2. Sir Walter Skull of Holte, Worcestershire
Visitation shows that Sir Walter had a daughter Joyce (m. Sir Edward Crofte). Thanks to a contributor (DS, 10.06.10) for drawing our attention to an archived message within soc.genealogy.medieval from the well-known genealogist, Douglas Richardson. That message reports that Joyce was of Sir Walter's 2nd marriage and reports also on his 1st marriage. However, there is some confusion as to the allocation of certain daughters of Sir Walter's 1st wife, Margaret Beauchamp, between her marriages. Richardson suggests that they were by her 2nd marriage (to John Wysham) whereas the Croft records suggest that at least one of them was a Skull. VCH (Worcestershire, vol 3, Parishes: Holt) is ambiguous on the matter. Provisionally, we show them here.

  (4) ?? Sturmy possibly the above Richard?
Described in Commoners (vol I, Prideaux-Brune of Place) as "cousin and co-heir of William Sturmy, of Wolf Hall" and in Visitation (Dorset, 1623, Brune) as "consanguinea et coh. Will'i Sturmy de Wolfall" was the undermentioned Elizabeth. Noting that BP1934 (Somerset) identifies the above Maud as "dau. and co-heir of Sir William Esturmi, of Chadham, Wilts, Lord of Wolf Hall", we presume that this Elizabeth was coheir of the above Sir William. However, the dates suggest that she must be of a later generation.
  (A) ??
  Uncertain on number of untervening generations. We do not know if Elizabeth was a Sturmy or a descendant of a Sturmy daughter.
