Thomas Perrott Inscription in Family Bible

The Bishop's Transcripts for Laugharne do record a "Thomas and Jane Perrott" having a daughter Sarah in 1678. It's frustrating that we've found no further hard evidence about him.

An earlier "Thomas Perrott" appears in the debts owed/owing list in Watkin Perrott's will in 1629. Presumably the same Thomas whose will in 1633 reads: "To be buried in Laugharne Church. Daughters, Jane, Margaret & Elizabeth. All my goods to my wife Margaret and her 'three children'. Son Walter, executor" (not held by NLW.)

An account of early Perrot family ownership of lands in Laugharne is set out in the Mayo Genealogy below

The above refers to Barnwell's NOTES ON THE PERROT FAMILY in Arch. Camb. 3rd series No. XLI January 1865

"Who this John Perrot of Haverfordwest is is uncertain, unless it was his uncle John, the younger son of Sir Thomas Perrot. It may, however, have been a son of this John Perrot: at any rate he was probably a near kinsman. It has been stated that Sir William Perrot died at the battle of Hedgecot, or Banbury, in 1469,— a statement disproved by his being alive nearly forty years afterwards. His father-in-law, however, Sir Harry Wogan, and his kinsman, Jankyn Perrot of Scotsborough, were among the slain on that occasion. (See Warkworth Chronicle.) The following are the names of those who perished in this battle :—Sir Roger Vaughan, Knight; Harry Wogan, son and heir; Thomas ap Rosse- here (Roger) Vaughan, Esquire; Watkin Thomas, son of Roger Vaughan ; Yvan ap John of Merwyke ; Davy ap Jankyn of Limeric; Harry Done (Dwnn) of Picton ; John Done of Kidwelly; Rhys ap Morgan of Ulster; Jankyn Perot of Scotsborough; John Eneand (?Eynion) of Pembrokeshire; and John Contour of Hereford.

An inquisition was taken at Tallacharn, in Carmarthenshire (2 Eliz.), before John Vaughan, gentleman, on the possessions of William Perrot, deceased. Who this William Perrot is doubtful. It could not have been Sir William Perrot, the father of Sir Owen; nor the brother of the Lord Deputy, whose name was William, as he died near Dublin in 1597. Sir John Perrot, the Lord Deputy, was the owner of Tallacharn at the time of his attainder; so that it appears to have continued in the family down to that period. It is probable that this William is the son of that John Perrot whom we have seen put in possession of the estate as the representative of Sir William Perrot."
