EDMUND TREMAYNE (d. 1582), clerk of the privy council, was second son of Thomas Tremayne of Collacombe, Lamerton, where his family had been established since 1366. His mother was Philippa, eldest daughter of Roger Grenville of Stow. Of this marriage were born 16 children, of whom four - Edmund, Richard, and the twins Nicholas and Andrew acquired some reputation. RICHARD TREMAYNE (d. 1584), fourth son, was sent to Exeter College, Oxford, where he graduated B.A. in 1547-8, and proceeded to M.A. He vacated his fellowship by flying to Germany in the first year of Mary's reign. His epitaph states he "fled for the gospel's sake." He was reckoned among the conspirators against the queen, and in 1556 was declared a traitor with his brother Nicholas and others concerned in Sir Anthony Kingston's plot. He returned to favour under Elizabeth. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
