BOCONNOC

(son or grandson of William Moune, who married Isabel Courtenay aforesaid) that married Joan daughter of Sir William Trevanion, Knt. whose son, Sir Mohun, Knt. married Joan, one of the sisters and coheirs of Sir John Horsey, Knt. by whom he had issue, Sir Reginald Mohun, Knt. that married two wives; the first, Sir William Killigrew's daughter; the second, a daughter of Heale, of Wembury in Devon; the which Sir Reginald, 15 November 1612, was created a Baronet of England, temp.
