Families covered: Prideaux of Prideaux

(1) For the early generations in his work on Devon, Vivian spells the name of this family "Predieux" then "Pridias". However, in his work on Cornwall he uses the more traditional spelling of Prideaux (as does Commoners).
(2) Commoners (vol I, Prideaux-Brune of Place) suggests that the following Paganus was "Lord of Prideaux, before the Conquest". Commoners (vol IV) suggests that he came into England with William the Conqueror. Vivian reports that he was Lord of Prideaux "in the Conqueror's time" (Cornwall) and "in the Conquest time" (Devon).
