About John Prowse (Prouze), II

John Prowse, II, gentleman of Tiverton, who, according to his father's Inq. p.m.., was 59(?) at his death, received from feoffees the large Plymouth manor of Western Peverel, worth by the year, L18.7.2., with Chevythorn and Tiverton property worth a further L5.10. But at John II's own death, September 11, 1598, his Inq. p.m., taken in 1601, showed that, by then, all the property was tied by entail upon descendants and relatives with tenure for life.
