a. Sir John Stourton (dvp)
  BP1934 suggests that Sir John's wife, Gracia, was daughter of Thomas, Lord Hungerford. However, as was kindly brought to our attention by a contributor (APH, 19.03.06), the dates for any such Grace Hungerford do not match with Sir John's likely dates. Collins identifies John's wife merely as ...

  The connection to the above is supported by MGH (NS2, vol 3 (1890), 'The Family of Sydenham of Brimpton, co. Somerset', p325+) which identifies John's 1st wife as Katherine Payne with Joane, wife of John Sydenham, shown as their only child. What we show contradicts that as it follows various web sites (some of which appear to confuse this John with his father) and is partly supported by CTG (vol 1, 1834, p409 (in Addenda)).
