|January 18th||Thomas Tregosse (Death)|
Born in St. Ives, Rev. Thomas Tregosse (c.1600 - 1670) was a Puritan and Vicar of Mylor and Mabe who was ejected from his living on August 24th, 1662 under the Act of Uniformity for being a nonconformist.
Susan Elizabeth Gay (January 12th) relates that he subsequently formed an Independent Congregation in Falmouth in 1662 and was jailed for three months for preaching at the Congregational Sunday School in Falmouth.
He was released from his fourth term of imprisonment by Royal Decree but was arrested again for preaching in a private home in Great Torrington. In his later years, he increased the frequency of his preaching to Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays but restricted his activities to the Penryn area where he died on this day in 1670.
