This section was first launched 29.11.11 as a section of a Temporary page. It was moved here after review led to acceptance that there was little chance of our making a significant improvement to it in the near future and that it was 'good enough' to be promoted into the main database.
John Wymondesold or Wymondsold

  m1. Magdalen Allington (dau/heir of John Allington)
  i. Elkin Wymondsold 'of Southwell' (d by 1662)
  m. Jane Dawes (dau of Sir Abraham Dawes)
a. Sir Dawes Wymondsold or Wymondsell of Putney
  Visitation ends showing (Sir) Dawes's marriage to Jane Cooke and their daughter Jane. However, it appears that they also had a son whose name appears to have been Sir Robert but who is sometimes referred to as Sir Dawes, thereby leading to additional confusion as to the generation of the daughter Jane. For example, Le Neve, in his 'Pedigrees of the Knights' (edited by George Marshall, 1873) shows Sir Dawes (father of Jane by an unnamed 1st wife) as son of an earlier Sir Dawes and (the son) as m2. Elizabeth Gold. However, TCP (vol 4, 'Clarges') identifies the daughter Jane as Sir Dawes's only daughter by his 1st wife ...
m1. Jane Cooke (d 20.06.1718, dau of Sir Robert Cooke of Hynham by Jane)
  (1) Sir Robert Wymondsell of Putney (b 1658-9, d 28.07.1687)
  BEB1841 ('Clarges of St. Martin's in the Fields') identifies Elizabeth Gould's 1st husband as Sir Dawes but TCP (vol 4, 'Clarges'), which notes that some sources do name him Sir Dawes, confirms that he was Sir Robert.
  m. (10.1684) Elizabeth Gould (dau of Sir Thomas Gould of London, m2. Sir Walter Clarges)
  (2) Jane Wymondsell
  m. Sir Walter Clarges, Bart (m2. Jane Herbert, m3. Elizabeth Goiuld)

  b. Judith Wymondsell identified as dau of Sir James Wymondsell of Putney but possibly fits here
  m. (1652) William Dowdeswell of Pull & Bushley (d 1683)
  m2. (sp) Jane Coleman of Suffolk
