John Enys

John Enys, the heir of Thomas Enys and Joan Peryn, first married Joan (daughter of Matthew Hendre), then in 1471 married Elizabeth (daughter of George Densall) after his father had settled on him all his lands in Nansalivester, Probus. In an earlier deed, dated 1464, his father’s estate was confirmed to him by his parents. He was the executor of his father’s will in 1475, and his own will was proved in 1510/11.
