Offices Held


Michael accompanied his brother, John, to the Parliament of 1393, both of them representing Helston. Like him, he was associated with the Cornish family of Penrose: in the same year, in fact, he and Joss Penrose, the judge’s brother, were accused at the assizes at Launceston of disseising Thomas Paderda* of land in the parish of St. Erme. Michael was still living in 1406 when he was mentioned as entitled to a reversionary interest in moieties of the hamlets of Retallack and ‘Tregosoll’ in west Cornwall after the death of his brothers, John and Ralph, but he evidently died before 1425 when Ralph’s daughters were declared to be the heirs to the property.1
