William Bradshaw of Wendover, Buckinghamshire (d 04.10.1537)
That William was possibly/probably father of Henry (Chief Baron of the Exchequer) is given in VCH. The Wendover article notes that there was a brass in Wendover church which listed his 9 children and 23 grandchildren. Sadly, that brass was stolen in 1978. Fortunately, a rubbing of it has been reproduced on Lipscomb (Bucks, vol 2, p491). Thanks to a site visitor (DCS, 17.10.15) for drawing our attention to these connections and to an archived Gen-Medieval article (here) which identifies a possible parentage for William and suggests that his wife was ...

  m1. Henry White
  m2. Thomas Fermor of Somerton (son of Richard of Easton Neston)
  D.+ other issue (d young?) - Mau' (Maude or Matthew?), Alice mentioned by the brass
That there are some differences between the names mentioned by the brass and the names given by other sources is not a major problem given that some of the children may have been born after 1537 and/or some of the children may have died young and so not have been recorded in all sources.
2. John Bradshaw
  A.+ issue - Elizabeth, Edward, Margery, William, Alice, Bridget, Henry, Arthr
3. Agnes Bradshaw
  The above-mentioned brass does not name the spouses of any of the children. It shows that Agnes had the following children which differs slightly from the continuation: Briget, Alice, William, Henry, Briget. The above-mentioned archived Gen-Medieval article identifies Agnes as probable wife of ...
