JOHN WHALESBOROUGH.  Born c1369, his fatherís IPM in March 1381/82 says he was 15 years old, however an entry in the fine rolls regarding the dispute over his fatherís lands states he was only 13. [2,3] He apparently didnít make proof of his age until June 1391 supporting the later birthdate.  His wardship was first committed to his mother and her 2nd husband, then passed in June 1383 to William, Lord Botreaux, with whom they remained until he proved his age in June 1391 and gained control over his inheritance. He has a license to celebrate at Lamorran 20 December 1391.  He was Commissioner of Array for Cornwall in 1399, 1403 and 1405; Knight of the Shire for Cornwall in 1402; Justice of the Peace 1403-1407. 
He married, by 1399, Joan, daughter of Sir John Raleigh, of Nettlecombe, Somersetshire. On the death of her brother Simon, the estates of Raleigh of Nettlecombe would pass to her son Thomas, and then to his daughter Elizabeth. [7,8,9] She married 2ndly, Sir Thomas Pomeroy, and died testate in 1435/6; she is buried in Grey
Friars in London. [10,11]
He died 10 Jan 1418 with writ to take his lands into the Kingís hands on 17 January. [12,13] An IPM was taken which I have not yet seen but a subsequent Close Roll writ shows him holding land at Whalesborough, Uthno, Treroos, Byryherber, Raghtre, Skywyek, Boskarne, Trewarueneth, Lamelwyn, Lantyrek, Chynans, Treseder and Lancarf.
