If it is of any assistance, there are four Flamank's listed in Cornwall in the phone book.
One of them may be into geneology and have traced back their relatives.

There was a Marc Flamanck who used to be a sysadmin at the University of Plymouth.

There's a Flamanck 'O Danser - but I think they decend from a Spanish bloodline..

Angove (An Gof) is a bit like "Smith" is to the English.........and I THINK Flamanck means (meant) FLEMISH, possibly indicating a non Cornish genealogical heritage. Tom Flamanck's dad was one of the tax gatherers for England that the 'revolt' was partly about, so there was a perhaps a bit of generational rebellion. Some things don't change. Shame so many people were killed.

I'm probably just thick, but I never read "An Gof" as the surname of the man. I always though he was called "Michael Joseph", the Blacksmith.
Being called Michael Joseph would not have been odd, as Cornwall waspretty well completely Catholic at the time.

At that time, the Cornish were monoglot Cornish speakers and the great man would have been known as Myghal Josep an Gof, which can subsequently be translated into English as Michael Joseph the Smith.

Oh? Hun, what evidence do you base that on?

Bit of a long shot Does anyone know if there are any relations to these two living today?
i have to admit this has always intrigued me, is there a direct line from Angof and Flamank which can be traced today, what happened to Angof's family, we know he was a smith, where was his business in St Keverne, is there any decent information about the man before 1497?
