    Executor and Residual Beneficiary 
    • Nathaniel was executor of the will of Francis Champernoun of Stokenham, being granted probate in Totnes on 19 April 1632.
      A comparison of bequests in the will and of the inventory suggests Nathaniel was the main beneficiary, but we do not know what debts Francis may have had, and there will have been some expenses as well.

    • Was this Nathaniel's burial? I think possibly. 'Lough Dromd' could be the name of a ship or boat. The timing fits well (children up to 1635 but then none) and I have not managed to find a burial of Nathaniel in Stokenham or Slapton.
      But this may be a red herring.

    Notes 
    • The surname



      Although Nathaniel was recorded in PRs with the surname Chamborne when he married, and Chambern or Chambren when his children were baptised, the name was recorded as Champernon in the will of Francis Champernowne, and as Champernowne in the official statements accompanying the will and inventory of Francis.

      It is worth noting that Francis, whilst similarly Champernon or Champernowne in the probate documents was recorded as Francis Chamberne in the burial PR entry. The date of the will being written, the burial and the probate inventory being made, together with the burial being in Stokenham and the probate documents showing Francis was of Stokenham, and also the rare (unique in Stokenham) name leave no doubt that Francis Chamberne was the same person as Francis Champernowne, and so I believe we can safely conclude too that Nathaniel Chambern was the same person as Nathaniel Champernowne.
    • (Research):Nathaniel was the residual and probably main beneficiary of Francis Champernoun, who was buried in Stokenham in 1632; were Francis and his wife the parents of Nathaniel? Or was Francis maybe a brother?

      It is unusual for will and probate statement not to show the relationship, even if it was a complicated one (e.g. 2nd cousin once removed) you might expect to see him described as kinsman. Francis will only survives as a transcript made pre-WW2 by Miss Olive Moger and she was probably copying a transcript so there is the possibility for errors, including the omission of a relationship, to slip in. 

      If Nathaniel was baptised in Modbury the PR entry for the event probably does not survive; the surviving registers date from 1601 (apart from a few earlier marriages), and BTs from 1613. A Wilmot daughter of William and Sibely CHAMBERNE was baptised in Modbury in 1601 so possibly they were the parents.
      In Stoke Fleming a William Chamberne married Margery Truste in 1600; it appears may have been Champernouns in the area for a while.
      There were gentry Champernouns in Dartington and Modbury. I suspect that we are somehow related to them, especially with Nathaniel's marriage taking place at Modbury. The Modbury ones have been there since the C13th (at least) so a link to the gentry could be a long way back!

      I have, though, found that in a will written by one Elizabeth Champernown of Modbury in 1637 she refers to 'Messuages lands and tenements ... by the name of Torr Crosse situate and being in the parishes of Stokenham and Shipton in ... Devon'. Torcross is in Stokenham, it is not in or near any Shipton; I suspect that when the register copy of the will was made Slapton was misread. Although Torcross is not in Slapton parish, land including Torcross could cross the parish boundary.
      Was it this link with Slapton and Stokenham that led to Champernowns living there? - a wealthy Champernoun helping a poor relation? Or at least aware of his need for some land to farm?

    • From PR entry (image on DFHS website, viewed 25 April 2016)
      "October Nathaniell Chamborne married Honer Gey the first day of october" - under heading 'Mariages 1625'

      That the wife of Nathaniel who had a family in Stokenham was called Honour is known from the PR entry for the baptism of their last child Thomas (the entries for their other children only naming the father). That and the date, 11 months before the baptism of the first child in Stokenham, with the pretty uncommon name Nathaniel Cham(pernown) strongly suggest this Modbury marriage is the right couple.
