(circa 1554 - 12 August 1605)
     John Killigrew was born circa 1554 in 'Arwenack', Budock, Cornwall. He was aged over 30 in 1584 at the inquisition into the death of his father. He was the son of Sir John Killigrew and Mary Wolverston.

     He was Captain/Governor of Pendennis Castle (fort). In 1584 he petitioned for an increase of the defensive power of the Castle and offered to find men among his tenants, the outlay of which would amount to some 1500 pounds. "I have been 12 months suitor about it", he wrote, "and have made liberal offer, considering my beggarly estate, for its fortifying". A brave effort, considering he was in debt, and his pay as Governor amounted to £118.12.6 p.a..
     Sir John Killigrew re warrant Jan 1584/5 - Signet Bills.
     State Papers list: Hatton to Mildmaye: for stalling John Killigrew's debt as collector of the subsidy in Cornwall; he has inherited his father's debts and has spent £100 on repairing a castle, as the Justices of the Peace there report; Richemond; 12 Dec.1586.
     He was dismissed as Vice-Admiral in 1589 having been appointed in 1587 & 1589. He was actively engaged in piracy and soon fell foul of the Privy Council for plundering some Danish ships, but for nearly two years defied all attempts to question him. His arrest was first ordered in Oct 1587, and again in April and September the following year. In Nov 15888 he was outlawed while travelling around Cornwall with a band of armed retainers, and the sheriff was ordered to raise the Posse Comitatus, and to enter Pendennis Castle if that proved necessary to effect his arrest. Killigrew left for London where in December the Lord Mayor was ordered to arrest him, but failed to find him. In March 1589 another warrant for his arrest was issued, while the following month the Lord High Admiral was told to remove him from the vice admiralty. Finally, in fury at their failure to catch a man, who, they said, 'fleeteth from place to place and cannot be had or taken in contempt of all law and government;, the Privy Council in July 1589 asked the Solicitor-General to issue a writ of rebellion. Having perhaps been warned by his courtier brothers that he had reached the end of the road, Killigrew surrendered to the authorities, who kindly issued a warrant to protect him from arrest by his creditors for thirty days to give him time to try to settle his debts. A long list of new charges were brought against him in 1595, including an allegation that he had bribed the captain of the Queen's ship the Crane, to allow the pirate and traitor Captain Elliott to escape from Helford with a prize. No action seems to have been taken against him on this charge even, when, three years later, the master of one of Elliott's ships surrendered and told the authorities that Killigrew and Elliott had given the Crane's captain £100 to 'go into the country' until Elliott's ship had escaped. The value of courtier brothers is amply demonstrated by the leniency shown to Killigrew..
     In 1595 John Killigrew, captain of Pendennis, claimed the right to muster five nearby parishes for the castle's defence in defiance of the deputy lieutenants who had ordered John Trefusis to muster them for the defence of Penryn.
In the same year a boy from Penryn was passed off as the bastard son of John Killigrew of Arwennack. The Spanish had sent a ship to burn down Arwennack, perhaps because Killigrew, whom the Privy Council had been told had been bought by Spain, had reneged on his agreement. After exploding some fireworks near the house, and capturing the lad, the captain returned to Spain where he told King Philip that the boy was Killigrew's bastard. The lad was kept as a page at the Court, perhaps because it was thought that he might be of value in the future in persuading Killigrew to return to the Spanish fold..
     John Killigrew was mentioned in a deed dated 17 March 1596. 17 Mar. 1596: Bargain and sale. Jn. Killigrew and Arwennack, Esq., to Hugh Michell of Truro, gent. Treworgey, Treworgey Mills, Rosemorder, Rosemerryn, Tregedna, Helnoweth, Penare, Gilling and Killigrew, in parishes of Manaccan, St. Keverne, Budock and Mawgan in Meneage, and the rectories of St. Anthony and Manaccan.
     John Killigrew and Dorothy Monk were mentioned in a deed dated 7 June 1596. 7 June 1596 Final Concord. Hugh Michell, querant, and Jn. Killigrew Esq., and w. Dorothy, deforciants.
     In 1601, he told Cecil (Lord Burghley) that his father left him £10,000 in debt, and that this had cost im £20,000 in 'forfeits and advantages taken from him'.
     John died on 12 August 1605 in Budock, Cornwall.

