Families covered: Tempest of Broughton

William Tempest of Broughton (d before 07.1490)
m1. (c1437) Johanna Metcalfe (dau of James Metcalfe of Nappa)
1. John Tempest (dvp before 1490)
  m. Agnes Banastre (dau of Richard Banastre)
  A. Roger Tempest of Broughton (d before 11.1537)
  m1. (c1499) Anne Carre (dau of Robert Carre)
BLG1952 reports that Roger was ward of Henry, Lord Clifford (presumably the 10th Lord Clifford), and identifies Anne's mother as Margaret, daughter of Henry, Lord Clifford. The name of the second Lord Clifford must be wrong as the dates do not match for any Lord Henry Clifford to have been Anne's grandfather. We show Anne as granddaughter of Thomas, 8th Lord, which is consistent with Commoners.
