• Background Information. 1280
"The manor of Trelawne in Palynt, belonged at an early period to the Bodrugans. Sir Henry Bodrugan gave it as marriage portion, with his daughter to Henry Champernowne." The descent of these estates through Champernowne to Bonville is apparently accounted for by the marriage of Nicholas Bonville, of Wiscombe and Shute, born about 1293, to Joan daughter of Henry de Champernown, by his wife Joan, daughter of Henry Bodrugan. The agreement for this married is dated 25 Nov, 1328. It was made between Stephen de Hacombe and Otho de Bodrugan, to the effect that Nicholas Bonville should marry Joan Champernowne, who was probably the niece of Brodrugan.