     Of an old portrait of this Sir John it is said that "his dress shows he was a person valuing himself upon his clothes". He had 9 sons and 5 daughters, lived extravagantly and gambled, and left the estate on his death to his son (John) in a shattered condition.
The family were considered equal 27th of Cornwall's wealthiest families from the 1520s to the 1590s. He was suspected of treason, dismissed from his post and imprisoned for debt. Charges of misconduct levelled against him by a furious Privy Council while he was evading its attempts to secure his arrest in 1587, 1588 and 1589, and the long list of accusations made against him in 1595 are recorded in HPHC 1558-1603 ii, 395-7.

Biography: The Killigrews, father and son, opposed Mary Tudor, using their ships to keep the émigrés in the Normandy ports in touch with English affairs, and attacking Spanish vessels in the Channel. They were both put in the Fleet on 28 June 1556 ‘to be kept there apart in close prison’, and were lucky to be released after only three weeks. Back in favour under Elizabeth, Killigrew was put on the commission of the peace during his father’s lifetime, and, after succeeding to his estates, he became a leading and notorious figure in the county, indulging in cattle theft, ‘evil usage in keeping of a castle’ and ‘abuses’ over arranging the quarter sessions. His speciality, however, was using his office of piracy commissioner to maintain and trade with the pirates and smugglers who frequented the coast he could so easily control from Arwennack and Pendennis castle. His estates covered a large part of the Falmouth area, and he owned the fee farm of Penryn borough, so there was likewise no difficulty in his being returned to Parliament when he wished. He is not mentioned directly or indirectly in the known proceedings of the Commons, and one can only speculate on his motives for being elected.
Killigrew’s trafficking with the pirates had been known to the authorities since 1552, and in 1565 commissioners were appointed to undertake a formal investigation. But the man was powerful enough locally to evade the allegations against him. During 1575 and 1576 the Council wrote to him repeatedly about such matters as his imprisoning a French merchant and seizing four ships from Flushing. Even the good Earl of Bedford complained that ‘the castle in Mr. Killigrew’s charge is much decayed and almost unserviceable’. Just once, in January 1569, a commendation of his behaviour appears in the records, after he and Sir Arthur Champernown had seized some Spanish silver and conveyed it to the Tower. His appointment as a piracy commissioner is anomalous even by Elizabethan standards. The first date found for his acting as such (he may have been appointed much earlier) roughly coincides with repeated disturbances of the peace in Cornwall caused by his local quarrels in the summer of 1577, and with his fighting a duel with the vice-admiral Ambrose Digby. This dispute went to arbitration by Bedford, who awarded Digby £100, still unpaid in December 1579. In January 1582 Killigrew seized a Spanish ship sheltering in Falmouth under stress of weather. Having overpowered the crew he seized the cargo of holland cloth (perhaps this was a disappointment) and had the ship sailed to Ireland. As piracy commissioner he sent up a tendentious report, and then disappeared from view. An investigation by Richard Grenville II and Edmund Tremayne disclosed that Lady Killigrew had presented several lengths of cloth to her servants and that a daughter of the family had paid a debt with 20 yards of the material. Killigrew was summoned to attend before the Privy Council, but no details have survived of any further punishment.
He died intestate 5 Mar. 1584, leaving numerous unpaid debts to his brother Henry, on whom he had been sponging for many years. He was buried at Budock. Administration was not granted until 7 June 1603.2

The seducer was probably Sir John Parker, who succeeded the previous Captain who had died in 1603. When Killigrew divorced his wife (the cost of which reputedly ruined him), she was kindly treated by the burgesses of Penryn to whom she presented a silver cup incribed "from mayor to mayor, to the town of Penryn, where they received me in great misery, Jane Killigrew 1613.
