John of Collaton is mentioned in A2A records of Yonge of Puslinch circa 1514, where he is recorded as John brother and heir to Jacob Pomeroy.
Jacob is Latinised James - Nothing definite found in IGI or in any other records thus far for either John or Jacob that date period -
could this be John son of Andrew who married Anne Mathew (son of John who married Strowde)
This John married Mary Slanning of Plympton St Mary where the later mentions of (presumably another) Andrew Pomeroy is found
IPM for John Pomeroy obtained from the Records Office at Kew however its in Latin ! Link here
OR there is John son of William Pomeroy and Mary Bevill who was at St Cleer in Cornwall whose Will was proved in 1618.
