  • John Arundell (admiral)
  • Sir John Arundell of Trerice (1495 – 1561), nicknamed "Tilbury Jack" (or Jack of Tilbury), was a commander of the English Royal Navy at the time of King Henry VIII and Edward VI and twice High Sheriff of Cornwall. Arundell served Henry VIII as an Esquire to the Body, and was knighted at the Battle of the Spurs in 1513. In 1523 he achieved notability by the capture of a notorious pirate. Under Edward VI he was Vice-Admiral of the West, and in 1553 was High Sheriff of Cornwall at the time of the accession of Queen Mary.
  • Sir John died in 1561 and was buried at Stratton church. His third son, John Arundell, of his second wife, also became High Sheriff of Cornwall. His grandson, also called Sir John Arundell and nicknamed "Jack-for-the-King", was a prominent leader of the Royalist cause in Cornwall during the English Civil War, and partly in recognition of this his great-grandson, Richard, was raised to the Peerage as Baron Arundell of Trerice in 1664.

The Duke of Norfolk wrote shortly afterwards to Sir John Arundell, requesting him to bring his prisoner to the king's presence, and thanking him in the king's name for his 'valiant courage and bolde enterprise in the premises.' It was apparently to the same Sir John Arundell that Henry VIII wrote in 1544 requesting his attendance in the wars against the French king — an order which was, however, countermanded in order that Arundell 'with his servants, tenants, and others within his rooms and offices, especially horsemen,' might be held in readiness for other services. In the following reign he was vice-admiral of the king's ships in the west seas ; and in 1553, when he was sheriff of Cornwall, Queen Mary wrote requiring that he, with his friends and neighbours, 'should see the Prince of Spain most honourably entertained, if he fortuned to land in Cornwall.' By his first wife, a coheir of Bevil, he had two children, Roger, who married a Dinham, and Katherine, who married a Prideaux. By his second wife, an Erisy, he had a son John, who succeeded him at Trerice,and was, like him, sheriff of Cornwall, 'whose due commendation' Carew desired not to give 'because another might better deliver than myself, who touch him as nearly as Tacitus did Agricola.'
