Families covered: Priaulx of Rusper, Priaulx of Southampton

(1) Berry (p342), used for the continuation, shows that Peter Preaux or Priaulx & Isabel Gouii has a 3rd son Peter (living in London in 1564) and reports that "One of his sons settled at Southampton, and was father of John Priaulx, S.T.P. Archdeacon of Salisbury, Rolliston Priaulx, and William Priaulx; and two daughters, Anne, who married Sir John Mompesson, Kt. and Elizabeth, who died unmarried". MGH disagrees with several of those details but it is clear that there is significant overlap with the following.
