The grandchild is certainly Alexander Bolitho and yes, it is possible that William Lanyon had a daughter Elizabeth.
Margaret Lanyon and William Bosustow were married 26th May 1619 and her father's Will was written three weeks earlier on May 5th. The Will appears to have been proved on May 31st so the fact Margaret was named as 'my daughter Margaret' suggests that her father had died prior to the marriage. The wording in the Will also indicates that daughters Honor and Mary were probably unmarried. If that were the case then it would strengthen the possible link to the marriage of Elizabeth at Helston.
I am not sure if you have noticed but the first witness to William Lanyon's Will was 'William Bolitho'! It would be worth checking to see if there is a Will for William Bolitho so that a comparison of signiatures might be done.
Jim - a copy is on its way to you now via email. If it doesn't go through 'as is' with all images attached then I will split them into a couple of separate emails. The CRO ref for this Will is AP/L/198 William Lanyon of Morvah 1619. (And it looks like the email went through ok.
Hi CT - I would love to see William Lanyon's 1619 will too. Is there any chance that you could email it to me please?
