On my 'to do' list to go through those Rosewarne Wills again carefully and see what else might be lurking there.
Regards Edmund Nicholas and Zennor - I see the point and perhaps should have explained myself a little better.
As far as I am aware Edmund Nicholas would probably not have been 'of Zennor' at any time. His connection is through his wife's brother and even then that immediate family did not seem to have a lot to do with Zennor.
Margaret Daniel was 'of Morvah' when she married Edmund at Sennen and most of her family, apart from the odd marriage, were all at Morvah. (Immediate family i.e. siblings.)
I think the key element of the conversation was identifying the correct Parish given Sennen and Zennor can look extremely similar in many of those old documents.
Just like St Ives and St Just - don't know how many times I have seen them confused. ;D
Unfortunately I am not at home with my notes, but the suggestion that the John Glasson you mention having other family that we now of is very interesting and I would be keen to assist with endeavouring to prove or disprove the theory when I get home.

I would like to refer to the original query and a few comments made after that
Joseph Glasson d 1720 mentions in his will
sisters Mary Mitchell and Elizabeth Nicholas
Kinsmen Peter Wallish, Jane Wallis and Joseph Paul of Sennen & his wife Blanch Glasson, d 1724, mentions:
Elizabeth daughter of Thomas Nicholas
Elizabeth daughter of Joseph Paul
Simon son of James Mitchell
Arthur & James, sons of Nicholas Berryman of Paul
Jane daughter of Peter Wallish
There was also an Eleanor Glasson buried at St Levanin 1694.
Does anyone have any more information about there Glassons
Still no luck in identifying Joseph's brother John GLASSON unfortunately.
Just a thought - I have often wondered if the John Glasson mentioned as the brother of Joseph could have been the man who married Honor Perry of Zennor and then went on to Madron...?
I have been reading through this for a while now and I keep coming back to Zenobia's suggestion that John Glasson, buried about 1714 at Madron, married to Honor Perry, was likely the brother referred to in Josephs will. With no facts at hand to prove it I would just like to suggest that by referring to his brothers children (1s each), and then directly to his sisters, suggests to me that his brother was possibly deceased.
Londoner states that an Eleanor Glasson was buried at St Levan in 1694. John and Honor Glasson had a daughter Eleanor who was baptised in 1685 and who is not mentioned in either of her parents wills, so she could easily be the burial in 1694.
One of the signatories to Honor Glasson's will in 1739 was Nicholas Wallis. John and Honor Glasson had a grandson named Joseph Glasson, bap 1721 at Madron.
