Pedigree of Hamley shows:

Sir John Hamely Knt, Sheriff of Cornwall. Held Tregynnou, Halwyn & c. Died 2 May 1346. Inq. p m. 21st Edward III.

I suspect it mans Inquest post mortem, in most case if appears after the death date. Example

Edward III reign 1327 to 1377, therefore 21 years was 1348.

This along with my last question, about Prov,, do not appear in any Genealogical Abbreviation lists or Acronyms that I could find on the internet. including WikiTree's list.  How do these get added to the WikiTree list?

Close.  It actually stands for inquisition post-mortem (not inquest).

Thanks. As the area is Cornwall which was directly owned by the crown I suspect this was a legal review of what land was being left to who in the family. The King would want to know who owed him fealty and payment for taking over the lands.
