Administrative history:
Apart from the charter for Ashendon (BCM/H/3/1/1 [SC 380], the charters and rolls below concern the Cornish lands of the Tregians. They were forfeited by Francis Tregian, who was accused of recusancy in 1577 and spent a number of years in the Tower, his estate being granted to Sir George Carey. Carey's widow sold the estate back to Francis Tregian the younger in 1607. The Tregian estate included several manors (Tolgus, Trewithgy, Golden and Corva, in St. Ives) which had been brought to the family in 1512 through an heiress of the Wolvedon family of Golden, anciently Wolvedon, in Probus,[Lysons, Magna Britannia, iii (Cornwall), 156, 248, 271-2, 276.]
