    Family 1 Alice [POS] WREY,   d. Bef 1572 
    Married
    • A reference to John in the Tavistock Parish Record book (in 1565) refers to John's wife as Alice. In this reference John is repeatedly referred to as 'John Glanfyld, merchant' as though this was sufficient to distinguish him from other John Glanfyld's, such as 'John Glanfelde at wyll' also mentioned in the same and other documents. With this John being a merchant it seems safe, therefore, to think he was married to an Alice before he remarried to Thomasine.

      Alice is likely to have been the mother of at least some of his children, though given the number of women who died young at this time, especially in childbirth, John could easily have had more than one wife before Thomasine.

      The Wrey pedigree (Vivian's Cornwall Visitations, p.564, citing the 1573 Visitation of Cornwall, Harl. MS. 1079, fo. 141) shows an Alice Wrey married John Glanville. The Wreys lived a few miles north of Tavistock in North Russell in Sourton parish, close enough to make it possible that the John Glanville involved was this one, and although no date is given the few events on the pedigree that do have dates make it also about right date-wise. With John and Alice both common Christian names, though, it is hard to be sure.

      A Chancery Court case of 1596 (TNA catalogue entry), ref. C 2/Eliz/W11/11, a dispute about land sold by a John Glanville to John Wrey also in Sourton parish, with the defendant one Henry Glanvile, does not add evidence one way or the other, other than to show the two families both involved with property in the parish. (The John Glanville involved in the dispute is clearly not this John nor his son; the John in the dispute could have been married to an Alice Wrey - there is nothing to indicate he was or to show he could not have been).
