Barthelmew Burgoyne of Bokesworth or Bogesworth (Boxworth) (a 1334)
1. Barthelmew Burgoyne of Bokesworth
  m. Anne Freville (dau/heir of John Freville of Coxton)
  A. John Burgoyne (a 1398)
  m. ?? Harleston (dau of Roger Harleston of Essex)
  It is not clear how the following William fitted into this family. Visitation shows only 1 child of the above John, a John of Dry Drayton who is identified by the Harleian editor as 4th son. The Harleian editor then shows a William (son/heir of William) alongside that younger John who appears to be the John identified by VCH (Dry Drayton) who d 1435 after whom the Drayton estate "passed to an apparently younger son William, of Caxton". VCH (Impington) confuses the issue by suggesting that John, father of Margaret (m. George Heveningham) & Elizabeth (m. Thomas Thursby), was eldest son of Thomas (d 1470) son of John of Dry Drayton (d 1435). That contradicts both VCH (Dry Drayton) & VCH (Caxton) as well as Visitation, so we ignore that. We show William, father of William, as an elder brother of John of Dry Drayton but it should be noted that this is presumptuous as it seems clear that such a connection has not been proved, although it also seems very likely that his relationship with John must have been very close.

  Visitation (Cambridgeshire) notes "Vide Devon" alongside this William. We had thought that this indicated that William was father or grandfather of the William of South Tawton ( m. Alice Viell) who is the first mentioned in Visitation (Devon, 1620, Burgoyne). However, the extended report on the Visitations to Devon produced by J.L. Vivian in 1895 show the ancestry of that William Burgoyne differently.
  c.+ other issue - Richard (dsp), John (dsp), Bartholomew
  iii. Grace Burgoyne possibly of this generation
  m. John de Peyton (d 06.10.1417)
