Families covered: Wynell-Mayow of Bray, Wyvell (Wivell) of Crediton, Wyvell of Wyvellscombe

Vivian identifies the coat of arms of the following family as: "Arg., three mullets between two bars Sa. within a bordure engrailed Sa.".
Thomas Wyvell of Crediton, Devon
m. _ Clarke of Somerset (coheir)
1. Oliver Wyvell of Maristowe, Devon
m. Alice Gifford (dau of _ Gifford of Halisburie)
  A. Thomas Wyvell of Wyvellscombe, Cornwall (bur 07.05.1632)
  m1. Thomazin Whitford (bur 09.05.1598, dau of John Whitford of Sconor)
  i. Frances Wyvell (bpt 19.04.1579, bur 08.06.1604)
  m. (13.10.1600) Gifford Willes of Lanrack
  BLG1886 identifies Thomas's 2nd marriage as on 15.12.1627 to Joanna Willis of St. Stephen's. Vivian (Wyvell of Wyvellscombe) shows that he married (in St. Stephen's) as follows:
  m2. (18.12.1628) Joanna Dawbin (d before 16.05.1667, widow of William Body then Eliaz Wills)
Vivian (Wyvell of Wyvellescombe) shows no children by this marriage and identifies Frances as Thomas's heir. BLG1886 reports that Thomas "probably was grandfather (by Joanna) of" the undermentioned Philip. As (so it appears) Wyvelscombe passed into the Willes family, it is not unlikely that, if this connection is valid, either Philip or his father was illegitimate.
