Families covered: Payler of Thoralby, Pechell (Baronets), Praed of Trevethow, Pellew Lords Exmouth

The parentage of Sir Edward, 1st Bart, is not well known, something which is quite rare for someone who became a Baronet, but we have seen a web site which mentions church inscriptions & brasses which mention Sir Edward and his father-in-law, William Watkinson, and supplement the information provided on Sir Edward's family by our Main Sources for this family.
William Payler (Attorney in the North for Queen Elizabeth)
1. Sir Edward Payler 'of York', 1st Bart of Thoralby (Yorkshire) (d 1647, 2nd son)

  m. Margaret Fairfax (dau of Thomas Fairfax, 1st Viscount of Emley)
  i. Sir Watkinson Payler, 2nd Bart of Thoralby (dsps bur 30.09.1705)
  Sir Watkinson dsps. For some reason we have not yet been able to identify, shortly after Sir Watkinson's death Thomas Turner of Ileden, Kent, assumed the name Payler. Thomas later named his son Thomas Watkinson (Payler) so we assume that there was a marital (or godparent or similar) connection between the Paylers and the Turners.
