    ---------------

    Although the information on Henry is a little off, the following identifies where the manor of Bodrugan was:

    ST. GORRAN, in the deanery and in the east division of the hundred of Powder, lies about two miles from Mevagissey, which is the post-office town; about five from Tregony, and about six from St. Austell. The principal villages in this parish, exclusively of the church-town, are Port-East or Gorran haven, where great quantities of pilchards are taken and cured, and a few coals imported; Boswringan; Penare or Pennair; Rescassa; Tregavaras; and Trevarick. There is a small fishingcove called Porthmellin....

    The manor of Bodrugan or Bodrigan belonged to an ancient family of that name, who held it under the Champernowns. This family became extinct in the male line of its elder branch, about the year 1330. In the reign of Richard III. this place was the property and seat of Sir Henry Bodrugan, an opulent knight, whose name is said to have been originally Trenowth. It does not appear how he was connected, or whether he was at all connected, with the ancient Bodrugan family; it is very probable that he took the name, as was not unusual, upon settling at this barton. Hals speaks of this change of name, but Tonkin doubts it. Leland, who lived so near his time, does not mention the circumstance; but Norden, writing in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, calls him Sir Henry Trenowth. It is certain, however, that he bore the name of Bodrugan; and, having been attainted on the accession of King Henry VII., fled into Ireland, and his large estates, including this manor and barton, were seized by the crown. Tradition relates, that Sir Henry Bodrugan was in arms in Cornwall, against the Earl of Richmond; that he was defeated on a moor not far from his own castle, by Sir Richard Edgcumbe and Trevanion; and that he made his escape by a desperate leap from the cliff into the sea, where a boat was ready to receive him. Most of Bodrugan's estates, including this manor, were granted to Sir Richard Edgcumbe, and now belong to his descendant the Earl of MountEdgcumbe.

    NOTE: People in SGM, as well as the Complete Peerage above, treat him as a son of Odo. Many people had different names depending on their properties.
