Peter Killigrew

(14 January 1700/1 - before 26 February 1719)
     Peter Killigrew was christened on 14 January 1700/1 in St Stephen's, St Albans, Hertfordshire. He was the son of Henry Killigrew Lord of Admiralty and Lucy Jervoise.
     Peter died before 26 February 1719 in St Julians, Hertfordshire. He was unmarried.

Sir Peter Killigrew

(circa 1593 - July 1668)
     Sir Peter Killigrew was born circa 1593 in England. He was aged 27 in 1620. He was the son of John Killigrew and Dorothy Monk.
     He was known as "Peter the Post". Peter was brought up "with the Earl of Bristol in Spain", attended at Court, and in his youth loved a little gambling. As the Arwenack estate had dwindled to £80 a year, his friends the Earl of Pembroke and his brother, befriended him by bestowing land on him near Cardiff to the amount of £300 p.a. in order to enable him to marry. He was loyal to the King, but took no active part in the actual war, which cost him dear, and, in addition, Lady Jane's jointure witheld his lands from him for some 16 years. He was, however, able to bring £12,000 into the estate on his succession, and was knighted by Charles II. [Gay, p.16].
     In 1646 the house was set on fire by the troops at Pendennis Castle - the last to hold out against the Cromwellian forces (in Cornwall), in order that it should not be occupied by the latter. ... As a family, however, they were courtiers and Royalists and adherents of the Stuarts to a degree which, added to the extravagance of the son and heir of the first Sir John, ended in the reduction of a rent-roll of 6000 to some 80 pounds a year. It is not surprising that the first Sir Peter, who inherited the remainder of the estates, became somewhat dubious as to a policy which meant ruin, and that he accepted the two thousand pounds voted to him by Parliament for his services, and was appointed Governer of Pendennis Castle in 1660 by General Monk. After the restoration of the monarchy, the charter of Falmouth was granted to him for his services to Charles II and his father, which naturally aided him in improving an impoverished estate ... Arwenack manor is one of those old places which felt the unfortunate blight of the Civil War, and it is probably owing in great part to the disaster which marred its extent and original grandeur that the descendants of its old owners withdrew from Falmouth, allowed the fine old avenue to become a rope-walk, and sold or leased land to toehr for the building of various houses in what had one been the park of a celebrated mansion. [Gay, p.12, 20-21]..

Biography
Killigrew stood for the open borough of Camelford at the general election of 1660, and was seated with Samuel Trelawny* on the merits of the return. He was classed as a friend by Lord Wharton, but he made no recorded speeches in the Convention and was appointed to no committees before the election was declared void. He did not stand at the by-election, nor did he sit again, though he lived for another 45 years. He was active in local affairs, and seems to have enjoyed a measure of royal favour. He hoped to succeed his father as MP for Helston in 1668, but his interest could not prevail against his fellow-courtier Sidney Godolphin I*. He continued to receive his father's £300 p.a. pension, which had been extended to cover his life. In 1673 he and John Tregagle* were appointed joint receivers of the duchy of Cornwall for life, although by a private agreement he was to receive up to £300 a year out of the office and leave its functions, salary and profits to Tregagle. In the following year he took part in an investigation into the coinage of tin and the laws of the stannaries. He continued his father's efforts to develop Falmouth, where, by 1676, a neew quay had been built, to which, depsite their strong opposition, the neighbouring ports of Truro, Penryn and Helston had to bring most of their goods.4
Killigrew remained on the Cornish commission of the peace in 1680 and was presumably opposed to exclusion. In June 1688, he was marked as 'absent' in the returns of the royal agents on the answers to the questions on the Test Act and Penal Laws, and his name was not included in the list of proposed justices of the peace. In 1697 he was reprimanded for failure to render any account of duchy revenues since the Revolution. He retired to Ludlow, but in 1702 he was found to be £3,133 in debt to the crown, and proceedings were commenced against him. He died on 8 Jan. 1705, aged 71, and was buried at Falmouth. His son had been killed in a duel by Walter Vincent II*, and Arwennack was inherited by his daughter, whose husband, Martin Lister, assumed the name of Killigrew and wrote a history of the family.5

     Tregellas p.117-8 states: I am somewhat inclined to think that this may be the Thomas Killigrew who died at Biscay in Aragon. He married twice - Johanna Herry and Jane Darrell; possibly there may be some mistake in the Christian name of the later lady. Perhaps the same Thomas who is mentioned in the journals of Roger Machado, of an embassy to Spain & Portugal, in 1488, as having entertained the traveller, whom stress of weather drove into Falmouth Harbour; and as having bequeathed, in the year 1500, one hundred marks for the rebuilding of St Budock Church. In the autumn of 1882, whilst restoring St Gluvias church, the workmen came upon some leaden coffins in good preservation, which were supposed to contain the remains of members of the Killigrew family. The coffins were not opened.

     Thomas died circa April 1501 in Penryn, Cornwall. He was buried in St Gluvias. The earliest Killigrew monument is for a brass of Thomas Killigrew and his two wives Joan & Elizabeth, and all their children. He is described as generosus and is represented in the costume of the latter part of the fifteenth century, in a long handsome robe trimmed with fur, and carries on his right shoulder his head, after the fashion of the time - a wealthy merchant, in all probability.
