Pedigree of Michael Rosewarne of Rosewarne, Cornwall, from the Herald's Visitation of 1573[1]

A typed transcript of the pedigree appears in Gillian Rosewarne's book 'Romance of the Rosewarnes'. The pedigree shows fives generations of the Rosewarne family:

Generation 1: William Rosowhorne = Alys d/o Laurens Basset of Tehyddy in Cornwall

Generation 2: William Rosowhorne = Margery d/o Stephin Boswydell

Generation 3: John Rosowhorne = Anne d/o Thomas St Aubyn

Generation 4 - children of John & Anne:

  • Mychell Rosowhorne of Rosowhorne = Crystyan d/o John Trenhell
  • Bennet (2nd son) = Katherin d/o Thomas Coswyn
  • Anne = John Loveless
  • Beatrix = John Glasson

Generation 5:

  • Children of Mychell & Crystyan - Thomas (son & heir), John (2nd son), Katherin, Jane, Mary, Grace & Crystyan
  • Children of Bennet & Katherin - Thomas (1st son), Richard (2nd son), Grace, Margat & Jane

The pedigree in its entirety cannot be taken too literally. William and Alys who head the pedigree probably lived around 1300 so they cannot be the great grandparents of Michael Rosewarne.

The Rosewarne pedigree in Vivian's Visitations of Cornwall[2] is compilation of Michael's pedigree from 1573 with that of Peter Rosewaran of Carlyan from 1620,[3] together with, not always reliable, additions by Vivian.
