    Biography
    In the Easter term of 1412 John rendered his fatherís accounts as escheator of Devon and Cornwall to the barons of the Exchequer, and he was again at Westminster in the following year for Henry Vís first Parliament. Said to be aged 30 at the time of his fatherís death in 1415, he probably took immediate possession of most of the family lands in Cornwall and of the manor of Broomford in Devon (indeed, he presented to the living of Jacobstowe in July 1416), but was not officially granted seisin of certain lands held of the King in chief until February 1417.1 Broomford attended the shire elections held at Exeter castle in 1423. After his death, which occurred on 17 Nov. 1429, the family holdings passed to his young nephew, John Prideaux.
