Nicholas Arundell

(after 1357 - )
     Nicholas Arundell married Elizabeth Pellor, daughter of John Pellocer. Burke's Commoners identifies Nicholas's wife as Jane, daughter of Peller, Lord of Peller. BE1883 identifies her as ...Elizabeth Pellocer (daughter of John Pellocer). Nicholas Arundell was born after 1357. He was the son of Ralph Arundell and Jane Trerice.
     There is one other piece of evidence that may be relevant. In 1377 Sir William Lambourne and Joan his wife abducted Nicholas, son and heir of Ralph Arundell of Trerice, a minor in ward of John Tynton (Cor. Reg. Conw., 50 Edw. III, Trin. m. 120). If the construction above is correct then Joan kidnapped her step-son from her first marriage, perhaps with a view to marrying him to her very young daughter, Annora, by her second husband.

Ralph Arundell

(before 1340? - between July 1369 and November 1369)
     Arundell of Trerice, This was a junior branch of the Arundells of Lanherne which appears to have been established in the fourteenth century, probably by a younger son. According to Carew's Survey of Cornwall a Ralph Arundell married Jane/Joan, the daughter of Michael Trerise, during the reign of Edward III. Compare Public Record Office JUST I/1476, mem.73 dorse, July 1367 in which the defendants include Ralph Arundell of Treres and Joan his wife. AR/1/104 is a grant from Sir John Arundell to Ralph Arundell of Trerys in 1358. This Ralph died between July and November 1369 (AR/1/241; AR/32/1 and AR/1/846), and had at least two sons, Nicholas (AR/41/6) and Thomas (AR/41/5), and a daughter Joan (AR/32/1). There is no record of the split in the Lanherne archive and unfortunately the archive of the Arundells of Trerice has disappeared virtually without trace.
A.L. Rowse described the Arundells as 'the richest and best-beloved of all Cornish families' (Tudor Cornwall, p. 16.) in Tudor times. From small beginnings in the early 1200s, when their only possession was the manor of Treloy in St Columb Major parish, they reached the height of their wealth and influence in the late sixteenth century with twenty-eight manors in Cornwall as well as manors and other properties in Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire, the greatest extent of their land-holdings.
The earliest record of an Arundell in Cornwall is in 1131 in the Pipe Roll but no connection can be demonstrated between that individual and the later Arundells of Lanherne. An Arundell occurs in Dorset and Somerset in Domesday Book and there are also instances of the name in Devon in the Middle Ages but again there is no evidence to link these people with the Cornish Arundells. The Devonshire manors of Morchard Arundell and Uton Arundell received their affixes from their ownership by the Cornish family.
The Arundells extended their land-holdings and rose to prominence through a series of good marriages to wealthy heiresses. Some of their property was purchased but the majority was acquired in this way from the mid-thirteenth century to the late 1500s. Between these dates the Arundells were active locally and nationally. Ralph Arundell was sheriff of Cornwall in 1259-60 and John Arundell became Bishop of Exeter in 1502. Sir John Arundell fought for Henry VI at the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471 and his grandson was one of those appointed to put down the Cornish rebellion of 1497-8. Two Arundells served as stewards of the Duchy of Cornwall in the sixteenth century and Arundells led Royalist troops during the Civil War. Branches of the family were established at Trerice and Tolverne by younger sons in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The influence of the Arundells declined after the Reformation, when their staunch adherence to Catholicism made them ineligible for public office, but they remained prominent in Cornwall as long as they retained their lands there.
The direct male line of the family died out in 1701, the estates being inherited by an heiress and then in 1739 passing to the Wardour Arundells on the marriage of Mary Arundell to her distant cousin Henry Arundell, later seventh Baron of Wardour. From the late seventeenth century the family had ceased to live permanently in Cornwall and when financial problems struck the Cornish estates were at first heavily mortgaged and then, in the late 18th century, began to be sold.
The following is an account of the direct descent of the family, noting the additions of land to the estate. The evidence for the 14th century is not very clear and there may have been another John Arundell at that time.
     Ralph Arundell lived at Kenelhelwas, Cornwall?. He was born before 1340? In England. Ralph Arundel (a 1358) BE1883 reports that this Ralph was "living in the 31st of Edward III" (ie. 1358) which looks odd given that Burke's Commoners reports that he married Joan Trerice in 1422. There is clearly something wrong with this but hereafter we generally follow BE1883 until it separates from the information provided by Burke's Commoners.
The Commoners give his parents Sir Oliver Arundel, Lord of Carshah, or the Engish Castle, who married Margery, duaghter and co-heir of Ralph, Lord Albeminster, son of George, Lord Arundel, adn the Lady Maude, his wife, and left a son and heir Ralph. He was the son of Randel Arundell and Elizabeth Steward.
     Ralph Arundell married Jane Trerice, daughter of Michael Trerice and Alice Flamoke, before 1367. According to Carew's Survey of Cornwall a Ralph Arundell married Jane/Joan, the daughter of Michael Trerise, during the reign of Edward III. Compare Public Record Office JUST I/1476, mem.73 dorse, July 1367 in which the defendants include Ralph Arundell of Treres and Joan his wife. AR/1/104 is a grant from Sir John Arundell to Ralph Arundell of Trerys in 1358. This Ralph died between July and November 1369 (AR/1/241; AR/32/1 and AR/1/846), and had at least two sons, Nicholas (AR/41/6) and Thomas (AR/41/5), and a daughter Joan (AR/32/1).
There is no record of the split in the Lanherne archive and unfortunately the archive of the Arundells of Trerice has disappeared virtually without trace.

Randel Arundell

     Randel Arundell was born in England. www.tudorplace.comstates: [Much of this page was originally released within 'Arundell1'. It was extracted on 15.08.04 following additional input from Burke's Commoners.]
(1) Whilst it is believed that this family descended from the Arundells of Lanherne, the connection has not yet been proven to our satisfaction. Burke's Commoners suggests that the Thomas who is shown below as possible progenitor of the family was second son of
Sir John of Lanherne by Eleanor Lamborne. However, BP1934 (Arundell of Wardour) indicates that the Thomas who was that second son was 'of Lanhadron' and, whilst mentioning that he was ancestor of the Arundells of Tolverne, shows different wife/wives and does not mention the Arundels of Trerice. We therefore view that connection as unlikely.

Remfrey Arundell

     The Cornwall Record Office states: The earliest record of an Arundell in Cornwall is in 1131 in the Pipe Roll but no connection can be demonstrated between that individual and the later Arundells of Lanherne. An Arundell occurs in Dorset and Somerset in Domesday Book and there are also instances of the name in Devon in the Middle Ages but again there is no evidence to link these people with the Cornish Arundells. The Devonshire manors of Morchard Arundell and Uton Arundell received their affixes from their ownership by the Cornish family.
     Remfrey Arundell I; floruit 1230-50; in possession of Treloy manor in circa 1230; possibly married to Maud.
