Agnes Prest the martyr, Exeter, 1557
Posted by: Carol A Metcalf (ID *****2373) Date: January 12, 2003 at 12:33:50

I'm looking for information on the family and descendents of Agnes Prest who was marytred (burnt at the stake) for her Protestant beliefs on August 15, 1557, at Southernhay outside Exeter, Devon, during the reign of "Bloody" Queen Mary (Tudor). She is reported to have been from Cornwall and married a man who lived in Launceston, Cornwall. She and her husband were both spinners by trade.

I'd appreciate any further information on this family.
