1. Henry Scrope of Spennithorpe & Danby
  m. Elizabeth Conyers (d 03.03.1609, dau of Simon Conyers of Danby)
  BLG identifies Elizabeth's father Simon as grandson of Sir John Conyers of Hornby. However, although BLG also refers to the connection with the Earls of Yarborough which seems to confirm that this is meant to refer to the Sir John who died at the battle of Edgcote in 1469, the dates seem wrong. This is to be investigated further in due course.
