This MP may have been the William, son of John Moun, who was still a child when, in the 1380s, apparently for the purpose of settling the differences between John Trevarthian* and the Eyrs, it was agreed that he should marry one Idonea, probably a member of Trevarthian’s family.1 Either the same or another William Moun attended the shire elections held at Lostwithiel in March 1421 and in 1427, and a year later was assessed for payment of a parliamentary subsidy as the holder of lands not only in the Cornish hundreds of Penwith and Stratton but also of a quarter of a knight’s fee in Puslinch in Newton Ferrers, Devon.2
