There are no earlier PENTECOST entries in the Totnes parish registers and this surname does not appear anywhere in the Protestation Returns for Devon of 1641 - suggesting that he moved to Totnes sometime during the Civil War. The name is, however, found in Cornwall so perhaps he was a Royalist soldier who never quite made it home!
