      The document below is the Prerogative Court of Canterbury copy of the will, dated 12 December 1505 and proved January 1506, of Eleanor (nee Washbourne) Scrope Wyndham (d.1505/6), ... The testatrix was the daughter of Norman Washbourne (1433-1482) and Elizabeth Kniveton or Kynaston. She is said to have been from Worcestershire. The testatrix’ first husband, whom she married by licence dated 25 November 1447, was Richard Scrope (d.1485), ... After the death of Richard Scrope (d.1485), the testatrix married Sir John Wyndham (d.1502), ... By Sir John Wyndham (d.1502), the testatrix had an only daughter, Frances, who married Sir John Saintclere. By Richard Scrope (d.1485), the testatrix had a son, Stephen, and a daughter, Dorothy (d.1491), who died young, and seven daughters who lived to adulthood: -Elizabeth (d.1537),Eleanor, Margaret (d.1515), Mary (d.1548) Katherine, Jane,and Anne, a nun at Barking.
      The testatrix does not mention her daughter, Margaret (d.1515), in her will, perhaps because Margaret’s husband, Edmund de la Pole (1472?-1513), 8th Earl of Suffolk, was an outlawed exile at the time:
