  m1. Anne Monines (dau of John (or Thomas?) Monines or Moonines or Munnings )
  Visitation identifies Anne as "daughter of John, not Thomas Monines or Munnings, of Semer Hall". BLG1886 identifies her as "dau. of John de Moonines, of Seamer Hall". HoP ("Clement Heigham of Barrow") identifies her as "da. of John de Moomines of Semer Hall or of Thomas Monnynge or Munnings of Bury St. Edmunds: Provisionally, the connection supports the former.
