Vivian [p. 160] reports Henry de Champernon was married to Joan, daughter of Sir Henry de Bodrigan. Trigg [p. 549] states Sir Henry de Bodrigan, at the marriage of his daughter to Henry de Champernon, gave inter alia the manor of Tywardreth, and William de Bodrigan, sometime Archdeacon of Cornwall, uncle of her father, gave her at the same time certain lands in Tredrym. Indeed, Henry de Campo Arnulphi was a tenant in Tewardrayth [Tywardreth] and Bodrugan, co. Cornwall in 1303 [Feudal Aids, 1: 203] and the manor of Tywardreth was in the possession of her son, William, at his death in 1353. At the death of her nephew, Sir Otho Bodrigan in 1331, he was holding Bodrigan and Trevelyan, co. Cornwall of Joan, widow of Henry (CIPM, 7: no. 385), and in 1334 at the IPM of Ralph de Bello Prato he was holding land in Pelhalym, co. Cornwall of Joan, late the wife of Henry de Campo Arnulphi [CIPM, 7: no. 569]. On 24 Oct 1331, Joan received license to "marry whomsever she will of the king's allegiance" [Cal. Patent Rolls, 1330-34, p. 191].

"The manor of Trelawne in Palynt, belonged at an early period to the Bodrugans. Sir Henry Bodrugan gave it as marriage portion, with his daughter to Henry Champernowne." The descent of these estates through Champernowne to Bonville is apparently accounted for by the marriage of Nicholas Bonville, of Wiscombe and Shute, born about 1293, to Joan daughter of Henry de Champernown, by his wife Joan, daughter of Henry Bodrugan. The agreement for this married is dated 25 Nov, 1328. It was made between Stephen de Hacombe and Otho de Bodrugan, to the effect that Nicholas Bonville should marry Joan Champernowne, who was probably the niece of Brodrugan.
