and two bankrupting wars instead.

Elford of Shipster, Lindley of Leathley, Page of London, Willoughby of Galway Castle and Dublin Castle, Scott of Rossie, Rochelle of South Ockenden
BHO Magna Brittania, vol 6: Devonshire, General history: Baronets reports that "This ancient family is said to have been of Cornish extraction. Robert de Elford was sheriff of Devonshire in 1302. Before the year 1400, they settled at Longstone, in the parish of Shipstor, where the elder branch remained till 1748, when it became extinct in the male line. John Elford, of Longstone, in 1517, married the heiress of Scudamore. John, the fourth in descent from the last-mentioned John, married a co-heiress of Copleston, by whom he had four daughters; two of these married into the Fortescue family here?; and a third married Woollcombe. The Rev. Lancelot Elford, who, on the extinction of the Longstone branch, had become the male representative of the family, was father of Sir William Elford, created a baronet in 1800. A co-heiress of Hals married into this family. Sir William resides at Bickham, which has for a considerable time been the seat of his branch of the family". Visitation starts with ...
