Statue of Sir James Tillie. Probably late C17; resited. Lead statue, set on a stone
plinth. Life-size statue of Sir James Tillie, wearing a wig and coat and carrying a
scroll, with good detail of costume. Set on a square stone plinth. Sir James Tillie
was a self-made man, knighted by James II. Having no coat of arms, he assumed that of
the German Count Tilly, which he continued to bear until his pretensions were brought
to the King's notice and he was ceremoniously divested of them. He built a house and
church in St Mellion parish (the house now in Pillaton parish), which he named
Pentyley or Pillaton, after himself.
