It is interesting to compare this Assessment with the Return preceding it, made twenty years earlier, and to notice the changes in the names of the inhabitants and the alterations in the value of the their possessions. It will be observed that the names "Gyon" and "Byllyng," who were among the principal inhabitants in 1521-3, are no longer found in St. Minver. The latter will be found rated in St. Tudy. (See Hist. of Trigg Minor, vol. i, p. 388.)
