Perhaps his wife had originally been granted administration and died in or before 1770 leaving the administration incomplete so someone else had to apply for admon.

      The Wrefords of Morchard Bishop and Clannaborough were an ancient armigerous family and Vivian has an extensive tree of Elizabeth's ancestors back to the 1400s - although he is not always accurate it should be of use to anyone related to Elizabeth (including descendants of John and Elizabeth - if there are any).
