William Jenour or Jenoure of Stonham Aspall, Suffolk ("lived about the time of Edward IV" who r. 1461-1483)
m. Catherine Whitinge of Branham
1. John Jenour or Jenoure of Stonham Aspall (b c1466, d 1542, prothonotary)
  m. (c1500) Ann or Alice Fincham (d 1547, dau of John Fincham of Owtwell)
  A. Richard Jenour or Jenoure of Stonham Aspall 'of Dunmow' (b 1510, d 26.11.1542)
  m. Wyborough Catesby (dau of Anthony Catesby of Whiston, m2. Richard Weston of Roxwell)
  i. Andrew Jenour of Alverston & Bigotts in Dunmowe, Essex (b 1537-8, d 12.1622)
  BEB1841 identifies Andrew's wife as Grysogona, dau/heir of Thomas Smith of Camden & relict of Edward Smith but Visitation (Essex, 1558, Jenour) identifies her as ...
  m. Gregoson (Crysogona) Smith (dau of Thomas Smith of Camden by Elizabeth Fitzherbert (relict of Edward Smith))
  a. Sir Kenelm Jenour (or Jenoure) of Much Dunmow, 1st Bart (d 1629)
  m. Jane Clarke (a 1640, dau of Sir Robert Clarke (baron of the Exchequer) by Margaret, dau of John Maynard (sister of Henry, relict of Sir Edward Osborne))
  (1) Sir Andrew Jenour, 2nd Bart of (Bigods in) Great Dunmow (d before 09.04.1692)
  Unusually, TCB clearly makes a mistake on this family. It reports that both of Sir Andrew's wives dsp and then reports that he was succeeded by his grandson, Maynard, who was son/heir of Andrew (by Sarah Milborn) who was son/heir of the 1st Bart (sb the 2nd?!) by his first wife. It is perhaps possible that Sir Kenelm, 1st Bart, had 2 sons called Andrew but we presume that that was not the case. BEB1841 shows that Sir Andrew had no children by his 1st wife and then reports several children by his second. However, the dates given by TCB make it clear that Andrew must have been born long before the 2nd Bart's 2nd marriage. Provisionally, we show all of the 2nd Bart's children as by his first wife but this may yet have to be revised in due course.
