About John Nance

John Nance, gentleman, born Lelant 1544, made will 1613, died at St. Ives 1614. Wife Johan. Six children:

VII.b. Richard Nance, land owner St. Ives 1629, the father of two daughters, died St. Ives 1669. (I once believed this was possibly our ancestor, but after three years, I now find I was very much in error.)

VII.c. Henry Nance, said to have gone to sea (?). A 1626 marriage at London, shows Henry Nance, sailor, married Isabel Lee, widow. Doubtless the same.

VII.d. Anne, married Thomas Purefoy, merchant St. Ives.

VII.e. Grace, married Ellis, widow in 1613.

VII.f. Elizabeth, married Clarke.

VII.a. William Nance in 1645 civil war, churchwarden of St. Ives 1650, died 1667. Two daughters and one known son
