Anthony Wills of Gorran, co. Cornwall, gent v John Tayrell of Lostwithiel, co. Cornwall

November 1637


The cause and result of Wills' complaint against Tayrell remains unknown, although it may have been connected with the suit he brought against Richard Luke [see cause 717].


Anthony Wills was the third son of Richard Wills of Botus Fleming, co. Cornwall, and Anne, daughter of Roger Westcot of Plymouth, co. Devon. He was two months old at the Visitation of 1620.
