Families covered: Plumleigh (Plumley) of Dartmouth, Plumleigh of St. Mabyn

John Plumley of Dartmouth, Devon
Vivian (Devon) shows that John had 3 sons by his 1st wife (William, Thomas (m. Elizabeth Shapley) & Robert) and 4 sons by his 2nd wife (Ferdinando, Thomas (dsp), Lewis & John). However, Vivian (Cornwall) shows only that John had unnamed issue by his 1st wife and mentions only Thomas (m. Elizabeth Shapleigh) by his 2nd wife. As Vivian produced his work on Devon after his work on Cornwall, we follow the former.
