This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

  i. Ivetta Wawton
  Walker shows that Ivetta married Thomas Westropp of Brettonby but, noting that there appears to have been some duplication/contradiction within his records, we follow the Witham records, supported by Visitation (Foster 1875, Yorkshire, 1584/5+1612, Westroppe of Corneburgh), which show that she married ...
  m. Thomas Witham of Bretonby
  ii. Margaret Wawton
  m1. William Tocketts of Tocketts
  Walker, who gives Margaret's dates as 1435-1525, reports that William succeeded his brother John in 1519 and dsp 1526 but shows George as her 2nd husband. The Witham records, which report that Margaret d 1479, confirm that Margaret was widow of William Tacketts (sic) when she married ...

Sir Robert Holywode of Holywood & Artaine, co. Dublin (d before 12.09.1430)
BLG1886 (Dowdall of Ireland), supported by BLGI1958 (Nangle formerly of Kildalkey), identifies Sir Robert's wife as Elizabeth, dau of Christoph (Plunkett), 3rd Lord Killeen). The dates make that appear unlikely so we show her as ...

  CTG (vol 7, article I, p18), which supports the following except that it does not name Robert's wfe, identifies this Robert as grandson of Robert FitzRalph, founder of Beauchief Abbey. That appears to confuse 2 Roberts, with the founder of the Abbey actually (according to Hunter) being great-uncle of the Robert who was this Robert's grandfather.

  (1) Norman de Alfreton of Alfreton (dsp 1269) named Thomas by CTG
