Noted events in his life were:
• Background Information. 1353
Sir Oliver Carminowe's brother Sir John, who died in 1341, married the daughter and heiress of Sir John Glynn, in Cardinham, an ancient family which became extinct in the elder line at this period; and the family estates were added to the already great possessions of the Carminows, who at one time or another seem to have held more manors in Cornwall that any three other Cornish families, and whose sons and daughters appear to have made the best matches of their day. The Carminows must have been a handsome and fascinating race, since they were so sought after in marriage by the wealthiest and most distinguished of their neighbours. No portrait or description remains of any member of the family, male or female, but we can make the above deduction from the self-evident facts. In reference to the Glyns it is interesting to note that a younger branch of the Glyns bought back the seat of their ancestors at Glyn, but that branch also is now extinct.
