  • Notes 
    • Margaret, the third daughter, married Edward Fiennes, of Broughton Castle, who died in the year 1528, leaving a son, Richard. Richard is mentioned in his grandmother's will; he succeeded to the family honours and estates. His sister Elizabeth, married Sir Francis Barrantyne, of Great Haseley,' Oxon.
      From Dame Ann's will we learn that Margaret Fiennes took as her second husband Thomas Nevell, who, as we learn from the will, had a young son named Wilham. Thomas Nevell was of Holt, Leicester. According to Nichols''History of Leicester,' vol. ii., p. 730, he was three times married: (1)to Clara, daughter and coheir of Ralph Nevell, of the same family, by whom he had a daughter, Margaret, eventually her father's heir; (2) Katherme, daughter of Sir Geoffrey Foljambe, of Walton ; (3) daughter of . . ., of Oxfordshire, and this third wife was no doubt Margaret, widow of Edward Fiennes. Sir Thomas Nevell was Sheriff of Leicester in the year 1539.
