About John William Pepperell

B. John, the son of John and Sisily, again is identified by a will and burial entry. This will, made 5th August 1665 when presumably he knew he was dying, names four sons, Nicholas received a pair of looms and the residue, William £15, Richard and John £10 each. Those same boys were left bequests in the will of their uncle William. The family lived at “Corscom” – that is “Coltscomb” – about a mile inland from Slapton. John was almost certainly a small farmer and may well have been the one fined by the Manor Court in 1661 for ploughing his grassland. Earlier, in 1642, he took the Protestation oath to uphold his Protestant religion.
