William Prideaux of Trevose, in the parish of St. Merryn, married Johanna daughter of John Mundy of Rialton, brother of the last Prior of Bodmin, through whose influence he was granted by the convent [monastery] a lease, dated 20th October 29th Henry VIII (1537) to him and Johanna the daughter of John Munday, whom he "God permitting, intended to marry", and the survivor of them, of the manor of Padstow, together with the advowson of the Vicarage of the Church, which lease was afterwards confirmed in the Court of Augmentation.
