Hi Edward,

This is a question very close to the difficult issue of whether William Seager forged a pedigree for Richard Weston, First Earl of Portland (see

You might find the following helpful in your research:-

* Wills of Robert and James Weston quoted in the footnotes to page 94 of Robert Edmond Chester Waters's "Genealogical Memoirs of the Extinct Family of Chester of Chicheley";

* "Rev. John BALL (1591-1639)"(

* Various discussions in soc.gen.medieval, including "The Parents of Mildred Weston" (28/09/2011 by wjhonson), "New Walton Descent from Edward III" (24/11/2011 by wjhonson) and "Additonal Evidence for New Walton Descent from Edward III" (08/12/2011 by wjhonson); and

* Burke's Landed Gentry's view of the family under "Weston of Wolveton" (

For my money, it seems clear that Alice Bawle was the daughter of John Weston and his wife Cecily, but the doubts about Cecily being the sister of the Earl of Westmorland should continue to be reflected in our profiles pending further evidence.
