I just found why James was not mentioned directly in his father's will: From A2A: [no title] X 558/20 23 Oct. 1832 These documents are held at Cornwall Record Office
Contents: Release (lease for a year missing) Consideration; 10/- and natural love and affection (1) Rob. Wallis of Sennen, farmer, to (2) Jas. Wallis, his son Dwelling-houses, meeting-house, blacksmith's shops, lands and all appurtenances in village of Trereife in Sennen, now occ. Rob. and Jas. Wallis and others as tenants to (1);
there's a bit more about the other tenants - not relevant to the will but I just love that line " 10/- and natural love and affection" really makes the ancestors real!
a further item from CRO catalogue about the Wallis connection to Treeve:
X558/19 Lease, moiety of Treeve tenement, Sennen 10 Mar 1802 Description Parties: 1) Christopher Harvey, late of Sancreed, now of St Levan, yeoman 2) Robert Wallis of Madron, yeoman. Lease and release, 1) to 2), moiety of Treeve tenement, as in X 558/13, formerly in occupation of Charles Bottrell, from whom 1) purchased it. Consideration: £613
Was Robert one of the earliest "Second home owners" in Sennen?? ;D
