  • Notes 
    • Vivian's 1874 edition of the 1620 visitation of Cornwall (citation details below), in the Launce pedigree on page 124, calls the wife of John Launce simply "Mary Da. of Polewheele of Polewheele". The Launce pedigree on page 280 of Vivian's 1887 combined edition of the 1530, 1573, and 1620 visitations (citation details below) calls her "Mary, da. of John Polewheele of Polewheele."

      The Polwhele pedigree on page 376 of the same book gives "Mary" who "mar. John Launce" as a sister of John Polewhele of Polewhele who married Grace Lower, and a daughter of John Polewhele of Polewhele who married a daughter of John Tresawell.

      We think this is chronologically implausible, and that Mary Polewhele, wife of John Launce, is more likely to have been a daughter, not a sister, of John Polewhele who married Grace Lower.
