  • Notes 
    • The records show that the Wadland family had been settled in Halwell for the greater part of the sixteenth century and for the whole of the seventeenth. During most of that time they were closely associated with the Peeks. The first mention found refers to Walter Wadland, who was assessed for goods in 1550/51. In 1569 John Wadland was named in the muster roll for Halwell as a pikeman along with Richard Pecke. During the first half of the seventeenth century two brothers, John Wadland, senior, and Leonard Wadland, senior, accumulated a considerable amount of property and land in Halwell parish, and it was their line with which the Peeks were particularly associated. On 25 November 1618 John Wadland, senior, married Alice Kinge of Harberton by licence, and no doubt he and his wife became closely acquainted with their contemporary, Richard Peeke (born c.1594) (see note 5), and the latter's widow Jane after her husband's death. In 1641/42 John Wadland senior, and his son John (born c.1620) both signed the Protestation Roll for Halwell. In 1647 John Wadland, senior, was listed on the subsidy roll, as before, for Halwell, but the name "John Wadland of Halwell" also appeared on the Cornworthy roll for the first time. On 6 September 1668 John Wadland junior's daughter Grace married Jane Peeke's elder son Richard at Blackawton as his second wife, and their second daughter Margaret Peeke was named after Grace's mother Margaret Wadland. On 25 July 1660 John Wadland, senior, was buried at Halwell. On 15 September 1656 Leonard Wadland, the above mentioned Grace's younger brother, was born at Halwell, son of John Wadland junior and his wife Margaret. It was this Leonard Wadland (named after his uncle Leonard Wadland) who acted as bondsman for his friend John Peeke, half-brother of Richard Peeke, when John was married by licence to Mary Robbins at Harberton in April 1680.
