Richard Enys, a.1653-1710

One of four sons of Samuel Enys and Elizabeth Pendarves, Richard was a successful trader in Cadiz in the 1690s. He was part of a mercantile firm but, at some unreported stage, got into financial difficulties that were to blight the life of his brother, Valentine. Early in the eighteenth century he was employed overseeing the coinage of tin in Cornwall, a job essential to keeping him out of debt. However, he died without his issues having been resolved.
