1609. Francis Tregian to Reg: Haweis senr. gen: Parke Ollye held by Alexr. Angove jure Cheston his wife.
Lives: Reynold Haweis Junr. & Francis, sons of leasee.

Now, a Francis Tregian was the father-in-law of Reginald Haweis, but according to the Haweis Visitation (p. 583 - addenda) the marriage of Reginald with his daughter was without issue, and Reg. then went on to marry Jane Marke and have a number of children. Other versions have Reg's son David being a product of the first marriage. The Francis Tregian above is probably a brother-in-law of Reginald, not his father-in-law.

The closest Angove family of merit resided at Illogan, where Jenkin Angove was important enough to get himself taxed in the 1559 subsidy.

This Jenkin died in 1570 and his son Richard in 1591.

Richard's daughter Margaret was married to a John Haweis (perhaps a brother of Reginald). John and Margaret had children, all at Redruth from about 1593 to 1606. John was buried at Redruth in 1616 and Margaret in 1639.

Richard also has a son Alexander, b. 1565 at Illogan, died 1645 at Phillack. Alexander's wife was Cheston, maiden name unknown, and they are person named above as holding Parke Ollye. Note that Alexander is holding the land in right of his wife (jure).

Alexander and Cheston named their second son Reginald/Reynold.
The Visitation mentions that Reg. Haweis had a son-in-law, Richard Angove, named in his will. There is another Richard Angove who is a candidate to be a son-in-law of Reg. Haweis, this would be Richard b. 1584, son of a John Angove, and nephew of Alexander.

Still, with Alexander holding in right of his wife, and with the several Haweis/Angove connections, and Alexander naming a son Reynold, I cannot help but wonder if Cheston was a Haweis by birth.
