Families covered: Winchombe of Bucklebury, Walsh of Grimblethorpe

BEB1841 ('Winchcombe of Bucklebury'), which identifies the arms of this family as "Az. on a chev. engr. between three Cornish choughs or, as many cinquefoils of the first", suggests that Sir Henry, 1st Bart, was son of John "son of the opulent clothier of that name, well known as the famous "Jack of Newbury"." TCB mentions by note a John, the elder (bur 03.06.1610), father of a John who had several children but supports Visitation in identifying Sir Henry as son of Henry son of Henry.
