Henry Thwaites of Lund
1. Edmund Thwaites of Lund (d after 04.1500)
  m. Joan
  A. Henry Thwaites of Lund (b 1475, dvp)
  Walker identifies Henry's wife as Agnes, dau of Ralph, 7th Lord Greystock, by Beatrix. Provisionally, given the apparent confusion with the Agnes we show as wife of his son, we follow another source that shows that Agnes (Anne) as d unm. However, we accept that it may be possible that it was this Henry who married Agnes Constable and that his son married another Agnes.
i. Sir Henry Thwaites of Lund (d c07.1520)
  Walker identifies Sir Henry's first wife only as Agnes. She appears to have been the following Agnes but there must be some doubt on this or on the identify of his mother's mother because of the apparent close blood connection. See the note just above.
  m1. Agnes Constable (dau of Sir Robert Constable of North Cliffe apparently by Beatrix Hatcliff, widow of Ralph, Lord Geystock)
  a. William Thwaites of Lund (d before 10.02.1588)
  Walker identifies William's wife as Anne Clapham (dau of William Clapham of Beamsley (by Margaret Midelton), m2. Francis Gale m3. John Ingleby) and his daughter Catherine as married to Anne's sister. As two other sources that show the marriages to Francis Gale & John Ingleby do not show this marriage, and as (as kindly pointed out by a contributor (JH, 03.02.19)) that would mean that her daughter Katherine (by William Thwaites) married her brother George, we suspect that she was misidentified by Walker.
