    An undated charter summarized in the Catalogue of Ancient Deeds- gives the following:

    "by Alan Bloyou lord of Treyudwal, to William de Brevannek of the release made by Sir Ralph Bloyou hi father to Robert de Brevannek son of Clarice, in frank marriage with Rose, Ralph's niece (nepte), of the service Robert and his ancestors used to do to Ralph and his ancestors for their tenement in Brevanneck and Penmeneth, to hold to the said Robert and his heirs by the said Rose by payment of 12d yearly to the said Ralph at Michaelmas for all service; also grant that the said William, his heirs and assigns, should not be required to do suit of court outside the manor of Treruwal, nor should their beasts, or distresses, be carried outside the said manor of Tregewal." (1)

    From the numerous references to Brevannek and Penmeneth in the same catalogue, it appears that these places were in the neighborhood of Truthwall, however, the exact locality is not known. (2)

    Inq. post mortem Oct. 1306 Bloyou, Cornwall

    In 1303 Alan Blogiou held two Mortain's fees in Treuval in the hundred of Penwith and two fees in Polrode and Donnant (Duvenant) in the hundred of Trigg. The words "in custodia regis" in the margin probably indicate that at the time of the assessment Alan had not obtained seisin. In 1306 the assessment of the aid states that John Moveron and Henry Trethewy held Alan Bloyou's manor of Treuial, while Alice Carminow (Alan Bloyou's granddaughter) was liable for an aid of £4 in respect of the manors of Polrode and Donnant.(1)

    In 1309 there was an assignment of dower to Joan, the widow of Alan Bloihou, where we find that she had inter alia a knight's fee in Delyamur and Neivalle (Deliomure and Newhall), a knight's fee in Donaunt Chapel and one twelfth of a knight's fee in Trewythred. (2)

    The custody of Alan's lands was committed to Henry Beaurepeir, a yeoman of Queen Margaret, and the presentation of a clerk to Ludgvan was made by the king by reason of Ralph's minority in 1312. In 1315 the king granted that Henry Beaurepeir and John de Stoure, to whom the former had demised the custody of Alan's lands, should not be harassed for waste.(3)

    By a fine levied in 1324, 34 messuages including Nanskoyk Magna and Nanskoyk Parva were given to Walter Bluet and Johanna and were to pass to her son Ralph upon her death.(4)

    In 28 Edward III the advowson of Ludgvan and the manors of Tregewal (Truthwall) and Nayscoyk were demised by fine by Robert de Loccombe and Ralph Mayndy, the proctors of trustees of Elizabeth, to Nigel Loryng, chivaler, and Margaret his wife.(5) That this fine was a real transfer is evident from the Plea Rolls for 12 Henry VI (1434) where John Broughten, armiger, sued Thomas Carmynowe, armiger, and Edmund Kendall, clerk, for the next presentation to Ludgvan, stating that Elizabeth daughter of Alan Bloyou, at that time wife of Ralph Beaupelle, enfeoffed Nigel Loryng in 28 Edward III.(6)
