Although he was not the eldest son Richard was the sole executor and main beneficiary in his father's will. He farmed at Trekillick in the parish of Lanivet, and had eight children with his wife Frances. Their eldest daughter Mary (qv) married her cousin Robert Thomas (qv). Their eldest son William did not marry, and was described as 'Gentleman of Lanivet' in his will which identified some of his extensive landholdings, which he bequeathed to his younger brothers Richard and Thomas. The next son John died young, although his parents must have had another son with the same name as John was named as a beneficiary in his father's and brother William's wills, although he has not been found in the baptism register. Their next two daughters were Susanna who married John Moyle of Bodmin; and Frances who married John Varcoe, a farmer of St Dennis where their eight children were born. The next two sons were Richard and Thomas, and their youngest daughter Thamosin married John Sweet of Withiel.
