    3. [Sir Richard GRENVILLE of the Revenge] pg 186-187 Some interesting titbits for those interested. John WINSLADE, with whom trouble began, was a leader along with Humphrey ARUNDELL in the Rebellion; and like him was executed and his lands, which were extensive, forfeited to the Crown. Some time before, perhaps fearing some such trouble in those unquiet days, he made over to his wife Agnes, a number of manors, Bochym, Tregarrick, Talcarne, Penfugh, and Killigrow as her jointure. He seems to have been a generous, good-hearted nature, just such a man as the Rising would have swept in with it. After his death, his widow remarried John TREVANION, of Carhayes, bringing her jointure saved from the wreck of WINSLADE'S fortunes with her. When she was dead, the lands were to go to WINSLADE'S son William, or his heirs. But TREVANION kept the evidence, nor would he give them up when his wife lay on her death bed beseeching him to deliver then to WINSLADE'S. Instead, TREVANION handed them over with the lands which he granted partly to Francis BULLER, partly to Sir William MOHUN and John TRELAWNY, for sertain sums of money paid down and so much income for life. Poor Agnes, the wife, was kept from knowing the details of the transaction; she was willing enough for him to be made secure for life, but anxious that the children of John WINSLADE should come into their rights after, BULLER and MOHUN made themselves as sure as they could legally. Then on 17 November 1582, she died. A full enquiry was held, gripping stuff to sort out I must say. But how true is it all!! Daniel WINSLADE is mentioned Alice KING of Talland , an old serving woman John CONNOCK, lawyer of Liskeard Then on page 188 But the MOHUNS and the TREVANIONS went on; the former till they came to an end with the fifth Baron, and infernal brawler and duellist who was no better than a murderer was himself killed with the Duke of HAMILTON in Hyde park on 15 November 1712 -- an affiar of which swift sent such a vivid account to Stella; while the latter, the TREVANIONS, went on at Carhayes until early nineteenth century they came to an end in a riot of drink and wild escapades.

    3. Actually, if I had looked and used my brain, there are credits at the end of each page as to where some of the information was obtained, but I am sure a story has been weaved around it all.
