A History of the Tregonwell Family

A History of the Tregonwell Family

We were lucky to be given this 120 foolscap page typescript by the author himself, Sir Mervyn Medlycott. It is his last remaining sixth copy. If anyone remembers carbon copies they will be aware that the quality of the copies decreases with the number of copies. However it is readable and I have the task of transcribing it. Only 30 more pages to go!

    • Hi Roger,
      Many thanks for your comment. Unfortunately it seems to have been truncated – I only got “Alice Tregonwell the sister of John Proctor to Henrgrandmothrry lV is my 12 x greatmother I have always had a fascination with this family and am very apre”
      Was there more? I ought to update this post as I have now transcribed it all. We were wishing to work with Sir Mervyn on publishing this, but unfortunately he passed away last year, although one of his descendants, Tim Tregonwell Munro Smith is now a member of our history group.
      I have been going through the document and looking up the references. We have much new information on the disputes of the Tregonwell family over inheritance of the Milton Abbas estate. It is very complicated, involving properties in London, and the life of Mary Davies. There is a book ‘Inheritance: The Lost History of Mary Davies: A Story of Property, Marriage and Madness’, Leo Hollis, 2021′ which sheds light on this. We have most of the research but the writing up is another matter!
      Kind regards,
      Bryan
