John Trefusis of St. Mabyn (bpt 1612, d before 15.02.1654)
m. (18.02.1638) Elizabeth Drake (bpt 16.01.1622, dau of Sir Francis Drake, Bart)
1. Francis Trefusis of Trefusis (b 08.07.1650, d 05.11.1680)
m. (23.07.1672) Bridget Rolle (d 28.08.1721, dau of Robert Rolle of Hainton Satchville by Arabella, dau of Theophilus Clinton, 4th Earl of Lincoln & 12th Baron Clinton)
  A. Francis Trefusis of Trefusis (bpt 04.05.1673, dsp bur 22.09.1692)
  B. Samuel Trefusis of Trefusis (bpt 06.10.1676, bur 04.04.1724)
BP1934 identfies Samuel's wife (and mother of Robert) as Elizabeth Affleck but does not identify the wife of their son Robert. BEB1841 (Cotton of Connington) identifies the husband of Alice Cotton (dau/heir of Robert Cotton of Hatley St. George, brother of Sir John, 3rd Bart) as Robert, with them having a son Robert. Furthermore, BP1934 (Affleck) identifies Elizabeth Affleck as married (1737) to Robert Cotton Trefusis (of the next generation). However, Vivian shows Samuel's wife as Alice, dau/heir of Sir Robert Cotton, Bart (1st or 6th?), and their son Robert as husband of Elizabeth Affleck. The additional details provided by Vivian (on dates, etc.) lead us to follow Vivian rather than Burke's on the order of the wives but we suspect that BEB1841 was correct in identifying Alice Cotton as ...
