  ## 'Evidences' (p106) identifies the 2nd (unnamed) daughter of John as married to Sir Clement Higham. However, as mentioned above, the apparently more reliable pedigree on p107 shows her as daughter of Thomas Mouninge of Bury St. Edmunds. As shown on the connected page, the article on 'Higham of Higham Green and Barrow' in Visitation (Suffolk, 1561), which we view as one of the more reliable of (our versions of) the Visitations, clearly states that she was "daughter of John, not Thomas Monines or Munnings, of Semer Hall" whilst HoP ("Clement Heigham of Barrow") identifies her as "da. of John de Moomines of Semer Hall or of Thomas Monnynge or Munnings of Bury St. Edmunds: Provisionally, we support the former.
