [concerning] the brief of ward (bref de garde) touching on ward and heir of Thomas Seyntaubyn, and the Prior has pleaded the king's aid, showing a letter patent of the prince's grant of the same ward, so that it is necessary to sue by petition to the king for a letter of proceeding (bref de procedendo).
Regarding the two briefs of ward and of 'engettement' of ward towards Martin Taluargh and others, the two juries are respited until the octave of St Hilary [= until 20th Jan].
Regarding the two briefs touching William fitz Walter, the plaintiff does nothing, so you instruct me what to do regarding this, whether to continue or not.
Regarding the brief for Thomas Fylly against William Phelip and Joan his wife, I am greatly surprised that the brief of "plur' venire fac' xii" was not returned, so you instruct me if it shall be pursued further, but I have still continued it.
Regarding the brief for damages recovered against John Hydon, I am also surprised that the brief of 'fieri facere' was not returned to me, but now I have pursued a brief of 'elegit' as you instructed, which brief you lack.
Regarding the "alias habere fac' visum" of Roger Dore and Joan his wife for the manor of Corfton, please know that I can in no way have the brief served, and still I have delivered them twice through a bill and the sheriff replies that nobody came on the plaintiff's part etc., so I have a "plur' habere fac' visum", returnable on the quindene of St Hilary [= on 27th Jan] next, so that it is necessary to provide for ('viaunder') Richard Wode or another to remain ('demorser') until the view is duly held.
Regarding the brief of dower which the countess pursues against you, please let me know that they are continuing the brief, to what purpose I know not, unless to gain advantage by default, which they shall not do.
In addition, please know that John Milbourne and I have spoken together, and he has delivered to me a copy of an ancient fine touching the manor of Corfton, which you lack, enclosed in this letter. This shows that the manor is held of you in chief by service of the fourth part of a knight's fee, and not of the king, as appears to me from the fine, and I have promised him that he shall have good reward if the exemplification is useful for us; so my counsel is that you instruct John Milbourne to have his vaunste', for by what he told me he has several evidences which could be useful for you.
If you can have restitution of the of the various things which you have paid to... as you advise me... [greetings], John de Crukern [?]

Letter
Richard Facy
John de Dynham (a mon tres honore et tres reuerent et tres doute sieur mounsieur John de Dynham)
John Frensh has been with me and has informed me of the reply of Master John Lugaunce, that at the burial (ainterament) of the Bishop of Exeter, Sir James de Chuddelegh and other arbitrators between you and the Abbot of Hertilaund were together and discussed the matters between you and the Abbot, and could not conclude at the time; but they arranged to meet at the next court before Easter to discuss them. At that were Chuddelegh, John Prestecote and William Burleston, but Lugaunce could not be there. For lack of him they did not discuss, but he says that Chuddelegh, Prestecote and Burleston agreed to meet before the Nativity of St John Baptist next, to conclude, so that you and the Abbot do not have to be at common law as before; they sent him word of that. He said that no day was assigned for certain, but that before that feast it must be as they sent to him. Lugaunce also said that after the said burial (enterement), he has at no time been with Chuddelegh, Prestecote and Burleston to conclude the matters between you and the Abbot, but he says that if you or the Abbot wish to send for him to discuss and conclude between you, he is ready to discuss and make an end as they wish. Lugaunce also says that it would be good that an agreement were made between them, for if you wish to pursue the common law, it seems that you will not have the better part of right; but he does not say that in displeasur withe you, but to your honour, and more he cannot say. Also that you have made a letter to ask Richard Alryngton the Bishop of Exeter's surveyor to warrant the way for your wood sold beyond the bishop's wood of Enyham, for that way is fully blocked and closed by Alryngton in its extent towards Cornwall (a sa veuw envers Cornewaill) for the buyers of your wood do not wish to pay a penny more without deliverance of the said way; and that you send the letter quickly to me, for Alryngton is at present in Cornwall.

Sir John Dynham
Greetings to you and your lady; thanks for your kindness.
Regarding the matter between John Cosyn's wife and me, I am glad you have taken it in hand; otherwise I should have asked Lord Devonshire and Lord Ryuers to write to you; Lord Ryuers will go to Lord Bonevyle. My lord and lady have instructed me to go across to Garnesy and Geresy. Regarding the mass-book that the 'gentylwoman' sent me to deliver to her brother, I have brought it back because I do not wish to risk it overseas any more, for she might ask of me more than it worth; it must be delivered, or 'he stond acursyd and here brother all so'; please write and learn her wish, for she will not see that it is no fault of mine. Please can I have word next Monday or Tuesday at Exeter at Bek... or at your own inn; I also send you a copy of the letter that he sent to me.
Other news: my lord has a man from London, who says that all the 'sandeerys' are paid; the king announces that all 'sandeerys' shall go hither the following Monday, on pain of hanging and drawing; on Friday week [?] their muster shall be at Roburgh Dovn (alle the sandeerys er payyd atte London euery peny, and cryyd by the kyng that all sandeerys shall draw hem heder that non be fond ther as was Moneday nexste a pon payne of hongyng and drawyng and a Fryday comyth a sevenyth here muster shall be atte Roburgh Dovn).

Letter from (1) to (2)-(5) and all chaplains celebrating divine services in that deanery [of Kerrier]; he has received a serious complaint from William de Lambron, executor of the testament and administrator of the goods of Emma ('Emota') wife of John de Lambron, deceased, saying that certain sons of iniquity, against the wish of William de Lambron, have removed, squandered, violated, concealed and detained certain of Emma's goods, and still detain them unjustly, thereby preventing her pious last testament; there is no doubt that they have thereby damnably incurred the punishment of greater excommunication.
(1) orders (2)-(5) that those who wrongly seize the goods and have been excommunicated should be four times publicly and solemnly denounced on separate days, Sundays and feast days, at masses when the greater number of clerics and common people shall be present, with bells struck, candles lit and cross held erect in hand; inquiring diligently of the names of those who wrongly seize the goods; instruct them, when found, immediately to appear before (1) or his agent, for matters touching the emendation of their souls to be put before them, and to swear to say the truth and to do what shall be just.

Note: To do with the Trerice branch?
Robert Trevanion (of Trevanion, lost in Carhayes parish) was shortly (in about 1390) to marry Joan, daughter and heiress of Ralph Arundell of Trevanion, so bringing Carhayes to the Trevanion family (Charles Henderson, Essays in Cornish History, p. 189).
Did Lambourn have the wardship of Joan, perhaps to become adult in four years' time? (But if she was to have married her second husband, Robert Trevanion, by about 1390, she is unlikely still to have been a minor in 1388 as here).
'Manor of Treueylar': though the text has 'manerium', singular, it may be that plural is intended.

Note: Goes with Soor deeds (Tolverne manor), preumably.
Date: AR/46/1 and AR/46/2 are in the same hand, suggesting that they were made on the same occasion or nearly so. Since AR/46/2 is datable to 1186 x 1191 (dates of John the Chanter, Bishop of Exeter), so 'J.' of AR/46/1 must be Joel, Prior of Plympton in 1188-1202 (The Heads of Religious Houses England and Wales 940-1216, p. 181), not John, Prior in 1169-76 (ibid.); and the pair of documents can be dated to 1188 x 1191 (access of Prior Joel and death of John the Chanter).
Compare 1201 Assize Roll, no 538 (pp. 148-49), concerning the same advowson: this agreement seems not to have been effective. (Also Oliver, George Oliver, Monasticon Dioecesis Exoniensis, p. 139, no xvi, quoting a summary of the same case from the Abbreviatio Placitorum.)
